All you have to do is apply one of the 5 interchangeable color films on the back of the device. Soft and light, the color brings a delicate touch of originality. Physical interactions are kept to a minimum. A simple touch allows to change temperature while all other controls are made from the user's smartphone.

The Coanda, designed by Constantino Papatsoris and Santiago Castillo, is a smart, connected ceiling fan that communicates with smartphones via a dedicated app. Users can toggle the built-in LED light fixture, control location or time-based "on" and "off" settings, airflow intensity, automated temperature optimization based on seasonal changes, and communication with smart thermostats to reach optimal temperature and energy savings. The Coanda rethinks the traditional ceiling fan design, accounting for fluid dynamics and inspiration provided by computer fans and industrial air amplifiers.
The clock is reflected the zeitgeist, which is associated with smart, tech and durable materials. High-tech face of the product is represented by a semi torus carbon body and time display (light holes). Carbon replaces metal part, as a relic of the past and emphasizes the function part of the clock. The absence of central part shows that innovative LED indication replace classical clock mechanism. Soft backlight can be adjusted under their owner's favorite color and a light sensor will monitor the strength of illumination.
