The Mini-ELEFAN by IDEA International is Conveniently Bendable

The Mini-ELEFAN by IDEA International is a fun fan that may have been inspired by institutional cooling units, but could have easily been influenced by an elephant trunk. A completely unique take on the traditional room cooler, it is made to rest on desks and other surfaces. With a slinky-like air duct that can be condensed like a can, elongated like a smokestack and curved like a periscope, the fan is as practical as it is adorable.

Designed by Japanese design studio Yuen’to, the Mini-ELEFAN by IDEA International measures only seven inches long and is charged by a USB cord. It operates on three settings: strong, weak and rhythmical (a combination of the two). It comes with a washable filter and can also be used as an air freshener.
