Design by Ron Rezek.
By Modern Fan Company.

Striving to combine value with design resulted in Modern Fan Company's distinctive Lapa fan. The Lapa's optional light is housed in mouth-blown glass and can be specified to use either a compact fluorescent or halogen lamp. With the fluorescent option the fan qualifies for the EPA's Energy Star labeling as a highly efficient, energy conserving design. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Product Features:

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 5193.33
  • Watts at high speed = 53.10
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 97.80
  • Accommodates a sloped ceiling up to 33°
  • Optional sloped ceiling adapter for slopes over 33° but under 45° (sold separately)
  • Includes 5" and 13" downrods for 16" or 24" overall height
  • Optional downrods available for alternate heights
  • Optional hugger adapter for low-ceiling applications reduces overall height to 12"
  • Note: Express shipping is available on this item. In most cases, orders received before 12:00 PM Pacific time will ship the same day.
Dimensions
  • Fan body: 7" Dia X 9" H
  • Ceiling canopy: 5.25" Dia

Modern Fan Company

Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes. The unique ceiling fan styles of Modern Fan represent a new age in ceiling fans - the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design (you won't find any wicker or flowery fans here!).

Modern Fan Ceiling Fan Buyers' Guide + FAQs

How low can the fan go and still meet my local code?

Code requires that the fan blades be at least seven feet off the floor. The code looks to the blade height and not the bottom of the fan body. However, for low ceiling installations, we recommend the Modern Fan Co. Cirrus Hugger as it looks more proportional when installed. This is the most popular fan sold in New York City, for instance, due to the high number of low- ceiling apartments there. For low ceilings, we recommend the Cirrus Hugger over the Cirrus as it is better balanced visually.

What size fan blades should I use?

In nearly all cases, the 50-inch to 56-inch blade spans are the most appropriate selections. The 42-inch or 46-inch blade spans should be reserved for smaller rooms or narrow spaces (10-foot-by-10-foot and smaller) or when airflow to the area above the blades is blocked or restricted by architectural elements (beams, walls, cabinetry, etc.). Occasionally, two 42-inch fans may be a desirable alternative to one 52-inch fan. The Altus and Cirrus models are also available with a 36-inch blade span for exceptionally small or narrow spaces.

How far down should I drop the fan?

We recommend that you drop the fan as far down as your aesthetics will allow in order to create the most air circulation.

What kind of light should I expect from the light kits? Will they light an entire room?

In general, the light produced by the light kits will not be sufficient for an entire room's illumination with the exception of the Halo fan. The light kits that use MR16 bulbs will not produce much task lighting at all and are more decorative in nature. The light kits which use incandescent bulbs will illuminate the area directly below and around the fan. The Halo has great lumen output and can easily light up an entire room since this body is very large and the glass is a great light diffuser. However, we do not recommend this fan in small rooms as the size of the fan tends to be visually overpowering.

Can I use ceiling fans outdoors?

All Modern Fan models are rated and marked as "Suitable for Damp Location." While you can expect years of trouble-free performance from these fans when installed in humid or coastal environments, the degree to which the appearance of a fan may be impacted by the environment will vary widely. A fan's specific finishing process as well as the intensity and nature of exposure that it will encounter in a given application will directly affect the longevity of its finish and appearance. A damp rating does not address specific finish durability, nor does it assure that corrosion will not occur in exposed locations. We encourage you to closely consider these factors when selecting fans for use in damp locations. A diligent maintenance program, initiated immediately after product installation at a frequency necessary to avoid salt deposits on the fan surface(s) for prolonged periods of time, is the best defense against corrosion and oxidation.

The brushed aluminum and galvanized finishes will typically outlast all others in our collection. These surfaces will not rust or peel, however, they will weather as a result of oxidation and exposure to salt or other corrosive conditions. The bright nickel and matte nickel finishes are also well-suited for exposure to reasonable conditions, but may show signs of weathering more quickly and visibly. The coated finishes (gloss white, titanium, textured nickel, gloss nickel) may be subject to peeling over time when exposed to sun, salt and/or other environmental conditions.

An additional consideration is blade construction. Over time, plywood is subject to warping and/or delamination. While fan blades are easily replaceable when necessary, our injection molded plastic blades supplied with the Velo, Velo Hugger and Pensi fans will generally outlast the plywood blades supplied with all other models in our catalog.

Modern Fans are not rated, nor intended for use in applications classified as Wet Location.

Can I use the fan on a sloped ceiling?

We offer sloped ceiling canopies for all Modern Fan Co. fans. However, with respect to the Stratos, the sloped ceiling installation is more difficult and should be performed by a licensed electrician using the factory installed (at purchase) sloped ceiling adaptor.

Which lighting control should I use?

While the choices in lighting controls seem overwhelming, the decision shouldn't be:

MF001: This is the basic three-speed control used to change speed on a fan without a light. It mounts on a wall switch box and includes a Decora-style wall plate.

MF002: This is the basic three-speed control (MF001) but with the ability to control a light (three levels of light intensity). This control requires two circuits from the wall box to the ceiling junction box (one circuit for the fan motor and one circuit for the fan light).

MF004 (MF011 for Ball/Whirlybird): If you do not have two circuits leading to your fan installation, then use this control. It uses the two wires that come from the junction box to the wall box to control the fan motor and it uses a radio transmitter (similar to a garage opener) to control the light on the fan.

MF009: This is the same as the MF001 but is designed to control three-to-five fans simultaneously.

MF003 (MF010 for Ball/Whirlybird): This is a handheld remote control unit that allows you to control both the fan and the light. The remote control has a LCD screen which shows the current setting. With the five buttons you can select one of the three fans speeds, stop, or light intensity. A signal receiving unit is placed into the fan canopy. A wall hanger is included with the remote.

Why is my fan sometimes on when I come home?

If your fan is mysteriously on when you come home from work, you are using one of the radio controllers. There are dip switches up in the fan body that change the frequency that the controller uses. Switch the frequency and your problem should go away.

Why does my fan wobble?

Fan wobble is an inherent problem with fans due to minute variation in the fan blade weight distribution. Modern Fan Company's fan blades are specified to be within one gram weight difference to avoid wobble. However, some wobble tends to be inevitable due to variance in installation location, airflow and other minutiae. Included in every fan is a small tool to help balance the fan and thereby reduce wobble: Attach the device to the end of each fan blade and turn the fan on. After trying this tool on each blade, identify the blade which, when the tool is attached, produces the least wobble. Then, move the tool from the outside of that blade towards the center in half-inch increments until you find the "sweet spot" (the location that produces the least wobble). In most cases, this will solve your problem. Modern Fan Company does not consider wobble to be a defect, and accordingly will not repair or replace installed fans due to wobble. YLighting accepts returns on fans but only if the fan has not been installed. So if a little wobble disturbs you, we discourage you from investing in a fan of any kind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fan and easy to install This is my second Modern Fan from Ylighting...and I can say I'm a fan. Ceiling fans are typically ugly old thing that had no style, not these fans. High quality and efficient...and they produce a nice breeze. I don't think I'd ever buy anything else. Ylighting service is fast and typically low/free shipping cost. I've never had any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fan...couldn't be happier! This fan is stylish but also disappears on the ceiling which is why we bought white. Very pleased with design, simple install and great performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good ... Wanted one of these for quite awhile for my International Style, Hickory Cluster townhouse designed by the late modern architect Charles M. Goodman. YL had the right price, so ... I finally bit the bullet. Bought the nickel finish, 52 inch maple blade, no light version with hugger kit. Was well-packed and arrived undamaged. Main/motor section is larger than I expected, but no problem. Maple blades are a pleasing lighter shade. Plan to use a Decora-style stepped motor control from Home Depot or elsewhere rather than the manufacturer model. Won't install until the renovations are done and new paint is on the walls in a few months. Stay tuned ...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to install but has annoying hum We had a really hard time finding a modern fan that we liked. We really love the Haiku fan but at $1000 we can't afford more than the one we already had. So we settled on this one as the least ugly of all the lesser expensive fans, although at almost $400 (with the remote) it is certainly not cheap. I loved that it was easy to install, with instructions that were understandable and all parts worked as advertised. I had to spend a few minutes balancing the blades. Unfortunately, my main beef is that the fan has an annoying hum. I expect that from a cheap fan from a home store, but I expected this motor to be silent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan! Learning curve to install The Lapa looks great, is very quiet and the high setting creates some serious wind in our little room. We chose the Lapa hugger with CFL light; the Ylighting sales help recommended it as the hugger with the brightest CFL light. The installation took some time, but I think next time things will go much faster. We got the additional hugger kit and had a hard time mating the hugger plate to the Lapa body. The 2 parts were never mated together in manufacturing and the parts aren't toleranced well; my husband had to spend some time banging/bending the plate's lip so it would fit inside the body. But the instructions were otherwise pretty well written and the fan itself is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific, attractive, quiet, easy to install fan! We purchased this fan for the Master Bedroom of our new home based on manufacturer's reputation and appearance. But buying on-line is still a little unnerving because you can't be 100% sure what you're getting. We were pleased when the order arrived quickly and excited to see the quality of the fan when it was unpacked. Installation was a breeze; probably the easiest we've ever done. There was NO balancing of the blades needed. How often does that happen? The fan runs quietly at all speeds. The contemporary look is perfect for our home. Now we're thinking of getting a second fan for the Guest Bedrrom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Lapa Ceiling Fan. I've looked all over for a contemporary ceiling fan for my new home. I bought the Lapa Ceiling Fan for our master bedroom. It is very high quality and we can't wait for our builder to get it installed as we are thinking about getting two more for the Great Room. Thanks for the quick service and wonderful product. Love your products that are so unique in design that aren't available any place else. And thanks for carrying so many designs where your customers and choose whether they want a light kit or not. I needed fans without lights and it is difficult to find a contemporary fan without lights.
