Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

The Ball fan represents a return to The Modern Fan Company's roots, derived from a minimalist approach to ceiling fan design. A perfect sphere provides visual simplicity while housing all the components required for exceeding the EPA's Energy Star guidelines for air movement efficiency (rating applies to fan only).

The Ball is made of die-cast aluminum and offered in either a gloss white or a hand brushed aluminum finish. The blades are a plywood laminate with a gloss white coating or metallic aluminum paint to match the brushed finish. The optional light kit provides ambient lighting in your choice of halogen or compact fluorescent lamping.

The motor is a high power silicon steel design with 16 poles. These motors are designed for long life and silent running, and are controlled by dual capacitors. The fan speed and the light can be operated by one of several control options. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Includes 3", 6" and 16" downrods for 11", 14" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The Ball fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adaptor (sold separately).

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 5986.55
  • Watts at high speed = 72.4
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 82.69

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."

It's beautiful, and works well.

The Ball ceiling fan is the essence of contemporary modern design, beautifully minimalist so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb, but gorgeous should anyone look up and see it, and it functions like a charm.

Fantastic! Beautiful, silent, powerful.

The design is understated, retro, and sexy. And at the same time moves air silently and powerfully.

Good looking product at a great price

Purchased five of these for a new AZ home. Good quality products came on time--very happy with them.

WOW! Looks better than I thought!

I recently purchased a new house and one of the first things I had to do was remove the two 20-year-old wood fans with brass trim from the living room. I saw the Modern Fan Company Ball fans and new right away they would be great in my living room. The installation instructions were very easy to following and I liked that the fan came with a few down rods, the longest of which fit my needs. The fans are gorgeous, quiet and a real attention getter. They are very modern without the overly industrial look of some other fans. In short they fit my KISS (keep it simple stupid) design style.

Highly recommended.

This fan was just the thing we needed to complete our modern design.

The fan is a good size for a newer home with more open space. I recommend putting a dimmer with this product because the fan moves so fast it's scary. I am extremely satisfied with this product and recommend it highly.

Simply beatiful

I am not a fan of ceiling fans but we needed one! The ball ceiling fan is simple and beautiful and we are very happy with it. We had to go with a remote only, which works great. I just wish that there was an even slower setting for the fan.

We love the style and the working of the fan.

Unfortunately we have not used our fans as yet because we are in the process of remodeling an apartment. However, our son and daughter-in-law have the fans and we love them. They look and work great.

This is my second Modern Fan and I am extremely satisfied with it. It is beautifully designed and works silently - a big plus since this fan is located in my bedroom.

Beautiful and functional- the ideal combination for a consumer product.

We looked at all the ceiling fans that are available and found that the Modern fans are the best by all measures. We have not yet installed ours due to the construction schedule. But plan to order more for the next phase of the building project.

Thanks to YLighting for such a competitive price. We'll be back for lighting and more fans.

Great looking Fan!

It took very little time to install, looks great (with maple blades and integrated light) and runs very quiet. No balancing was necessary.
The handheld remote work does a good job - I love that we can dim the light!

Love this FAN!

We remodeled are farmhouse and removed all of the old wood-colored bulky fans and replaced them with this white modern fan and we love it! They blend into the ceiling and are not obtrusive. Everyone loves the sleek, modern design.

Great Fan, Fast Delivery

The Ball Ceiling Fan has quality construction, was easy to install, and blends in very well with the modern decor of my new home. I opted for the silver with 42" blades, the light kit, and the dual light/fan speed adjustment switches and am very pleased with the way that things turned out.

Also, while Modern Fan Company products are available elsewhere, YLighting's prices are among the best; no complaints about their service and quick delivery time either.

Great on my front porch

I had a cheap white ceiling fan on my front porch. Once my house was painted and new door hardware and exterior lighting were installed, the fan looked out of place. I had made several purchases for my new home through Ylighting, and decided to check out their ceiling fan collection. The information on the web site was fantastic, and I was able to order a new fan, at a reasonable price, through Ylighting. It looks great on the front porch. (It works well, too.)

Great contemporary fan

The fan looks great in clean lined interiors. The different blade sizes make it appropriate for large and small rooms. The white fan works well with white ceilings.

Smooth, Clean, Easy

These fans are great. Very quiet, easy to assemble and install, and if you're looking for a sleek, unobtrusive look, the Ball fan is it. I bought 4 of them, and the only reason I gave them a 4 instead of a 5 is that the light globes on two of them arrived cracked. Ylighting gave me amazing customer service in that they shipped out replacements the morning after I reported the problem. Well done! They will look great in any modern, contemporary, or mid-century environment....better without the light kits, but I needed the light.

I love these fans!

I've always wanted these fans after seeing them in Dwell and was happy to find out they are affordable for how much nicer they are than the typical choices at Lowes and Home Depot. Most specialty stores in Austin mark them up a lot more, so ordering them on line worked out the best. The llok and great and work great. No complaints.

Fantastic product for a GREAT price!

I bought and installed this fan a couple of weeks ago an absolutely love it! The fan came with very easy to follow instructions. It took me less than an hour to install. The fan makes an elegant addition to any room. I was very suprised by how quiet this fan was....especially for the mount of air in moves.

I get quite a lot of compliments on it...!

Simple. Minimalist. Not just a fan.

I purchased these fans for a new house I'm building in downtown Austin. Modern minimalist simple architecture required the same in appliances, lighting and fans. I was impressed with the YLighting support, I called in to inquire about switches and received excellent advice. In the end, the fans were perfect, the technical support much appreciated and the value was in the service.

Perfect Basic Fan

Its a great fan - we put it in our last apt, and just installed 2 more in a new house. The perfect simple, modern and unobtrusive fan .. works great too.

great new classic

This fan is well priced and dependable. I have used it in very modest to ulta expensive homes. A great bonus is that it is flexible for different ceiling conditions from flat to sloped (without a special mounting bracket).

Love this ceiling fan!

This is a great ceiling fan, very sleek and modern design at an affordable price. I purchased a total of nine for my new house, including 2 for an outdoor screen porch. Wonderful. One stopped working 6 months later. The manufacturer shipped me a new one and sent a shipping label to return the defective one. Couldn't have been easier or more convenient. Very impressed with the customer service. You can't go wrong with this fan.

Great looking contemporary fan.

It's very difficult to find contemporary fans with simple lines. This is a great looking fan without all the fuss. Plus, it's energy star rated for the conscious minded buyer! We have yet to install it, but I can't wait to see it in place and plan on purchasing more Modern Fans for our home in the near future.

Beautiful Fan.

Well packaged. Has not yet been installed as will be done by GC over the summer. Was a little surprised at the faux wood texture on the painted blades of the fan. Cannot yet speak to ease of installation or general quietness.

Beautiful, smooth & quiet. Ylighting excellent to deal with.

Fan is all that was advertised. Ylighting price was lowest I could find, their website had all the info I needed, and the shipping worked fine. The fan came with great instructions and it installed beautifully. Very happy with this fan & am considering getting a second for another room.

Just what we were looking for!

We were looking for ceiling fans to compliment our mid-century modern house and the ball fan was perfect! Easy installation, works great, and gives us the
modern feel we were looking for! We love them! And with the free shipping we
will probably order a couple more in the near future!

Less is more...a contemporary fan, stripped of all gew-gaws; beautiful and functional in every way. Perfect in my ultra modern loft.

I love this fan.

Clean modern lines. Looks amazing and works really well. Easy ordering. Quick free delivery. Clear assembly instructions with photos. It took me about an hour to assemble/install. Few tools required. Used the controller with the wired fan and remote light... very easy to wire myself and works really well. The light even dims.

My only small design complaint is that there is one screw head showing on each of the fan blades. It's minor, but possibly worth noting.

I'd love to order this same fan to replace all of the other fans in my house!

Love the simplicity and quality of this fan.

We have georgian home that was built in 1925, and needed 2 new ceiling fans in our sunroom. I wanted fans that would not be a center of attention, and just "disappear" into the ceiling, and also not look like the contractor grade junk at Home Depot. This fan is great qualilty, has nice clean lines for modern, or more transitional/classic decor, and we are very pleased. They arrived in a timely fashion through ground shipping, and we would order again.

Great Service and Great fan

I normally do not order large items online, but this was well worth it. I was surprised how fast the fan showed up, and it is a great modern accent for my bedroom. After months of searching expensive fixtures, the Ball Ceiling Fan ended up being the perfect fit. Great price too!

Great look, Great Value, Great performance

When we were remodeling our house, my wife and I wanted a fan with a real distinct look. My brother had one of these, and we decided to give it a try. WOW. I was blown away by the look of the fan. The performance was also great. It's quiet, yet powerful. It makes any room feel and look modern. A must buy!!!

Wowie,Zowie! Soft breezes from this fan keep me cool.

This simple modern-style fan fits seamlessly into house styles of many eras. The larger model has silently moved the air on the designer-built screened porch addition to my Arts & Crafts home. During our 24-hour-a-day hot summers, your fan has made the porch comfortable on all but 14 days during the last two summer seasons. This outstanding performance convinced me to order a second smaller model for my currently under-construction petite, independent writing studio. The heat is in the floor and the Ball fan will keep the warm air around me in the winter and cool me in the summer. Yea!

We are very happy with this fan!

The fan is quiet even at the highest setting and creates a terrific air flow at each setting. Is very attractive. We needed the shorter blade for our size room and we are still very happy with the way it looks and performs. We put it in ourselves and the installation was easier than our previous fan. I also want to add that customer service was very helpful when I called with questions, and we ended up with a perfect fan for our room.

Iconic design, great performance

I installed one of these fans in my home office last year, and am installing one in the master bedroom now. The classic design of the fan is obvious, but the build quality is what makes it--very well made and performs just as you would expect.

fabulous fan, quiet operation, easy to install

This fan is great. Love the way it looks with the brushed aluminum. It's very quiet at all fan speeds. At the 2 higher speeds though, it does wobble back & forth a tiny bit, but it's very secure in the ceiling and isn't going anywhere. The separate dimmer control that we bought is great, except it's odd that the "1" setting is full blast, "4" is the lowest speed, and "0" is off.

By:Diana M. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)

Absolutely thrilled with this fan!

Everything from start to finish, was seamless. When I called to ask about the remote vs wall control, the fellow I spoke with recommended the Maestro 7 speed wall's fantastic! We can have the lowest of low and the screaming high without a hitch....this fan works beautifully! We love the look of it and it is super quiet too! This is a 5 star product and Y Lighting gave us 5 star service!

Modern Classic

As a commercial designer and homeowner(this fan went in my home)lighting and accessories are selected after much consideration and research. I read the reviews and the fans are indeed beautiful however I prefer the aesthetics of the fan without the light. However, I bought two of the fans with lights, one in the aluminum to go in my family room/kitchen and a white one to go in the master bedroom. Function before form in this case.
The light is functional and a bonus I just wish they were able to design it rounded. The nice thing is they include both the light and ball case.
We had it installed by a professional electrician so I don't about the ease of installing it yourself but he had no problems.
The fan is a good value. It is made well at a reasonable cost. Its clean lines work in our modern yet aclectic interior. It is quiet and easy to operate. We bought the remote and just have to find it from time to time! I am hoping it cuts down on the A/C this summer with the high cost of fuel.
I have noticed that the place is fresher smelling now that we can move the air.
Y lighting has great prices, is easy to order from, has a wonderful selection, ships quickly, packs well with no damage. What more can you ask for?

Elegant, functional. Good support materials.

I am very pleased so far, with the Ball Ceiling Fan. Visually it is elegantly proportioned. Design wise it is clean, minimal and functional.

I have been waiting for years to purchase this fan and finally needed one. It was worth the wait.

Yes, I will order another Modern Fan from your company.

Modern, clean and simple designed brushed aluminum ceiling fan is controlled by a hand held remote. It arrived on time in good condition, and works exactly as I had hoped. I am thrilled.

Nice Quality

I have purchased many fans, but Modern Fans seem to be one of the best quality for the money. This fan has machined metal finish which is really nice. I think the mark of a great fan is perfectly balanced blades so no wobble is present. This one fails that. This is a manufacturing issue and not design. I haven't had a chance to balance with the kit provided but its not as bad as other fans like an emerson I bought.

sleek design, great performance

I chose this model and manufacturer because of the size and color options and reputation for a quality product. But of course, the biggest reason was for its clean design that works well both with modern and traditional furnishings. And I hate air conditioning, so I needed something that would be cooling and quiet. MFC delivers on all fronts. And YLighting made ordering and receiving it a breezed

Great looking, tons of power

We just had this fan installed yesterday, so I can't speak for how it wears, but so far it's terrific. We put it in our living room, which has double height ceilings. We really needed something that would move the air, and this fan is really powerful. It looks great, and there were no problems with the installation. Two little complaints: why, on a switch with 4 speeds, would 4 be the slowest and 1 be the fastest? Also, the fan, when it's on its highest speed, wobbles a bit. We've got it on the longest rod,which may contribute to the problem. Overall, though, great fan and a great value.

could't be happier

We received our fan promptly from YLighting (not the case with some of the other companies we have delt with in this remodel!) the nice clean lines of the fan have prompted many compliments from thoes who see it. it is nice to have a fan that adds to the beauty of our kitchen. our electrician said we went together very easily, the sign of a well built fan. what i like about it is that it's operation is virtually silent.

Nice, minimalist design, but the quality?,.......not so much!

My husband and I spent many months drooling over the modern fan ads in Dwell and finally decided to purchase the oh so very cool ball fan for every room. We ordered one to make to make sure it was as good as it looked in the glossy magazine. When it arrived we were somewhat dissapointed to discover that it wasn't as slick and beautifully made as it appeared in the ad. The metal on the ball is poorly finished with rough edges and the blades have tacky looking screws showing on the underside. With regards to value for money, this fan is clearly overpriced. Nevertheless, despite it's flaws, it's made itself at home in our bedroom. As for the rest of the house, it's back to the drawing board in search of an alternative.

A Modern Fan that cannot be found at the big box stores

I love the clean design of this fan. We could not find a modern-style fan anywhere that we liked at the big box stores and then we found this one online. It is SUPER quiet when it is running, you hardly know it's on. My only small gripe is that the remote is really lame. You take all of this time making a sharp looking fan and then a janky looking remote comes with it. Otherwise it is awesome!

the fan is functional and beautiful when one omits the lamp

We are very satisfied with the ceiling fan. It would have helped if a non-remote speed control (four speeds) would have been shipped because remote control is in our opinion excessive. Otherwise the fan is very satisfactory and helpful during the hot seadon.

As an European I refused to buy a fan because what I found in shops was ugly. But then I saw this unit at YLighting and bought it at once. It has good design, easy to install (even with the remote control which saves me some extra wirering), works perfect and silent!

We put this ceiling fan and light in our living room / dining room in our split level house. It was easy for me to install and worked perfectly. In addition to the comfort and light, it just looks great in what was a very open and uninteresting space. PS - I am not related to Ron!

The Ball Ceiling Fan is a simple, modern fan that is quiet and does the trick.

I've seen the Ball Ceiling Fan at friends' homes and was always impressed with how quiet it is and the amount of air it generates. It has 4 different speed settings, making it easy to get just the right amount of air flow desired in a room. The look of the fan is modern and has that classic look that really makes a statement in a room!

True Contemporary Design at its best.

True Contemporary Design at its best ! This Fan works like a charm and is so silent. The $ 8.00 Wall Mounted Fan Speed Control is excellent value for money too.

Well Priced, Well Designed ...

The fan arrived sooner than expected, and YLighting made the ordering (including options) easy and fast. Well detailed installation instructions - this fan was a pleasure to install and operate. As an architect, I never thought I would spec a ceiling fan - especialy for my own house - but this is simple and exceptional.

Great design, high output, silent operation.

I knew this fan's design would look great. But most important, it moves more air than any ceiling fan I have seen. In addition, the perfectly smooth blades, including the seamless way they fit into the hub, result in this fan making absolutely no noise. I found it very easy to install. Finally, fast shipping and a great price from YLighting made this a superb purchase.

The fan is quiet and looks great!

We bought three. One with a light. Not completely thrilled with the light, but the fans overall are super. Very cool.

Excellent fan for the money

Attractive ceiling fans are very hard to find - this one in my opinion is attractive and well proportioned
This fan is very well made - installation was straightforward - operation has been flawless.
Two small complaints - paddles are wood painted to appear as aluminum, was expecting aluminum blades - however this does not seem to be an issue and one would not be able to tell the difference
Fan operating switch is not as smooth as it possibly could be - however it is very intuitive and operates well
I would recommend this fan

Beautiful, quiet

I purchased two Ball fans, one silver and one white with a light. Both have beautiful, clean lines and are very quiet. The halogen light looks great with the white fan, and it lights up my 10 x 10 room. I'm a novice with ceiling fans—this is my first experience—and I am very happy. However, I will likely install a second fan in my 14 x 16 foot room, as I'm finding it needs more circulation than one fan can provide (it's adjacent to an open kitchen). Someone installed the fans for me, but I had many questions,, and Ylighting was incredibly helpful with regard to technical and customer support.

1 out of 2

I ordered 2 ball ceiling fans. One arrived perfect, the ball of the other was scuffed. Kudos to ylighting for quickly replacing the ball portion, but that fan suffers from some rocking issues. I'm assuming that this can be fixed with the blade weights provided in the box, but I have not gotten that far just yet. The fans do look really, really cool. Nothing like them at Home Depot or Lowes.

Great look at a great price!

The ball ceiling fan looks really sharp in our light-filled master bedroom and style-wise really adds to the look of the room.

Love this fan!

This is our third Ball Fan. We have one (sans light) downstairs, and one each in the bedrooms (one with CF, one with a halogen bulb if I remember correctly). I'm not totally wild about the lighting - the CF is awfully bright for a bedroom (but we wanted the energy efficiency) and I don' like the way the dimmer works on the halogen light (you need to go all the way up in brightness before you can scale it back down, which isn't ideal for a bedroom either) but we love the efficiency, the design, and how quiet these fans are.
Obviously, we would buy another in a heartbeat! And wouldn't think of buying from anywhere other than YLighting.

The modern ball ceiling fan is high quality and very cosmetically pleasing.

The fan was very easy to install and all of the components are made of high quality materials. I was very pleased with the craftsmenship of the product and the delivery time was quick.

These fans look great and work equally well.

I first purchased this fan for my home in Los Feliz. I was so pleased with how great it looked and how well it worked (very quiet operation), I just purchased 2 more for my home in Palm Springs. When I called Y Lighting to place the order for the 2 additional fans - about a year after the initial purchase - the sales person remembered me and my 1st order. Wow, what customer service!

Great Product!

We purchased this fan for our bedroom and not only is it beautiful to look at but it is completely silent when it is on. YLighting provided excellent service and we received our fan rather quickly.

Very Happy With Our Purchase...

Very nice product - well engineered, nice build quality, quiet, simple to install. First impression is very positive. The design is getting a bit ubiquitous, but the reason it's so popular is not just because of its aesthetics. Based upon this experience, I'd highly recommend Modern Fan Co products...

Customer Questions:

Q: Is the remote wiring/receiver built into the fan, or does it require that a secondary unit be stuffed into the ceiling mount box?

A: The remote control receiver for Modern Fan Ceiling fans is placed in the ceiling support bracket of the fan, which is then covered by the canopy — it does not go in the actual junction box, so the receiver is below the ceiling.

Q: Can multiple fans be operated from one remote control?

A: For the Modern Fans- as long the fans are fan only and do not include light kits, multiple fans can be operated from one remote. Additional receivers will need to be ordered for each additional fan.
