From the Matthews-Gerbar Collection by Matthews Fan Company, 1963.

Few designs can match the timeless and sophisticated aesthetics of the Duplo Dinamico rotational ceiling fan, manufactured since 1963. Though many have tried to reproduce this unique design, all have proven to be of lesser quality and durability. The Brazilian made fan bodies are made at individual work stations, not mass produced on assembly lines; each fan is hand assembled by one person.

Comes with 10" standard downrod. Alternate downrod lengths of 5", 20", 30", 48" or 72" is available for flexible configurations. The Duplo Dinamico fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling of 29° with Matthew Fan Company's sloped canopy option. Features Gauge Steel blades. Wood blades for the Duplo Dinamico can be found here: Duplo Dinamico Ceiling Fan - Wood Blades

The motor head can be positioned along a 180-degree arc for optimum air movement; the greater the angle of the motor to the horizontal support rods, the faster the axial rotation. A slow, controlled axial rotation is achieved by both motor head position and fan blade speed.

Available in Black, Bronze, Bronzette, Brushed Nickel, Polished Chrome, Polished Copper, Brushed Brass, Brushed Copper, Black Nickel, Polished Brass, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Light Purple, Yellow, Light Green, Dark Green, Orange, Red, and White finishes.
