DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
WL : When I saw the dusty fan standing in my room, I wanted to get rid of it. But I had to keep it for the summer, and inspired by it, I decided to design a new type of fan.
DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
WL : Although it is a fan, I wanted it to look like furniture. Also, I'd like to emphasize that it exists even if it doesn't work and just stands.
DI: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
WL : I will start a new project with this series of design.
DI: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
WL : It took about half year from ideation to prototyping.
DI: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
WL : At that time, I was taking a furniture design class, and while my classmates were making furniture like chairs and tables, I wanted to try something different by using my engineering background
DI: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
WL : This design is my personal project, and I want to keep it personally rather than commercially.
DI: Who is the target customer for his design?
WL : Single person household.
DI: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
WL : Brise means breeze in French. When the wind comes out, it really feels like a breeze, so I named it that way.
DI: What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
WL : Actually, it was my first experience to produce my design. Problems that need to be improved have been found while using them differently than when simply designing concepts. I realized why I should be a designer who behaves rather than just thinks.
DI: Any other things you would like to cover that have not been covered in these questions?
WL : No, thanks.
