Panasonic Echizen Lacquer Bladeless Air Generator Q – art or office supply, either way it’s super expensive

It’s hot and you’ve probably got a fan running at the very least. It’s probably some throw away plastic monstrosity that is an affront to beauty everywhere though. Why not upgrade that ugly thing to the Panasonic Echizen Lacquer Bladeless Air Generator Q, the most beautiful fan in the world.

This doesn’t look like your average fan. It’s an orb that takes in air and then, somehow, blows out 7 times the amount that it took in. It looks like a piece of modern art, save for the dials on its base. If not for that, you’d probably stare at it questioning it’s meaning.

This is a limited edition fan and made to order. Each one is lovingly handcrafted by Echizen Lacquerware artisans. Is the plastic one you picked up at the corner shop handcrafted by anyone? No, no it is not. There are five air flow settings and a timer that can be set for one to three hours. It runs on AC power and will make your living space look cultured. Of course, it’s not cheap, this fan will run you $1,813 because, art.
