The Modern Fan Company Story
The Modern Fan Company was founded in 1997 by industrial designer Ron Rezek in Ashland, Oregon. It was the first (and to this day, only) company of its kind: a designer and manufacturer of contemporary ceiling fans. It was established based on the overwhelming success of Rezek's 1986 design of the Stratos Ceiling Fan, which did away with all ornate brass scrollwork and blade irons standard up until that time.
The demand for such streamlined design has since led to a comprehensive--and growing--collection of modern ceiling fans.
Why We Love Modern Fan Company
Even in still photographs, Modern Fan ceiling fans seem to be in motion, with an aerodynamic look suitable to any contemporary setting. More than just a clean look, the "pure geometry" of these fans is also supremely functional. The minimum of superfluous details reduces drag, making these fans streamlined in every sense of the word. The Modern Fan Company is also making these fans even more efficient with the inclusion of energy efficient lighting kits, and functionally versatile in modern spaces with regular and hugger versions and a range of control options.
A Fun Fact About Modern Fan Co.
While specializing only in contemporary ceiling fans, Modern Fan Company embraces all "modern" design, regardless of the exact era. In doing so, they created their affiliate Period Arts Fan Company, recreating modern American and European design movements of the early 20th century.
