Duplex is a high performance 48-inch indoor ceiling fan that offers chic form and high function. The housing is shrouded in a translucent charcoal gray shell and the metal blade ring features scalloped detailing, adding interest and refinement to the understated design. Slender blade wings gently twist at the base, making it easy to move great volumes of air. Duplex offers six powerful speed options and an LED light kit that offers excellent illumination.

Role: Duplex was designed at Michael Graves Architecture and Design for Fanimation. I sketched, 3D modeled, and rendered this concept with direction from MGA&D Principals Yuka Midorikawa and Donald Strum.


Simple and sleek, Duplex combines a low-luster matte finish with a deep smoked glass motor cover and matching light bezel.


This dual-bladed fan is the perfect addition to any modern space.

Concept Sketch

The original sketch I drew shows a translucent glass dome and thin metal ring


Below is the concept I modeled in SolidWorks and rendered in Keyshot.


Duplex retails for $400 and is available at Bed Bath and Beyond, Houzz, Y-Lighting, Lumens, and many other lighting outlets.
