Good interior design and renovation need not be expensive
A reader reminded me to share about our Artemis fan and so, happy to report that it is ALL DONE! We have used it now for about a month, and again, never cease to amaze anyone walking into our apartment for the following reasons:
1) It is made of wood, real wood!
2) It does not spin fast, yet the surrounding and right under the fan core areas are immediately cooled down
3) Its blades are curved (most fan blades are not)
4) It’s super, duper quiet, even when spinning at top speed. No more of those whish-whoosh sounds (which really scares the hell out of me).
5) We hand carried it back from Hong Kong (talk about NEVER GIVING UP!)
Just three months ago, our living room looked like this:
Now, with Artemis as a highlight, and a country barn red wall to go with the setting, our living room looks like this:
Isn’t it amazing!?
All the online reviews I read up about the Artemis were more or less accurate. Making use of the law of aerodynamics, which is the study of movement of air around things (for the geeks who want to know more, revise your Primary 5 Science here, the more advanced geeks can read this thesis about aerodynamic blade design), the Artemis fan is able to generate maximum wind covering a wide peripheral and immediately under it while using minimum energy (hence the slow blade spin). More blades doesn’t mean more wind, its the angle of the blades that matters. If you notice, when you stand right under a normal ceiling fan, there is actually very little air movement (i.e. wind). That’s because of the vortex (pressure is lowest nearest to the core region). The Artemis doesn’t disappoint. And with the price point we bought from Hong Kong, it makes it one of the best appliance we have invested in so far.
