Icon: Sir James Dyson

From bag­less vacs to blade-less fans

Australian T3 - - CONTENTS - SIR James Dyson

IT’S TIME AGAIN TO HAIL TECH’S BRIGHT­EST SPARKS, those whose ex­cit­ing new ideas and back-of-a-nap­kin sketches have not just tick­led our aes­thetic fancy but shaped the way we con­sider and con­sume our play­things. And there are few more in­stantly recog­nis­able tech rein­ven­tors than Sir James Dyson.

For a man whose first de­sign was a wheel­bar­row (he re­placed the wheel with a far more use­ful ball), Dyson has gone on to laser-fo­cus his de­signs on the do­mes­tic, turn­ing his in­no­va­tive eye to vac­u­ums, hand-dry­ers, wash­ing ma­chines, fans and taps, with each in­ven­tion boast­ing a space-age aes­thetic that hints tempt­ingly at the smart­ness of the tech at work in­side.
