Design by Ron Rezek.
The Gusto incorporates a series of stepped transitions from the top and bottom to it's widest band at the center. Symmetry, balance, and continuity come to mind when describing this design. As with most Rezek designs, the Gusto is an investigation into the relationship of simple geometries. The result is a fan that is interesting but not distracting, unique but familiar.
Gusto is made of die-cast aluminum and offered in either a gloss white powder coat or bright nickel plated finish. The blades are a plywood laminate with a gloss white coating or metallic aluminum paint, choose 56" or 46" blade span (overall diameter). The optional light kit provides ambient lighting in your choice of halogen or compact fluorescent lamping.
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.
Includes 4", and 14" downrods for 14" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The Gusto fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adaptor (sold separately).
Material(s): Die-cast aluminum with plywood laminate blades

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:
Modern Fan Company
Modern Fan Company. Consciously cool.
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. The unique ceiling fan styles of Modern Fan represent a new age in ceiling fans — the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design (you won't find any wicker or flowery fans here!).

We were trying to build a more modern contemporary styled home. This fan really gave the room a contemporary statement. We have 10' ceilings and this fan really looks great. We also enjoy how quiet the fan is. We have put the Gusto in the living room and the Velo in both bedrooms. Very sharp looking!!

Stylish and Makes the Room
Purchased this fan along with remote control and no lighting. The remote control is great since I can operate my other fan with it. However, you do need to order another receiver. This fan is great for a bigger room with high ceilings. It really cools things down fast in the desert!

Ceilings fans are great
We bought these ceiling fans for a change to a more contermporary look in a 40 year old home. We bought 4 Gusto's for the house and they all look and installed beautifully. I would definitely get more fans like this in the future.

Gusto ceiling fan
We love so much we are purchasing one for our living room and bedroom!

A beautiful fan
There isn't much more to say except that the fan is beautiful. It is the winter so I have only run it a few times to test it out, but it operates at a fairly low sound level with no shaking and moves a lot of air.
My one gripe: the fan speed control starts with the fastest speed on the bottom and the slowest on the top. This is backwards to me! It really isn't a big deal, just a minor gripe.

Great design, fantastic quality
This is our second product from the fan company. Both of them are classic designs and very well constructed.
Our house is 70 years old and only one wire (hot) comes to the switch) so we installed the fan with the remote. It works great. The remote remembers the last setting (Light or fan and speed). So we can still use the wall switch. The remote sensor is pretty big and the pictures are not very clear how it is supposed to fit during installation.

It's a beauty!
The sleek design, quiet and smoothly running fan adds a lot to our environment.
We are happy to have chosen this unit, it suits our needs and taste very well. The price also was very much in line with others we considered.

Very cool fan and very fast delivery
This is a great fan, clean and modern but also looks really cool. I ordered this fan one morning and it arrived 2 days later, it was that quick.
Y Lighting have once again met all my expectations.

AWESOME Fan. AWESOME Customer Service.
The fan is beautiful. Very quiet operation and moves a lot of air. Installation was easy. I have the light kit with the CFL light. It provides good, soft ambient lighting. The remote is a must. I absolutely love it. Also, the light dome cracked when I was installing it. I called YLighting and they had a replacement shipped out immediately. I couldn't have been happier with the customer service. All in all, I am extremely pleased with the Gusto Fan and YLighting.

Q: Is the remote wiring/receiver built into the fan, or does it require that a secondary unit be stuffed into the ceiling mount box?
A: The remote control receiver for Modern Fan Ceiling fans is placed in the ceiling support bracket of the fan, which is then covered by the canopy — it does not go in the actual junction box, so the receiver is below the ceiling.
