Korral Kool

Project: Korral Kool, Inc. Consumer product misting fan.
 
Objective: Korral Kool desired to capitalize on their successful cattle industry cooling device with a scaled down consumer product version. Much like space heaters mounted on a pole, this device is a mist cooling fan whose advantage lies in the design of the cowling for a strong consistent area cooling effect. Further studies developed the product into a community gathering spot where users come together socially and stay "kool" in the hot summer outdoors. Internal lighting features make it a beacon of gathering at night.
