A new take on Modern Fan's classic Ball fan, this hugger configuration is great for use in low-ceiling environments. The teardrop shape makes a graceful transition from the fan to the ceiling, conveying a sense of fluidity and connectedness to the space 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 and are available with 42" or 52" blade span. The optional light kit provides ambient lighting in your choice of halogen or compact fluorescent lamping. Light kits will add 1" to overall height of the fan.

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.

  • 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 I bought 7 fans, the Cirrus is my favorite I went for ceiling fans over air conditioning for many reasons, and my electrician recommended Moden Fans. I bought these models: Ball, Cirrus and Lapa and have the Cirrus installed with a light over my range (on an island in the kitchen). It looks great, works really well, and the light is a godsend. I have remote controls for 4 of the fans, which is mounted on the wall by the light switch, and I love them. The other 3 fans have wall switches. The fans all look well made, very modern, which fits my decor and they move the air extremely well. Who needs air conditioning anyway? These were much less expensive and they get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Option for Our Needs We have looked far and wide for a fan that met our aesthetic needs, along with the height restrictions our ceiling creates. The ball hugger (amazing name) really appeared to be and is the fan for us. We did the 42 inch blades and I think we could have gotten by with the 52 - my husband felt the room was too small. The 42 does really move the air though and looks just fine with the base (I saw other people who mentioned the fan look odd with the smaller blades and I do not agree). We are very happy with the product and the service - looks very high-end and came timely and no damage. Best deal I could find on this fan, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This fan seems very efficient and has a great modern look. We opened the box but did not unpackage all the parts. The fan seems to be of high quality and the design is great. Unfortunately, with living in an 84 year old home with medium height ceilings, we were unable to install the fan and have to return it. We're opting to use floor fans instead. Despite this, we would recommend Y lighting to someone who is looking for a modern ceiling fan for the good product and efficient customer service. Hopefully Y lighting will have some light fixtures we can order for our home. We gave the fan four stars because we did not get a chance to see it operating since we did not install it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean design, easy installation. We spent an unhealthy amount of time searching for a fan that didn't look like it came straight from the parlor of a southern debutante circa 1872. Modern Fan Company saved the day. Their selection gave us several modern (not space-age!) models to choose from when looking for a fan that that would fit the low ceilings of our home. The build-quality is superior and installation was straightforward, even for a skills-impaired fella such as myself. Ylighting was also great to deal with. A shipping error in fan blade style was remedied within days, much to my satisfaction. Overall, great product and great service - I'll definitely be dealing with both companies again in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny name, great products We love this fan and wonder how we did without it. Quiet well balanced easy to install by one person thanks to the support cable. We will definitely be buying another one of these within the year for our other room. We bought the two wire control and installation was straight forward. My only gripe about it was that the threading on the mounting plate attached to the ceiling wasn't so good. That coupled with the angle the screwdriver had to turn the screw at you are liable to strip the screw before it goes in all the way. My light kit was also missing three screws to the bezel the glass twists into.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet fan with clean modern design. We bought two 42" fans with halogen lights in white and aluminum finishes. The fan operation is very quiet. The light quality is not the best; it's very white and creates glare without creating much illumination for the room. I also wish it were round to compete the "ball" shape, instead of like a bullet tip. We ended up buying additional 52" blades for the aluminum fan because the proportion seemed really off with the shorter blades. It was not so noticeable on the white fan in a white room so we left that one with the 42" blades. All-in-all, we are happy with our purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are very pleased with this ceiling fan. Six years ago we moved from a large Victorian house in which I had installed several ceiling fans, to an apartment and a cooperative retirement community. Our apartment has very good air conditioning and so–so heating, and we decided that we might improve the situation with a good ceiling fan. We wanted something close to the ceiling, unobtrusive, and quiet. We purchased a Ball Hugger, made by the Modern Fan Company. Even with the discounted price at Y Lighting this is not a cheap fan, but it is well worth the money. Compared to the traditional, older model fans we have used in the past, this is a great improvement. On low speed is very quiet, and even at higher speeds what we mostly hear is the rushing of air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute, works as promised. We got the 42" gloss white Ball Hugger for my sons' bedroom. It looks really great: the 42" is nice, proportionally, for their small room, and the smaller blade size makes for cuter proportions in terms of the fan's overall look (good for a youth room). I don't know if it's a function of the fan's motor, or just because it's such a small space (the room is about 10x12'), but it creates some really strong wind!! We got the compact fluorescent bulb to save energy. Not terribly bright but passable as the main light source in the small room.
