Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

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 It Disappears! Modern Fan was recommended by my architect for our kitchen remodel. He recommended I get one of the ceiling hugger models, to get it in white, and get the smaller blade length in order for the fan to disappear into the ceiling. And it worked. Since we have a Craftsman kitchen I was thinking I had to buy old fashioned looking fan with a long drop and dark wood blades. This solution was waay better! And way more affordable. I'm guessing that in 5 years the fan will still be quiet even at the highest speed whereas the last big drop fan I got really made noise as it wanted to "airplane" because of the long drop. The only thing I didn't like about the fan was the simple switch I choose with numbers 1, 2, 3, 4. I thought 1 was the slowest, and 4 the fastest. Nope... 1 is the fastest and 4 the slowest. I'll adjust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new Ball Hugger blows all your problems away No more hot lonely nights! Everyone needs a Ball Hugger. Directions are hard to understand, but you can't have it all for $300, just have patience and prepare for bliss. I have a couple of Balls already but something was missing until I added the Hugger model. Why didn't they think of this before? The Ball Hugger has really taken the stress of my two Ball models, allowing complete air circulation. Ironic? Maybe. But it's not all about blowing hot air. This fan really brightens your room with its powerful CFL. Buy a Ball Hugger, they really took Balls to another level. It's just the right touch I needed in my bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it, beautiful design! The design is far more beautiful than it appears in the website image. Excellent, sleek modern design. Installation was somewhat more difficult than one would hope. Manufacturers instructions could be simpler, pictures are not easy to read. Great fan, so I purchased another, same model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for rooms with lower ceilings Very quiet but beautiful fan. The remote control nicely controls the speed, which goes from a nice lull to a high speed which feels good in the summer time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handsome, powerful and quiet I just ordered four of these fans for my new house; I had two in my former house. They look great, create a lot (or a little) breeze, depending on your needs, and don't shake or make any noise. I have two with a light and two without. The light is very nice, compared to most lights with fans. The remote option is also a treat.

Is there a picture of this fan with maple blades?

Asked by: Blulime
Hey there! So sorry that we do not have any pictures of the maple blades for the Ball Hugger Ceiling fan readily available on our site. We receive all of our images from the manufacturer. Our Web team is working to correct and update this. In the mean time I recommend checking out the Torsion Ceiling Fan (http://www.ylighting.com/modern-fan-torsion-ceiling-fan.html ) which features the same Beautiful Maple Finish! 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. Thanks for contacting us! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service

Can this ceiling fan use LED lights?

Asked by: elise67
Hi there! These are for use with Fluorescent or Halogen bulbs. If you can find equivalent replaceable LED bulbs with the same base required for your preferred lamp kit, then you certainly can use LED lamping options in these. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else. Thanks for reaching out! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service
