After nutural disaster, there were rolling blackouts in the city, and during that time all the air conditioning was shut down. Many people in the office were using plastic fans with advertisements on them, like the ones distributed in front of the train station, to cool off a bit. Instead of tucking fans between piles of documents and bookends, this freestanding fan was designed to fit in with the desktop. Because they can also be used as decorative fans, they are available in a variety of patterns and are used as company souvenirs and museum goods in a variety of settings.
