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."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth EVERY Penny! I couldn't be more pleased! These fans are contemporary with clean lines, color, and texture, and they are quiet and extremely well-balanced! I bought six of the ball ceiling fans in the silver/aluminum finish and had them installed with the 3" rod in all of our bedrooms with 8-ft. ceilings. I bought the wall controls; the four different speed selections offer a variety of circulation from extremely minimal to very forceful & powerful. Seven years ago, I bought this fan for our living room and had it installed from a vaulted ceiling with an extremely long extention rod. It continues to work beautifully and efficiently. I recommend these ball fans with no reservations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless modern design & Function at a great price. Had seen but never owned a Modern Fan product. Well worth it. No comparison to what you find in mass retailers. A bit more difficult to install, but any moderate diy-er can do it. I got the incandescent light version and it lights up a dark landing brilliantly.!! Way better than expected. They also ship the stainless ball anyway, which kind of wasteful, but good in case ever want to use w/o the light. Y-Lighting was cheapest as well - went to a local home design store to see in person b4 I bought, they said they would match price until I showed them -- they declined. Very solid and the remote works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One works well, the other appears to have corroded quickly and stopped working altogether within a year of purchase Shortly after having two of these fans installed, one started working only sporadically. Always worked when the electrician was present so I gave up trying to have it fixed and never complained to the seller, thinking it was a wiring problem. It finally stopped working altogether after a year. Final verdict from a new electrician is that although meant as an indoor/outdoor (it's in a porch protected on three sides, screen on the 4th side) it corroded - no wiring problem. Its twin is fine and has been for almost 10 years now. Hate to replace the one that works as two different style fan/lights side by side won't do. Do I try my luck and buy another or keep waiting for the second to die?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

In looking at the remote and wall options for operating the fan I don't see a remote option for fan only.  If I wanted this fan without the light does this mean I'd be restricted to the wall switch or is there a suitable remote?

Asked by: QuintessentiAl
If you are interested in the fan only without the light kit option, the remote listed on the product page will work. The remote handles fan and light functions. If you have additional questions, we are happy to help! Brian, YLighting Customer Support 866-842-6209
