Modern Fan Company’s Ceiling Fans
In 1986, industrial designer Ron Rezek was asked if he could come up with something that would innovate and revolutionize the ceiling fan, which was already a century old. Rezek already had an excellent background from his work with lighting, furniture and rescue equipment. If he could turn around this hulking appliance and breathe new life into it, there should definitely be a market for it.
Rezek worked hard then afterwards launched his first modern ceiling fan model, the Stratos. It had a chandelier-like downrod and a polished brushed aluminum finish.
Rezek knew he was on to something bright and new. In 1997, he founded a ceiling fan brand named the “Modern Fan Company” with a clear focus on designing ceiling fans for the modern era.
