Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

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).

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 6339.48
  • Watts at high speed = 71.5
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 88.66

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Very modern!

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!!

Modern, sleek,

This is the perfect fan for us. Sleek and follows the clean lines of our new, modern home. You will love it!

Just what I wanted. One of the few fans that you might think doesn't have a light when the light is turned off, which I think really improves a space. Love the wall controls.

quiet fan but dim light

Clean, simple design works well in our older house. Fan is powerful yet quiet. I'm disappointed with how dim the light it- with the cover off, it's a very bright halogen bulb, but the design of the bulb cover blocks most of the lamp's output. Really disappointed in this aspect as we were counting on this to be a whole-room light.

Sleek Modern Fan

Love this fan. Looks like a million bucks and works well. Not easy to get that combo. Very quiet and blades are long an push a lot of air. A bit pricey but if you want a certain look your going to have to pay for it (at least that's what I've realized). Thinking of getting a second for the bedroom.

Fantastic fan! Pushing a lot of air is quiet as a whisper. Looks amazing in our modern living space. Will definitely be getting a second for the bedroom.

Great fan, even better customer support for it

So then....18 foot cathedral ceiling and a dead fan. Somehow I ended up at YLighting pages and Gusto fan was decided upon after much deliberation. Airflow at 6340 CFM sure did help my settling on it. Fan comes tightly packed and protected every each way from Sunday. Installation is a breeze as manual is quite detailed and wires are clearly labeled. I opted for remote control option. Two things to mention; Remote transceiver installation instructions could be better, particularly in how to position it at the ceiling and switching operation of the fan to Reverse cannot be done from the remote control, but by manually flipping a tab at the top of the motor. Neither are show stoppers. Once installed, one thing becomes immediately apparent - this thing is whisper quiet!!! It just spins. And moves a ton of air. The fan which Gusto replaced sounded like a landing Huey chopper.

I called YLighting customer support 3 times - twice at the point of pre-sale and once post-sale. CS reps are totally awesome. Patient, deliberate, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. Let's face it - unless you are in the trades, it's not like you install ceiling fans for living. YLighting folks understand that and have your back, regardless of how silly your question may appear to you.

That said, 5 stars all around. For the fan which runs as quiet as they come, moves a ton of air, no wobble at the end of 24" downrod ( that was my post-sale call - how to balance the fan correctly ) and outstanding look of it on my ceiling. 5 stars for YLigthing's customer support, carrying and free shipping.

Customer Questions:

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.

Q: Can multiple fans be operated from one remote control?

A: For the Modern Fans- as long the fans are fan only and do not include light kits, multiple fans can be operated from one remote. Additional receivers will need to be ordered for each additional fan.
