Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

The Nimbus incorporates several important innovative mechanical and design features not found in other fans. These features include: a die-cast zinc body which enables the Nimbus to be plated with a nickel finish, an uncluttered canopy with concealed screws, a built-in light, a standard slope ceiling adapter, five blades and a thin down rod design. In addition the Nimbus is the first ceiling fan to use a rotor/blade holder which is placed on top of the fan. This enables easy blade installation from the top and gives plenty of room for a light using either an incandescent or compact fluorescent lamp. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

The Nimbus is offered in a matte nickel or dark bronze finish. Blades may be specified in one of five finishes: nickel, maple, black, white or mahogany. Select 42" or 52" blade span. The Nimbus is powered by a high silicon steel motor incorporating 16 poles and using sealed bearings to insure long life and cool running. The five blades and the balanced rotor give the Nimbus a turbine-like smoothness of operation. Includes 4" and 10" downrods for 18" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods available for alternate heights. The fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately).

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 5485.14

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."

Modern and sleek fan!

We really like the Nimbus fun - it has a great look and looks nice in any room. We also like the remote - it's nice to be able to dim the lights on the fan with it.

Beautiful, clean-looking, design and very easy to install.

I ordered two Nimbus fans and a wall-mount remote after clarifying the wiring options with Pondi at YLighting. The fans, down rods and remote all arrived within days and were in perfect condition. The hardest part of my installation was erecting and balancing on scaffolding to reach the junction box 15 feet in the air. The down rods included extension wiring and the included ceiling mount easily accommodated the 7 x 12 pitch of the ceiling. I have two circuits (three wires) and wired both fans in parallel for control from one remote. The blades and glass dome all assembled with ease and have a gorgeous, clean look! (The included CFL has post-type electrical connections as opposed to the typical screw type, so I may have to order replacements someday from YLighting rather than buy locally.) The fan motor is completely silent and the only sound is the wind blasting down when at full-speed. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of my purchase and will be buying many more fixtures from YLighting as my remodel continues.

Modern Fan Company Makes Great Products

I purchased 2 Modern Fan Company Nimbus fans for our home in Hawaii. I am very pleased with them. I am a big fan of Ron Rezek (Modern Fan Company's founder). The designs are clever and the items are manufactured to high standards. My only regret is that Rezek seems to have abandoned the furniture and lighting side of his business. YLighting gets my highest recommendation. They are responsive, reliable, and ship quickly.

Great Light - Bad Shipping

I have ordered this light before and loved it. This time, the wrong light was delivered and a new one has not arrived when expected.

Fabulous looking ceiling fan!

I have never liked ceiling fans. I always thought they were the ugliest thing... still do... till I bought the Nimbus ceiling fan to replace an existing one in my new home. It looks fabulous. I like the clean look. When it whirls, you don't hear a sound and it does not rock around. The light is nice and bright, but not glaring. I am very pleased and highly recommend this one.

Modern, sleek ceiling fan!

This fan looks absolutely stunning in my home and I will be purchasing more from the same line to place in the other rooms in my home. I have gotten countless complements on it. It's quiet and is balanced well so it doesn't have travel to it when it is placed on the highest speed. Ylighting has great customer service and I received my order quickly.

Clean and Modern

I was looking for a very clean and modern fan for the great room to replace an existing more tradional fan. There is not much out there on the market for clean, well designed ceiling fans beyond The Modern Fan Company. I bought the Nimbus model and am very happy with it - simple, clean design which blends into a more modern motif and functions well and moves alot more air than the more traditional fan it was replacing. Fairly easy to install however the canopy is very tight especially when you add the remote receiver. The additional remote control feature is a nice addition to the wall controls. Overall, really pleased with the purchase and the service from Y Lighting.

Customer Questions:

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.
