Design by Ron Rezek, 1986.
By The Modern Fan Company.

The first truly modern ceiling fan, Stratos has no reference to the Victorian era designs which still dominate the fan industry. Among its innovations is the structural down rod which gives the fan an impression of secure attachment to the architectural space and virtually eliminates the wobble so often seen in conventional fans. The patented, single piece, die-cast rotor eliminates the problems of balance and tedious assembly required with the classic blade iron configuration.

The Stratos is all die-cast and extruded aluminum and offered in either a gloss white or a hand brushed aluminum finish. 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. Energy Star rated when used as fan only. The optional light kit may be specified with either a halogen or fluorescent light source. 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 Stratos ships in a 17" overall height configuration. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 31° when using the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately). Select white, aluminum or maple blades with a 42" or 52" blade span.

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 5449.01
  • Watts at high speed = 70.6
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 77.18

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."

Great clean, modern design and superior functionality all in one!

This is my second Stratos fan by Modern Fan, and I keep coming back for the same design because of its clean modern design and quiet operation. This time I bought the remote version and find it very appealing. We didn't have to run a line to the plug and now I can operate it while in bed.

Piece of artwork for your ceiling.

This is my second purchase of the Stratos Ceiling Fan. What a beauty! It is quiet and it does not wobble. I would get this without the light attachment, because I believe the light takes away from the beauty of the fan itself.

This is an excellent fan that I would recomend to anyone that appreciates style, quality and efficiency.

This is our third fan from the Modern Fan Company and we have been extremely pleased with all three models. The quality is exceptional, the fans are easy to install and they work quietly and efficiently.

Unique & Gorgeous

This fan adds a perfect touch of elegant design to our industrial loft space. Well-made, too. Love the column-like downrod. It's a unique fan for unique spaces, especially where you don't need/want a light kit. (We have track lighting in that area, and love the shape of the fan housing bottom.) Very pleased.

I love the Stratos Ceiling Fan!

The Stratos Ceiling Fan by Modern Fan is beautiful. The chunky, sleek lines of the fan were exactly what I was looking for my new home. I am very pleased with the delivery and promptness of Ylighting because we were on a very compressed time schedule and everything came exactly as needed.

Beautiful and functional fan -- perfect for the modern/clean design home.

We have another Stratos so it was a no brainer to get this one for our new addition. It looks great, operates quietly, and does the job. Only note is that the LOW speed seems faster than on our other model, but that's being picky.

good product, GREAT service

Fans look good and run smoothly. Unfortunitly can only reverse with switch on fan itself. Melissa at the factory called to tell me I had ordered extender that didn't match fan and corrected the order for me.

Great Product for Contemporary Homes

I purchased the Stratos Ceiling Fan for installation in a downtown loft. The contemporary design works very well in a loft setting. The design of the downrod really compliments the exposed architectural columns within the loft. Installation was very straight forward with operation is simple and solid. I highly recommend this product.

Great Ceiling Fan and Remote Option

This is the 3rd Stratos Fan that I have purchased and with the latest I also ordered the wall and hand held remote control. This is a great option especially for locations like a bedroom where you can keep the hand held remote on the nightstand. Also, I purchased the Stratos without the lamp option but routed a power line from the remote receiver installed in the canopy of the fan to control a separate track lighting installation. The remote receiver can control, including full-range dimming, incandescent or low voltage lamps controlled with an electronic transformer up to 300 total watts. This allows for independent control of the lighting from the hand held and wall mounted remote as well.

Have used before very modern and efficient

Modern Fan products set the standard in design and also perform very well. Definetly more like a piece of furniture than a fan.

Great fan but needs two people to install

We have use a number of Modern Fans and really like their style and operations.

The only issue we have is to get the clean look the fan post has to turn on locking tabs in the ceiling mount. We have found that to be very difficult to do with out a second person guiding the fan into place.

But the fan is worth the extra effort.

One of the best fan designs around.

It's a classic! Not only is this a quiet functional fan with a well designed light option, it is also so pleasing to look at. I had ordered some 20 years ago that came in a gorgeous black.

Excellent fan, very quiet.

I have never had fans in my house because i dont like the way they look and sound. Nevertheless, this fan is excellent because it take care of both issues. You dont notice it in the room and it does not make any noise.

The fans(brushed aluminum & black) have served us well for over 20 years and we love them.

We have had these fan for about 20 years and love them. They are not only modern but also beautiful. The style has transcended all others in beauty and durability; it is worth the price. Our only regret was not buying the light kits.

Absolutely Beautiful

This fan is beautiful, stylish, compact, and quiet. It doesn't "consume" the ceiling with sprawling blades and a big clunky post but it can move big air. I highly recommend.

Best fans ever!

We built our house 19 years ago and my husband insisted on two of these fans for our two-story living room. I thought they were rather modern for our house but agreed to get them. He reminds me at least monthly that he picked them out and what a good choice they were. The design has grown on me and I love, love, love the air they move. They cool off our huge room wonderfully. When our bedroom fan went out and the design of the kitchen fan became outdated, we decided to get two more of the Stratos fans. Just had them installed last week (the electrician said they were pretty easy) and, yet again, love them. The light kit with the kitchen fan actually illuminates the island area where I often sit to do paperwork. And the remote control in the bedroom works great. These fans get five stars all the way around. Dealing with Ylighting was a pleasure as well.

The Stratos Fan

This was the sixth and seventh Stratos fan that I have bought. I always install these in my new homes. They are sleek, modern, very quiet and do a great job. I have never had a single problem with any of them. You can buy cheaper fans but they will not look, or last like this fan. The option of longer down rods is a great feature and the larger cross section of the down rods makes the unit very stable at any fan speed.

Form meets function and then some

This fan has exceeded my expectations. It's construction an easy install along with it's very unique and handsome looks has been added to my favorites short list Products that I will continue to purchase and reuse future designs. Nearly silent and well-made along with ease of use with remote only add to the fact that it is a strikingly handsome and sculptural & functional ceiling fan.

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.
