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 Fits perfectly I haven't even installed it yet and I am already very happy with this ceiling fan. It helped to read that it was very quiet in other reviews and I am expecting it to be so. In any case, I like what I see. The finish is very nice and the craftsmanship is exceptional. The Altus fan was one of the few fans that came with an option of 36 inch fan blades. The website did not recommend a smaller blade but I am very happy with the look for my tiny house. A larger fan blade would overwhelm the space. I have always liked all of Ron Rezek's designs and am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy about this purchase! Love this fan. True to the advertising, it doesn't wobble AT ALL and it's nice and quiet. The high speed is really powerful. We dont have a/c but tis fan keeps the (small) house nice and cool and refreshing. Installation was straightforward and easy except for screwing the motor to the cover but once you zen in on the task, it happens and if this is the price for a non-wobbling fan then I'll surely take it. All parts feel sturdy and solid, it's mostly metal. I got the white fan and it blends in perfectly with imy 1927 bungalow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Contemporary Style We were looking for updated metallic ceiling fans with contemporary, modern styling, yet without an extremely modern edge. This fan met our requirements, yet when we installed the fan, we were really pleased with the quality of the brushed aluminum. The brushed finish has a high-quality luster that adds a warmth to the room. The extension rods and ceiling caps are made of the same aluminum as the base: outstanding quality. (The blades are painted wood). We have two of these fans and plan to install a third one. Our installer said it was the easiest ceiling fan to install out of the fans he has installed to date. Only problem was that the control was 4 = low speed, 3= med, 2=med, 1 = high speed. Order a separate control if the speed configuration is an issue for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Design winner, Less is more..... The aluminum finish 3 blade Altus fan came with good instructions & took about 45" to install/replace. Be sure to attach the blades to the body before the final ceiling mounting. The fan is trim, well constructed and aesthetically vrey nice for those seeking a more modern design. It is a perfit fit for our newly remodeled Zinish bathroom. High marks! FYI You will need a magnetic phillips head screwdriver to insert the fan blade screws into the rather hard to access screw holes. oOtherwise a very simple install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from clean design & works well got the model with 42" blades in a bedroom with 9' ceilings. standard 4 position wall switch control, no light. wanted very clean and unobtrusive design. originally ordered a Velo but the housing design & 50" blades were too big & bulky. Altus comes with 36" & 42" blades and the flatter design makes it less obtrusive. the shorter extension holds the fan at a good distance from the ceiling. fan turns very quietly at the lowest speed setting. don't love the shape but overall very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely fell in love with this fan as it was being installed! What a beautiful fan you make! It is sleek and the metal is perfect for my mid-modern 1955 home I just bought. The installation was relatively easy for the electrician. When my home is finished I know there will be alot of wonderful comments on this fan. Unlike most others I have seen, this fan has a sense of style...although minimal, it is every ounce of classic. I just love the Atlas fan I purchased. Delivery was timely and the item was very well packed. I thank you ever so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fan, great for low ceilings This is our second Modern Fan (we also have a Lapa hugger). These fans are very high quality, quiet, and -- of course -- stylish. We installed the Altus on a low (~8'), moderately sloped (22 degrees) ceiling and it looks and performs perfectly. The blades on this model are closer to the ceiling than many "hugger" fans, but it still moves a lot of air. Also very easy to install with simple, clear instructions. Very happy with our fans... we'll be buying a third soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the fan. Get long blades. We love the look of the fan and it was comparatively easy to install. After reading a kitchen review and eyeing the fan in our old bedroom, I mistakenly ordered the short blades and the fan looks comically stubby. I have now ordered the long blades (which you can order here separately) will be glad when they arrive. Also note that the wall control wires so that '4' is slow and '1' is fast, which feels backwards. Its just he way it is. Other than that, we are happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy on designer ceiling fans I'm a big fan of the Modern Fan Co. ceiling fans and have purchase 2 already. For our new home in West Palm beach we needed another 2 for the patio and living room. Before I would have to go through expensive reseller. I did an online search and stumbled onto YLighting and was amazed with the pricing they offered on the same fans. I purchased 2 fans and have been please with the price, follow through, web site and ease of purchase online. I wish I knew earlier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really attractive fan that silently goes from a gentle breeze to a windstorm. As my electrician installed the speed control switch for this fan he was awed by the power at the highest setting. Said he'd never seen a fan move so much air, and I bought the smallest size. I need the lowest speed most of the year for air circulation in a sunroom filled with orchid plants. but when the heat of summer comes, I know I'll be able to cool the room effectively as well. Plus, its a nice, neat modern design that will be appreciated if its ever off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Altus ceiling fan is attractive, appropriately functional an a good value. The fan arrived 3 1/2 days after I ordered it. I was impressed. Installation was done by my electrician with my assistance. It went together easily and quickly. Best of all, it worked perfectly from the moment we turned it on. No balancing was required. This implies good quality control. The appearance is sleek and contemporary. I put it in my music room as a upgrade to an existing fan that made too much noise. This fan is quiet. I'm going to buy three more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fan, good price! I replaced a kitchen fan with the Altus fan so it would match the stainless steel appliances. The fan looks great -- sleek and modern, and it is very quiet yet very powerful. The price was a bit steep, but there aren't many aluminum fans on the market. The variety of blade lengths was a big plus, since cabinet doors necessitated under-40" blades. Installation was pretty straightforward, with clear descriptions and pictures. I would highly recommend the fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Altus fan has a very clean appearance and was easy to install. I purchased the Altus fan to replace a fan in my living room. I ordered white to blend in with my ceiling and it has a great unobtrusive appearance. The fan came with clear assembly and installation instructions, which made hanging it very easy. The wall switch was also easy to install. The fan has a great, clean, modern look that no other company has been able to pull off. Will definitely recommend to friends and purchase more for other rooms in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice fan(s) I bought 3 of these. They arrived very well packaged and they were straightforward to fit, helped by them not being too heavy. They are an attractive modern fan and I have no complaints at all. I also bought an Aurora Hugger fan, also from the Modern Fan Company, which is a nice match to the Altus but a little more awkward to fit. I find the Altus with the light option to be very odd looking and the Aurora is a more attractive alternative!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a fancy looking fan!!! So sick of all the products at the Big Box stores. No imagination whatsoever and something a builder would throw in a home that he/she does not have to live in. I was so excited to see that Ylighting carried products from 'Moden Fan Company' and even happier that the product was cheaper than some retail outlets. The 2 fans look fantastic in my somewhat traditional home...which just proves you don't have to stick to one style. I love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! We ordered this fan (without the light option) for our bedroom. Installation was quick (for us, anyway, since we had an electrician install this fan and another lighting fixture that day), and the fan itself is wonderful. Not only does it work very well, but it really looks good--unobtrusive, with clean lines. I've always hated how ceiling fans look and resisted getting this one, but I'm totally sold now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fan! Although it is often difficult to visualize a product through a picture on the internet, this particular fan is handsome and beautifully made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great sales, great service! I shopped for this product before I decided to buy from YLighting. The sales rep was a master at consultative selling -- extremely helpful, providing specific advice on both blade size and extension rod length, questions two other on-line vendors couldn't answer. The product arrived promptly...until my electrician installs them, I won't be able to say everything is perfect, but so far, so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ceiling fan in form and function... This is my second Altus fan, so I now have one in my living room and bedroom. As an architect, I'm very critical of aesthetics and details, and I can truthfully say this is a high quality product. The price is certainly fair for the quality, so you won't be unsatisfied. I had to use the balancing kit to level both fans, but it was relatively simple. Easy to install... overall great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We bought this fan in addition to 2 other Altus fans we own. They are highly stylish, quite and put out a lot of air. We've had the older ones for almost 3 years and they are on constantly. We've had no problems and recieve a ton of compliments. We are very happy with our purchase and completely impressed with Ylighting's timely delver and free shipping. Would HIGHLY recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fan is beautiful and functional We bought the white version of this fan in a 42-inch. Very nice to be able to get the blade sizes you need. Perfect for a small room. The white is subtle and modern. It's stealthy quiet. So much better than that horrible, squeaky, Home Depot 1980s brass-accented thing that we replaced. We researched prices and found the lowest here. Want to buy another for different room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb design and performance I love the clean, well-designed look of this fan. We installed two -- one in our bedroom in white and the other in silver in the family room, both of which have high ceilings. Besides the appearance, the performance of the fans at all three speeds has been excellent, easing our past problems with heat build-up in these rooms. The fans are also quiet, an important factor.
Date published: 2012-06-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is very attractive, although the control switch makes a noise and we are now seeking professional help to determine if this product works. Looks are good, we are having trouble installing and getting the switch and remote supplied to work. We are now resorting to a professional electrician for installation assistance and I am fearful that the good looks might become an expense burden for us. The question we are asking ourselves; as I type these comments, does this fan even function, in spite of the looks.

Fan was packed well, and looks like the description posted. Will purchase from this business again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ALTUS fan looks great, works beautifully, and is very quiet. Strong recommendation. ALTUS fan arrived on time. We hired a handyman to install it. Time required was five hours, due to new wiring in our old house. Fan works perfectly. Air distribution is "just right" gentle. Light is bright enough for breakfast room reading or computer usage. In-wall controller is a gem. We recommend this fan for its looks and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, works great, priced great! I purchased a Ron Rezek lamp more than 25 years ago because it looked and worked great. I still use it regularly and it still looks like it just came off the drawing board. So I hoped this fan would have the same great design and quality. I have not been disappointed. This fan works and looks great in our raised ceiling bedroom. It was easy to order and arrived promptly with excellent packaging. Although it is "Made in China" the materials are substantial, parts fit together well and the instructions are clear. There was only one tricky point in the installation. Standing on a ladder, with the fan above you, it is challenging to align the four screws that mount the rotor because access is obscured. I found that by holding one screw in the rotor while lifting it with one hand, I could align the rotor and use my other hand to screw in a second screw. Once you have the two screws in place the remaining pair are easy. Kudos to Ron Rezek once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did not use the product. It was for a customer. I would like to thank your customer service dept. for the most professional and courteous of care. Also, I was unable to find this fan in other lighting sites I often use and was delighted to see you have it at a reasonable price. Have already recommended you to my sister in law and will be sure to buy from ylighting in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design, well engineered I have installed four Altus ceiling fans of various sizes in my home, engineering office in California and also apartment in NYC. Installation is straight forward and the fans operate very well. I find the clean and unobtrusive modern design to be the best feature. My last fan purchase from YLighting and I was very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We bought this fan in addition to 2 other Altus fans we own. They are highly stylish, quite and put out a lot of air. We've had the older ones for almost 3 years and they are on constantly. We've had no problems and recieve a ton of compliments. We are very happy with our purchase and completely impressed with Ylighting's timely delver and free shipping. Would HIGHLY recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fan is beautiful and functional We bought the white version of this fan in a 42-inch. Very nice to be able to get the blade sizes you need. Perfect for a small room. The white is subtle and modern. It's stealthy quiet. So much better than that horrible, squeaky, Home Depot 1980s brass-accented thing that we replaced. We researched prices and found the lowest here. Want to buy another for different room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb design and performance I love the clean, well-designed look of this fan. We installed two -- one in our bedroom in white and the other in silver in the family room, both of which have high ceilings. Besides the appearance, the performance of the fans at all three speeds has been excellent, easing our past problems with heat build-up in these rooms. The fans are also quiet, an important factor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is very attractive, although the control switch makes a noise and we are now seeking professional help to determine if this product works. Looks are good, we are having trouble installing and getting the switch and remote supplied to work. We are now resorting to a professional electrician for installation assistance and I am fearful that the good looks might become an expense burden for us. The question we are asking ourselves; as I type these comments, does this fan even function, in spite of the looks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fan, great price! Shipping time was excellent. Product was as expected, and at an extremely competitive price. Although we haven't installed the fan yet, (we are building a new home), I was extremely satisfied with the transaction and delivery of this product. Fan was packed well, and looks like the description posted. Will purchase from this business again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ALTUS fan looks great, works beautifully, and is very quiet. Strong recommendation. ALTUS fan arrived on time. We hired a handyman to install it. Time required was five hours, due to new wiring in our old house. Fan works perfectly. Air distribution is "just right" gentle. Light is bright enough for breakfast room reading or computer usage. In-wall controller is a gem. We recommend this fan for its looks and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, works great, priced great! I purchased a Ron Rezek lamp more than 25 years ago because it looked and worked great. I still use it regularly and it still looks like it just came off the drawing board. So I hoped this fan would have the same great design and quality. I have not been disappointed. This fan works and looks great in our raised ceiling bedroom. It was easy to order and arrived promptly with excellent packaging. Although it is "Made in China" the materials are substantial, parts fit together well and the instructions are clear. There was only one tricky point in the installation. Standing on a ladder, with the fan above you, it is challenging to align the four screws that mount the rotor because access is obscured. I found that by holding one screw in the rotor while lifting it with one hand, I could align the rotor and use my other hand to screw in a second screw. Once you have the two screws in place the remaining pair are easy. Kudos to Ron Rezek once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did not use the product. It was for a customer. I would like to thank your customer service dept. for the most professional and courteous of care. Also, I was unable to find this fan in other lighting sites I often use and was delighted to see you have it at a reasonable price. Have already recommended you to my sister in law and will be sure to buy from ylighting in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design, well engineered I have installed four Altus ceiling fans of various sizes in my home, engineering office in California and also apartment in NYC. Installation is straight forward and the fans operate very well. I find the clean and unobtrusive modern design to be the best feature. My last fan purchase from YLighting and I was very satisfied.
