The Senzu fan with its contemporary design is a magical object. It’s functional, it’s breezy, it folds up and it has two types of opening, one more explicit and one more discreet. It is made of laser-cut double slat rods in smoked oak, olivato ash or sapelly wood. The sheets are joined by a ribbon. The rod is grouped by means of a brass shaft. * The name Senzu comes from Japan. Tradition has it that during the reign of Emperor Tengi, a resident of Tamba, after carefully watching the flight of bats, conceived of making fans with leaves joined by a ribbon. In time these fans were called Senzu.
