Through the use of simple and refined shapes, the Nácar “abanico” is presented as a tribute to the hand fan craftsman’s guild. The design uses ebony wood with the intention of highlighting nacre, a material that is technically very complex to work with.

Organised by Valencia World Design Capital 2022, the exhibition “Designing the Air” traces a journey through one of the most traditional pieces of the Valencian artefact memory: the hand fan. Studio Inma Bermúdez has been one of the twenty design profiles in charge of reinterpreting this traditional product to recover its connection with contemporary culture.
