Unlike a typical fan, this stylish personal fan features Vornado-exclusive Vortex technology, which powerfully circulates the air. Its deep-pitched blade, ducted airflow, and focusing AirTensity grill projects a beam of air up to 20 feet, creating the perfect whisper-quiet breeze and eliminating hot and cold spots. Choose from two speed settings-the unit oscillates and flips to direct air where it's needed most. When not in use, it can fold down to conceal the fan, which not only helps keep the fan free of dust, but also adds to the unit's overall modern look. Other highlights include a high-gloss finish, a powerful electric motor, and lightweight construction at just 1-1/7 pounds.
