Taking on the shape of the traditional Uchiwa bamboo and paper fans, the Maiko hand fan designed by Piergil Fourquie features a contemporary design made using modern technology.

Printed out of polyamide on a 3D printer with a wooden stick to hold it up, the fan may feature a classic shape, but it embodies a whole new feeling. The polygon patterning gives the body a light waffle-like texture that allows for maximum airflow when wafting through the air. Painted with custom colors including neon ombre hues, the handle also has a modern look that turns this fan into a fashion statement.
