In the late 1980s, Ron Rezek was hired by a ceiling fan company to conceive a modern design. “At that point, ceiling fans had never really been a design object,” Rezek explained in The New York Times. “Most of the fans on the market were reproduction Victorian fans, and if a guy had a Mies van der Rohe apartment in Chicago, he probably wasn’t going to put one in there.” Rezek’s design was a hit. He went on to create a state-of-the-art collection of sleek, efficient and durable wobble-free fans, and The Modern Fan Company was born. The biggest leap in his fan construction is a one-piece rotor that promotes stable blade mounting, replacing the separate bolt-on blade brackets still widely used in lesser designs today. Further eliminating even faint traces of wobble, the blades are meticulously manufactured to a weight differential of no more than a gram. Capable of moving thousands of cubic feet of air per minute, these fans suit all seasons, with a reverse switch mounted on the fan body that keeps warm air circulating during colder months. Each can be controlled with a convenient (included) remote. Cirrus (1999) has three blades and can be operated at multiple speeds. Cannot be installed on pitched ceilings or suspended by down rods. Remote stores in a wall-mounted cradle and runs on two AAA batteries (included). Assembly required. ETL Listed to UL Standards for use in damp sheltered outdoor locations. Bulb (included): 17W LED module. Made in Taiwan.
