Concept

The punkah is the initial man-made ventilation device. It was originally cut from a palmyra leaf and later manufactured mainly from fabric, wood or bird´s feathers. For generations the punkah was a symbol of wealth and luxury and could be found in oriental high places such as palaces of Egyptian Pharaohs and Indian Maharadjahs.

THE SOLITAIRE Punkah brings back the majestic punkah fan with its slow pendular movement. It instantly creates an almost tangible relaxing and calming atmosphere and it is the exquisite complement of an exclusive interior design.

THE SOLITAIRE Punkah is based on a highly energy efficient technology that combines a counterweight balanced blade with a computer controlled electric driver. It is engineered and manufactured in Germany by Rohde & Schwarz Teisnach.

THE OSTRICH blade is based on the Royal Egyptian Punkah of the Pharaohs with large South African ostrich feathers and Swarovski crystals.
