Fanimation Torto Ceiling Fans Offer Innovation In Design & Functionality

Fanimation FP7900MG Torto 3 Blade Ceiling Fan Metro Grey With Integrated Light & C20 Remote Control The Fanimation FP7900MG Torto 3 Blade Ceiling Fan is unlike any that's come before it. Uniquely twisted blades provide an ultra-modern look that will make this fan a much envied centerpiece, but that's not all they do...

The Torto's airflow pattern is unlike that of your typical ceiling fan. The twisted blades push air at an angle, rather than straight down. Hence, you will feel far more air flow when you sit or stand next to it than when you are directly underneath it.

Torto fans come equipped with an integrated light and C20 remote control, are available in Metro Grey and Oil-Rubbed Bronze, and are suited for dry as well as damp locations.

Remember to use coupon code FANSALE for an extra discount on Fanimation Torto Ceiling Fans.

More Inspirational Public Lighting From Leni Schwendinger

In last week's video, Leni Schwendinger took us on an educational and inspirational walk through New York City, studying its various public, commercial and residential light sources. Here's another video from Leni Schwendinger, this focusing on an incredible streetscape commission at the Louisville 2nd Street Bridge. The full description from YouTube is below.

The underside of the bridge is enhanced with a floating effect of cast light; outlining and illuminating the I-beam surfaces and textures. The duo-tone color scheme -- red and gold -- is balanced with the cream color of paint coating. The colors -- bridge as canvas and the lighting -- are based on a celebration of amber liquid bourbon and colors of sunset.

On the face of the bridge pointing toward Washington and Witherspoon a line of bright beacons are programmed in dynamic and rhythmic sequences which whiz up and down Second Street each hour and count down the hour -- from sunset to Midnight on weekdays, and sunset to 2:00 Am on Friday and Saturday. On the hour, beneath the bridge, the sequences bring the old I-beam structure to life, as if the bridge itself is breathing.

Technologically this design is notable for the use of standard fluorescent lights -- most often found in offices and industrial locations, combined with color filters and an advanced programming system to create an ambience of warmth and animation. The beacons can also be seen on Paris' Eiffel Tower.
Fluorescent Lighting has come under criticism for being too cold and impersonal, but if you ask me this video does a wonderful job of putting that rumor to rest.

The Ultimate Barbecue Light by Kichler Lighting

Following the thread of yesterday's post, here's another nifty little outdoor lamp from Kichler Lighting.

Kichler 15123BK Outdoor Mr11 Barbecue Fixture Black Material (Not Painted) Any proud grill-master will tell you that there is more to barbecuing than just flipping meat; it's all about timing and finesse and without proper lighting even the best of us can slip up from time to time.

The Kichler 15123BK Outdoor Mr11 Barbecue Fixture is designed specifically to illuminate your grill during evening and nighttime barbecues. What makes this fixture truly great is not just the amount of light it provides (it provides plenty), but the virtually unlimited adjustability it offers. The lamp's flexible neck allows you to direct the light exactly where you need it, so you'll know exactly when your meat's good and ready to serve.

Also, once the grill's turned off you can always readjust the lamp to provide an additional light source for late night schmoozing. Who knew an outdoor lamp could offer such functional versatility?
