Bladeless Ceiling Fan Goes from Rendering to Reality for an Indiana Startup on Indiegogo

Share Article

Raising 50% of their goal in the first week, Exhale Fans released its bladeless ceiling fan on the popular crowd-funding website Indiegogo. The Nikola Tesla inspired design uses a series of stacked discs rather than blades to move air more efficiently. This sleek new design creates a gentle vortex in your living room.

Exhale Fans—Rendering to Reality

Rendering to Reality

We are excited to be manufacturing in the USA and bring jobs to our local community

Wanting to create a more comfortable environment led to the innovation of the Exhale fan. Its stacked discs use laminar flow to smoothly draw air upward through the center of the fan, propelling it in a 360⁰ pattern outward along the ceiling. This airflow creates a gentle vortex in any room. With its low profile and minimal appearance, this bladeless ceiling fan fits well into design interiors from the ultra-modern to traditional.

Dedicated to manufacturing the product in the USA, Exhale Fans has built a relationship with Future Mold, a local injection molding and assembly facility in New Albany, Ind. "We are excited to be manufacturing in the USA and bring jobs to our local community," says President and Inventor Nik Hiner.

Exhale Fans is now into its third week of funding with indiegogo (, selling fans for as low as $250 for 'Early Birds'. The Funding will be used to finish production tooling, purchase raw materials, and UL approval. The company is scheduled to begin production in Q1 with first shipments by March.
