Ron Rezek

Ron Rezek designed the world's first contemporary-styled ceiling fan, the Stratos, in 1986. But his list of accomplishments in the design world is long and varied, from lifeguard equipment to contemporary lighting. In 1997, Ron started The Modern Fan Co. in Ashland, Oregon, which produces and sells only contemporary ceiling fans.

His ceiling fans have been widely used in hotels, restaurants, retail and institutional applications, and all types of residential projects.

Ron Rezek's Philosophy:
"I don't think contemporary means a stark white room. I think it means a tasteful alignment of important elements. There are some designers who copy the Modernists who have come before. But I think 'contemporary' is the pursuit of the new." "People assume that all contemporary fixtures are more functional than traditional ones. That is because contemporary fixtures are easier to clean and they seem to be more utilitarian based on their appearance. And because of their simplicity and lack of ornamentation, they also have an alliance with the industrial look. But all of this doesn't necessarily translate into function. The Modern Fan Co.'s fans are designed to be functional and energy efficient. This is part of being contemporary and pushing the edge. Energy efficiency is the wave of the future."

Minimalist, functional lighting design for the architectural interior. Ron Rezek believes that, "contemporary is the pursuit of the new". His designs are proof of this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The slim lines of this light make it my number one choice for bath lighting at the vanity mirror. I have specified this light many times when remodeling bathrooms for my clients. The light quality is excellent when using the tube recommended by Rezek. It gives good illumination for tasks like shaving or make up application. I mount it vertically which makes the light come from the side and gives good light without shadows. The slim profile makes for a minialist look at the mirror. I have never had a client ask to return it after it is installed. They do comment negatively on the bare florescent tube look when I present the idea but after installation they say they don't even notice it is there. It just seems to melt away into the background and it gives the best light they have ever had in a bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice looking, we're pleased We needed something very narrow for our small bathroom space and these do the trick. Because they are narrow, they are slightly challenging to install without the back plate (because you have little room for error when drilling for wires and pulling them through the wall). We didn't purchase the diffuser so you can see the metal ring of the lighbulb behind the caps. This doesn't bother us (esp. if you make sure you buy a bulb with silver instead of green) but it is something to consider. Looks nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Five Star Design, Four Star Value Great fixture, simple and unique. Installed 4' length over a large mirror in a small bathroom to great effect. Build quality in aluminum is quite good, except end caps [in chrome] that look [and are] plastic... not sure why it has to retail for so much. Can be wired from both ends, not just the middle. For a bathroom, my lighting designer suggests a warm 3,000K lamp with the highest color index [CRI] you can find for natural skin tones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't meet expectations Ordered the Rezek basic bath strip lighting for a bathroom remodel, from the very limited description and almost non-existent pictures I felt I had found a good choice, very minimal, a bit pricey but just what I was looking for (I thought). I was particularly interested in their contemporary designer products and was looking forward to receiving a product that reflected the quality and workmanship I couldn'€™t find locally. After palcing the order we received an Email telling us it would be 4 weeks before we received our purchase, ultimately it took almost two weeks to arrive, free shipping though. When I opened the box I thought there was something missing. The lighting fixtures looked more like overpriced shop lighting than something I would put in a master bathroom, a bare fluorescent bulb in an aluminum frame with cheap plastic chrome end caps, no instructions whatsoever, definitely not what I was looking for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good light, poor installation direction Purchased both 36" and 24" and like the way they look installed, very simple which is hard to find. But the installation was a bear because there were parts missing (adaptor plate on the 36", mounting screws and wire connectors for the 24"), and incomplete and misleading instructions. So while the price on the lights is good, the cost to install is high.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average This light fixture took 12 weeks to arrive after being told 4-6 weeks. I bought it for my new apartment which I renovated changing all of the lighting. This was the most simple fixture and last to arrive. It is a nice light but definitely not worth the wait. I would also say the build quality is average.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic Bath Strip Item # ART-RZK Basicbth VERY VERY SLOW DELIVERY TIME The light fixture and the clip on accessory are quite beautiful, my experience was a lot of frustration in waiting for the delivery of the fixtures which took 12 weeks. The original delivery estimate was 4 to 6 weeks. So order way way in advance if you are interested in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a beautifully simple and elegant fixture. This is the second time we have used the Basic Bath Strip in a bathroom. It is easy to install, and like all things minimalist, it does well in a subdued way what it is designed to do: provide very good light around (or above) a bathroom mirror.

I wish to mount a 24" bath bar. Where is the electrical mount? I need the mount to be toward the top - NOT in the middle. Thanks, Carrie

Asked by: cbender
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. Unfortunately this model does have the electrical mounting hardware located in the middle of the fixture. Sorry about that! If you want to explore some similar alternatives that may not have this limitation, feel free to give us a call and we can go over some potential options with you! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Can this fixture be mounted horizontally above a mirror and can it be dimmed?

Asked by: crad
Hi there, this particular is fixture is only wired to be compatible with vertical applications because of the configuration of the mounting hardware. The designer's intent was to produce a fixture that could be installed on either side of a vanity or bathroom mirror because so many other bath bars in the industry are designed only for horizontal applications above a mirror. We are sorry about that inconvenience. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Does this fixture have a back plate? If so, does it extend past the body of the fixture? I want to mount this next to a wall with no gap between. Is that possible with this light?

Asked by: Shari J
Thanks for your interest in this design. Yes the back plate on this fixture extends the length of the unit, and does not leave any space between the body of the fixture and the wall, allowing the fixture to remain flush with the wall. The plate does not extend past the diffuser on either end, which makes it a rather diminutive design that will not feel too imposing in a space. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you. Thanks for reaching out to us! Parin YLighting Customer Service
