Under Wraps

Relay is proud to announce its participation in Under Wraps, an international design launch to be held at Ferrious, Manchester.

Showcasing the best of European Design including brands Droog, ABR and naughtone, Ferrious has also given over their beautiful showrooms to Buzzispace, Örsjö and Zeitraum, who fresh from their successes at London Design Week will be making another welcome outing.

The launch night will also see the UK unveiling of a new, revolutionary product from James Dyson. Launched in New York last night the ‘Air Multiplier’ desk fan, like all great Dyson products, mixes revolutionary engineering with practical design.

Dyson has created a product that he hopes will provide a greener alternative to office air conditioning and a safer and more efficient product for use at home. He says “I’ve always been disappointed by fans. Their spinning blades chop up the airflow, causing annoying buffeting. They’re hard to clean. And children always want to poke their fingers through the grille. So we’ve developed a new type of fan that doesn’t use blades.” Unlike top-heavy conventional fans, the Dyson fan has an energy-efficient motor at its base, meaning it has a low centre of gravity and does not topple over.

We haven’t seen it yet, but cannot wait till Thursday night to see it up-close and in action. If you’re as impatient as us, check out this film for a peek.
