With Dyson’s Air Multiplier, a fan with no blades that is capable of multiplying air mass 18 times, it has again become evident that design plus technology very often means it is possible to innovate in the field of traditional products.
The air in this fan is propelled through a thin slit across the whole perimeter of the ring, thus creating a stream that travels through an aerodynamic channel. In turn, this channel picks up surrounding air mass and pulls it towards the main stream. It is capable of uninterruptedly expelling 450 litres of air per second.

The Dyson patent digital motor has no dynamo brushes and is therefore more efficient and produces no CO². The motor is placed at the base and provides stability to the structure as well as allowing circular and vertical movement. Due to the lack of blades and a ventilation grille, the fan is easy to clean and safe.
