Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Period Arts Fan Company.

The Altus is an example of Ron Rezek using pure geometry to develop attractive and sophisticated Seccessionist design. The compact Altus features an organic shape that lends itself to virtually any interior. Available with Dark Bronze metal finish and with a blade span of 42" or 52".

The Altus is Energy Star rated when used as fan only. Optional light kit is available in both halogen (large or small glass) or fluorescent versions. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Includes 5" and 17" downrods for 12" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The Altus fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately).

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 6215

Period Arts Fan Company

The Period Arts Fan Company was founded to develop authentic ceiling fans true to the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century architectural, interior and product design movements.

Arts & Crafts, Neoclassicism, Art Nouveau, the Wiener Werkstatte, Viennese Secessionism, the Bauhaus along with Futurism and French Art Deco are fertile sources for retrospective ceiling fan designs.

The first electric ceiling fans (c. 1890's), although well engineered and functional, were generally ornamented in what is now called the "Victorian" style. This style evolved from "naturalis", in which objects were adorned in plant and flower motifs and were highly patterned and stylized. Most of the ceiling fans on the market today are copies of, or inspired by this Victorian-era style.

Period Arts looks to the great American and European design movements of the past for inspiration in producing original interpretations of what could have been. These new alternatives possess the best of both worlds: period design and modern technology.

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."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Altus fan from The Modern Fan Company is a great product. I just finished the installation of two Altus fans for a high cieling living room. Because the wiring was not in place, we ordered the fans with hand held remote controls instead of hard wired wall switches. I was impressed with the overall finish and quality of the product. The housings and blade holders are heavy well finished die castings and the entire unit is heavier than I expected. The box arrived with all necessary parts neatly packaged and ready. I would have given the fan a 5 rating, but for a mild disappointment with the speed control. The remote allows 3 speeds. The fan is dead quiet and perfectly balanced at all speeds. The Low setting is very slow and gentle. The next speed, Medium is adequate for bringing hot air down from the high ceiling. However, when you switch to high, it is a big jump in speed and air movement. The fan would be a little better with a four speed remote allowing a "3rd gear" between medium and high. For most settings using remote controls this will probably not be an issue. All things considered, it's a great product and I would strongly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's an amazing design that is universally a great choice for any apartment. I ordered the dark bronze with black 52" blade Altus fan with the 75W mini bulb. It looks absolutely fantastic installed. Exceeding our expectations with how it would appear and functions. Very silent for the amount of air it pushes, not vibrations, the perfect fan. Also if you are using the remote and you also have a preexisting on/off switch, it will remember your last remote setting when using the wall switch. IE it will be nice in the winter time when we just want to toggle the light on/off with the wall switch without engaging the fan.
