As an industrial designer and business entrepreneur, Ron Rezek's niche is the new. After all, his long and storied design career has subsisted on his creation of hundreds of contemporary products, including everything from lifeguard equipment to lighting and modern ceiling fans. All Ron Rezek designs minimize unnecessary details to maximize efficiency and the beauty of "pure geometry."
Rezek's design career began in 1970 with a bright orange plastic water rescue can designed for professional life guards (and still in popular use today; think "Baywatch"). After that stunning success, he established Ron Rezek Lighting in 1978 to design and manufacture contemporary lighting fixtures (selling the company to Artemide
In 1986, Rezek almost literally turned the ceiling fan world on its head when he designed the first truly contemporary ceiling fan, the Stratos Ceiling Fan
. The sleek metal fan did away with traditional ornamentation and blade irons. Other similarly modern, stream-lined designs followed, leading to Rezek establishing The Modern Fan Company
, still the only company in existence to manufacture only contemporary fans. To this day, Ron Rezek continues to innovate with his designs for Modern Fan Company
and its sister, Period Arts Fan Company
(with ceiling fans based on 20th century American and European design movements). If you don't see the Ron Rezek product you want, please Contact Us
