The Sensu Punkah Open Navigation

„THE SENSU PUNKAH is the quintessential result of a 12 year journey. A journey driven by the quest to create nothing less than the best ceiling fan in the world. It took me from the ancient Orient through to state of the art robotic technology in todays’ Germany. I discovered that when we combine cultures the results are destined to be unique and extraordinary.
THE SENSU PUNKAH is one of these special results.“

Oliver Kessler


Gentle, draft free, ventilation is what makes the swinging ceiling fan (Punkah) so unique. In antiquity the Maharajas and Pharaos enjoyed the silent circulating of air that a Punkah offered. The tranquil pendula swing of the Punkah became part of the Indian and Arabian heritage and could also be found in 19th century Southern USA and in schools in the Australian outback. These majestic fans disappeared with the beginning of the 20th century due to the availability of cheap electric motors, allowing the mass-production of noisy rotating fans.

These, however, cannot substitute the sensation provided by the soft natural breeze and soothing movement of a silent Punkah.
