Big Ass Fans has successfully scaled down the systems and technology used in its large diameter, low speed fans. The company now offers Haiku, a ceiling fan designed for smaller commercial and residential spaces.

The concealed motor of this new ceiling fan delivers an 80% improvement in efficiency over conventional ceiling fan motors, exceeding Energy Star requirements.

Operated by remote control, the fan has ten settings including “Whoosh,” which simulates natural variations in airflow for greater user comfort. The airfoils are made of Moso bamboo and feature an aerodynamic profile providing smooth and silent airflow.

According to the manufacturer, every Haiku is individually balanced at all speeds before it’s disassembled and packaged for shipping ensuring the customer will receive the perfect fan. BD+C
