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 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the ball fans. I remodeled my home 5 years ago and ordered 7 ball fans. To this day they are running perfectly, no wobbles and very quiet. I have just completed another remold and ordered 3 more ball fans! Everyone one that sees them wants them! Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works well in a room that has some traditional furniture, and also one with more modern pieces. Love all the Rezek designed lights & fans. This fan is very quiet and efficient, with simple lines that complement different styles of furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek + Functional= Perfect! This fan has been a classic from day one! Suitable for all interiors as it "disappears" into space. Does what a fan does without distraction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, except for one little thing It's an excellent fan. Only thing is, to reverse the direction, you have to physically get up there and toggle the switch. Grrr.

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.

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
