The Architecture and Design Awards Asia-Pacific has honored both Essence® and Haiku® with SenseME™ by Big Ass Fans® with 2014 A&D Trophy Awards.
The A&D Trophy Awards celebrate excellence in architecture, interior design and product design across Asia-Pacific and beyond. Both Essence and Haiku with SenseME were honored in the professional product design category. Awarded by a prestigious panel of international architects and designers, the professional product design category rates innovation, functionality, form, symbolism and sustainability.
Haiku with SenseME, the world’s first smart ceiling fan, learns and predicts your comfort preferences using a series of precise environmental sensors. The technology automatically increases the fan’s speed when a room heats up and slows the fan when it’s cooler to always keep you comfortable.
Essence is both an essential money-saving machine and a work of art for commercial spaces, indoors or out. Ranging from 8- to 14-ft. (2.4 – 4.2m) in diameter, Essence features a gearless direct-drive motor that provides quiet, comforting air movement. Ideal for lobbies, pavilions and seaside dining, a single Essence does the work of more than 28 standard ceiling fans at just one-seventh of the operating cost.
