Haiku. Big ass fans.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

For more than a decade, the Big Ass Fan Company® has been the preeminent designer and manufacturer of high volume/low speed ceiling and vertical fans for industrial spaces.

Introducing Haiku™ – the ceiling fan that exceeds expectations you never knew you had. Inelegant designs have masked the inefficiencies of ceiling fans for more than a century. Built from scratch, every component of Haiku was designed for its minimalist beauty, efficiency and performance. The ceiling fan industry – and your home – will never be the same. It’s time to take back the ceiling.

Haiku’s sleek profile conceals patent-pending electronics and a cool-running motor with an integrated inverter drive that delivers an 80% improvement in energy efficiency over conventional ceiling fans. Haiku’s airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless form. This contemporary ceiling fan design reflects organic essentialism—eliminating the superfluous and perfecting the basics. The average ENERGY STAR® residential fan utilizes 65 W of electrical input power. In contrast, Haiku fans only use 2 to 30 W, exceeding the ENERGY STAR requirements for watts per CFM by 450 to 750%. In a typical year, Haiku would use about 50kWh, for a cost of around $5.

Haiku’s airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless organic form. Internally, its award-winning motor and controls deliver silent operation and an 80% improvement in energy efficiency over other small ceiling fans. The smooth, non-ventilated design gives dust nowhere to hide inside the motor and the entire fan can be wiped down for a comprehensive clean. All of this engineering comes beautifully wrapped in a sleek, contemporary package. No bells, no whistles. Just the world’s most perfect ceiling fan.

Haiku™ ceiling fans are available in two materials:

Bamboo – Caramel or cocoa finishes

– Five layers of meticulously hand-finished bamboo
– Environmentally sustainable material – Moso bamboo fully renews itself every five years

Matrix Composite – Black or white options

– Automotive-grade finish with three coats ensures an ageless finish
– Damp rated for superior performance inside or outdoors
