Here is a little bit of text from Carretero:


Computers, cars, ventilators... all use fans, which although usually hidden by a grating shield are components of many everyday objects.


This is a Fan proposes an alternative presentation of this device, which is as functional as it is discreet.

A protecting cage designed as a case/support in which the fan is simply strapped suddenly brings it to life. Fragile and naked.

This is a Fan won the Seb prize at the Design Parade 2009 festival at the Villa Noailles (Hyères).
