Not your grandmother’s ceiling fan!
Designed in 1986, the Stratos was the first truly modern ceiling fan. It is now a modern classic and has paved the way not only for a large collection of ceiling fans by The Modern Fan Company, but also other more traditional fan companies.
The Stratos has no reference to the Victorian-era designs that pervade the fan industry. Among its innovations is the column-like support in place of the down rod used on other fans, lending a sense of attachment to the architectural space.
The Stratos also introduced Ron Rezek’s patented, single-piece, die-cast rotor, which continues to be the signature element of nearly all Modern Fan designs.
Modern Fan Co. Eclipse Fan
When Ron Rezek designed the Stratos ceiling fan back in 1986 there was not a single contemporary ceiling on the market. No matter how modern your house was, ceiling fans were only available with scrolls and ornamentation, hideous light kits and dangling pull chains.
This changed with the Stratos fan and the other fans from the Modern Fan Co., founded in 1997.
Designed to be not only stylish, but energy efficient, all fans from the Modern Fan Co. work well in a wide variety of settings, from sleek office spaces to eclectic homes, from mountain cabins to fashionable lofts.
The fan shown here is the Eclipse ceiling fan. Its triple down rod system and the “nouveau” design give the Eclipse its unique appearance.
