Raffaele Iannello has carved for himself a cosy little creative niche, where whimsy meets marketability. The Italian industrial designer, probably best known for his Alessi-esque (and completely macabre) "Voodoo/The Ex" knife block has a healthy sense of humour and the absurdity of his creations are well received not least in his latest release: Upside Down, unveiled this year in Milan. A 1:6 scale upturned replica of a Hughes/MD 500 Helicopter, this ceiling fan has to be one of the most ostentatious home electronic fittings available. Geekery gone mad, but is it "design"? Thoughts?
