The study of design weighs heavily on the patterns found within human behavior. Learning how to create masterful design assumes the use of instinctual and subconscious reactions as well as playing to the positive experiences people want to have, without them even knowing they want it. Good design is emotionally resonant, it speaks past the drudgeries of the every day and into the unspoken desires deep within. And anyone who has experienced good design knows it truly feels that poetic. But intentioned beauty is not well received if it is not well made, useful and in the modern age, innovative. We want change and we want creative ways to solve old problems.
Establishing these qualities is all intermingled and dependent upon each other. Obscurity is effective at creating unforgettable design when it is placed strategically. Koolfog’s high-pressure, pure water fog effects rely on the strength of the imagination. The memory is a fickle master. It will project unto existing situations based on previous experiences, filling in details that aren’t really there. As adults, our minds have lost much of the elasticity of the imaginary; however, Koolfog specializes in invoking these old childhood habits by masterfully integrating fog effects into any design. We reach past the mundane to speak to the days of fairy tales and ferocious dragons.
Applications of high-pressure, pure water fog effects are not new, but the applications for fog are. Koolfog’s Research & Development Department spends countless hours adjusting and testing new enhancements to keep up with the innovative pace of today. This work is never unnoticed when we have completed complicated designs or installed sophisticated fog effects systems. Creative and innovative problem solving techniques are what drive the motivations within Koolfog.
At the end of the day it is about authenticity, endurance and usefulness. And the usefulness of fog effects is in direct relation of the intended experience of the designer.
Society is slightly weary of claims of authenticity in an age where you can photoshop almost anything. Koolfog uses pure water in order to produce as realistic as possible fog effects that are exactly the same look and feel as natural fog formations. Every single piece of material that we use for each installation, down to the fasteners and fittings, are rated and especially designed for high-pressure applications. Our pumps are designed to outlive your need for them.
Fog to obscure sight is not just about concealment, it’s about creating an atmosphere where imagination and experience meet.
