Leading ventilation manufacturer Nuaire has been commissioned to develop a special, one-off bathroom fan in gold, to complement the overall décor of a very distinguished customer.
After seeing recent coverage of another fan manufacturer who showed a gold fan, Nuaire’s customer – who wants to remain anonymous – felt that it was exactly what was required in his luxurious bathroom redesign, and contacted the company to commission the one-off, exclusive version of the very successful Cyfan.
As gold isn’t Nuaire’s usual material of choice, the firm took advice from local Caerphilly goldsmiths Celtic Gold, and they were delighted to help create a gold extract fan. Nuaire’s first idea was to reference their Welsh heritage by using only Welsh gold, however Celtic Gold’s owner Alan Jones revealed that there wouldn’t be enough Welsh gold available to produce a fan! Creating a Cyfan in solid 9 carat gold would have cost more than £400,000, so a one-off special build with gold plating was produced for an undisclosed cost.
The customer was delighted with the result, and the exclusive nature of this piece, and felt that it blended beautifully with the rest of his gold bathroom.
Nuaire’s marketing director Andy Mudie commented: “It was a great honour to be able to produce this hugely special fan, but it’s not something we are looking to be part of our range. We can pull out all the stops for special occasions though. Watch this space.”
