How was Fanzart Started

Having discovered fancy grandeur fans in the United States, the Fanzart owners wanted to install the same at their house in Bangalore. But they could not find the designer fans they were looking for, in India. It is out of this situation that the idea behind Fanzart has taken shape.

The Fanzart team initiated research to gain a better understanding of the designer fans market. In the process, they got in touch with Designer Fan product brands from other countries, spoke to them, visited them, and then started looking out for Design Firms and Factories.

Fanzart's validation process involved interior architects, designers, HNI / UHNIs, and understanding the buying process for fans. In the process, the Fanzart team understood the existing gaps in the fan industry mainly from architects and interior designers. Hence, when architects and interior designers were told about the concept of Fanzart, they received affirmative response and immediate support.

Fanzart adds the 'art' factor to the fans, as such the company's name is a combination of the words 'fans' & 'art'

We were bringing art to fans and the only options were artisan and fansart, and we finally froze on Fanzart - explains Tarun.
