Cool your home with innovation and style. Here, our picks of new and noteworthy designs from The Modern Fan Company.
The Ball fan represents a return to The Modern Fan Company’s roots, derived from a minimalist approach to ceiling fan design. A perfect sphere provides visual simplicity while housing all the components required for exceeding the EPA’s Energy Star guidelines for air movement efficiency (rating applies to fan only).
The Torsion Ceiling Fan features an aluminum body with 42″, 52″, or 62″ plywood blades, available in a variety of finish options. Torsion combines modern aesthetics to create a functional design with optional light kits and controls.
The Cirrus Hugger compresses power and design into a small efficient package. Introduced to accommodate low ceiling applications, this fan has become a best-seller in New York City. With a 13″ overall height and the blades 7″ from the ceiling, the Cirrus Hugger does not have any sloped ceiling capabilities. However, all other specifications and options are shared with the Cirrus fan.
The Flow Ceiling Fan pairs a practical design with clean aesthetics. Available with a die cast aluminum body in gloss white or matte nickel finishes with 52″ bent plywood blades in bamboo, nickel, or white. Offered with optional halogen or compact fluorescent light kit. The 370-Halogen light kit adds 2″ to the length of this fan. The 371-Compact Fluorescent light kit adds 3.5″ to the length of this fan.
The Modern Fan Company breaks new ground with an all mouth-blown glass bodied ceiling fan, the Halo. The high quality European glass gives the fan its form, translucency and lighting diffusion. The lower opal glass, which holds the light source, lights the room and casts gentle light into the upper glass making the whole fan glow. With the fluorescent option the fan qualifies for the EPA’s Energy Star labeling as a highly efficient, energy conserving design.
Efficiency in a ceiling fan means getting the most air movement out of the electricity (watts) that the fan motor uses. The Velo fan combines a strong motor with contoured blades molded of high-impact ABS plastic to deliver increased efficiency.
The larger-scaled Pharos pairs a powerful motor and advanced design principles to provide outstanding air distribution and useful light. The fan’s primary feature, a series of louvers, give it a “deco” style and reduces glare from the light source.
The Pensi fan by renowned Spanish designer, Jorge Pensi, is a pure expression of minimal design and maximum performance. Available in either a gloss white or aluminum and anthracite finish, the Pensi uses contoured blades molded of high-impact ABS plastic to deliver increased efficiency. The four blades have a span of 50″ and may be specified in white or aluminum. The optional MR16 halogen down light kit is ideal for highlighting the area beneath.
The Solus Ceiling Fan features an aluminum body with 42″ or 52″ plywood blades, available in a variety of finish options. Solus combines functional design with a sleek motif available with optional light kits and controls.
A continuing desire to add value along with design resulted in Modern Fan Company’s distinctive Lapa fan. The Lapa’s optional light is housed in mouth-blown glass and can be specified to use either a compact fluorescent or incandescent lamp. With the fluorescent option the fan qualifies for the EPA’s Energy Star labeling as a highly efficient, energy conserving design.
