At Dylan Chappell Architects, we favor the clean lines and natural materials that are often the first indication that you’re dealing with a contemporary design aesthetic. In this post, we examine a collection of modern-style ceiling fans designed by Ron Rezek of The Modern Fan Co.
Rezek is a design entrepreneur who started five successful companies and has designed hundreds of contemporary light fixtures and ceiling fans. It all started in 1970, when Rezek was a graduate student at UCLA, styding industrial design. There, his professors included designers Henry Dreyfuss, Charles Eames, Neils Different and Don Chadwick. In 1986, he designed the first contemporary-styled ceiling fan, which quickly became popular in both commercial and residential settings.
Later, he began the niche company, The Modern Fan Co., which is the only U.S. company to design and sell only contemporary ceiling fans. In 2008, he designed a line of ceiling fans inspired by American and European design movements of the 20th century and launched a new company, The Period Arts Fan Co.
