Role

Designer

Ideation began with form development to understand the basic shape and mechanism. The designs that stood out the most were compact and calm, blending in with the workspace environment.

The system is programmed to react to ambient temperature changes, wirelessly driving the fan through a transmitter and receiver, outputting air thermally regulated to the desired speed.

The system is controlled by two PIC microcontrollers - stored in the base of the fan - enabling the user to take full advantage of Aura’s adjustable design.

Aura’s design style is simple, modern and representative of nature - with aesthetics based on existing market solutions.
