FANTASIZED Uses Discarded Fans to Make Livable Products
View Slideshow

You might recall a while back when we featured lighting made from discarded fans by appropriately-named design studio Fantasized. Well, they’re back with a new collection named Livable Products. Not only are each of these items handmade, they’re also sustainable and are made with classic weaving techniques.


Each of the objects in Livable Products are created from discarded fans purchased from junk shops. Afterwards, local craftsman use traditional weaving techniques to create pieces appropriate for any room. By continuously searching for new, creative ways to use “waste”, it supports their well-balanced design approach and also raises environmental awareness. The latest collection builds on the original one that used old fans to create a series of lighting.
