Modern Fan represents a new age in ceiling fans - the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design. Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes.

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."

I would like our fan to hang somewhere between 24" and 36" I am ordering a new  down rod so what length should I get?

Asked by: candy roberts
Hi there! That depends on the fan dimension. You will need to take into consideration the height of the fan body and the fan canopy (dimensions are available on each Modern Fan fan page). From there determine the remaining length needed by subtracting the fan body and canopy measurements from your total desired drop and that will determine how long of a downrod you will need. For example; if you ordered the Torsion Ceiling Fan with a canopy that is 1.2 inches high/deep and a fan body that is 5.5 inches high, you will want to take advantage of the 17 inch downrod that comes with the fan for a 24 inch drop. Or, if you still want a 36 inch drop, you will have to decide between the 24 inch downrod that will actually give you a drop of 31 inches or the 36 inch downrod that will give you a drop of 41.5. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a Product Specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.

What is the diameter of these rods? Most rods have an outside diameter of 3/4", and I bought a fan from Ylighting that requires a 1/2" diameter rod.... Thanks!

Asked by: thomewing
Hi there! The Modern Fan Downrods are 3/4" in diameter. This downrod is designed to be used with a Modern Fan Company or Period Arts Fan and fan accessories. We further advise that using any after-market or interchanging multiple manufacturers Ceiling Adapters and Downrods may void the individual manufacturers’ product warranties. Modern Fan along with all of our featured Fan companies sells their own combinations of downrods and ceiling adapters. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you. Thanks for reaching out to us! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service

Hi, Do these rods fit the Cirrus Ceiling Fan? Thanks, Ed

Asked by: Remod
Certainly! All Modern Fan Downrods fit any Modern Fan models that require down rods. All of our fan vendors offer downrods for their fans. It is not ever recommended to mix and match vendor fan accessories as they may not fit securely and can void the warranty. While we offer most additional downrod options through our site, some of our fan manufacturers still require them to be added as a special order. Special order requests can be easily made by simply working with one of our Product Specialists. They are more than happy to go over all of the illuminating options with you and help you find the combination that suits your lighting needs! Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209.

I own 2 of these fans. Now putting a 3rd fan on covered porch. Sloped ceiling.The point where the fan will hang is 140" (11'8") high. How long should the downrod be? My instinct was that the fan blades should be about 104" (8'8") above the floor.

Asked by: GreenHillBeach
Hi there! You should leave at least 8' clearance, so 8'-8" will be excellent clearance for your porch. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service
