A 3d printed fan with butterfly structure
Exorbit is a ventilator, produced with rapid prototyping technology. Using this technology enables us to design the fan in a way that surpasses your expectations of what a conventional ventilator should look like. In den contrasting fields of nature and digital fabrication Exorbit makes clear new opportunities in design.
Exorbit makes use of a butterfly´s wing natural structure. This structure builds up to a net and gives shape to the object. Furthermore this shell holds the rotors at the inside. This reversed construction and the fact that Exorbit follows an elliptic orbit instead of moving around it´s centre this ventilator radically reinterprets the context of form and function.
