Angling into approachable modern: Creating the Dempsey

A modern fan with mass appeal: Hunter Fan’s Design Team focused on subtle, consistent details when creating the Dempsey, allowing it to fit flawlessly into every indoor space or patio at your home.

Modern design can seem scary, but the Dempsey makes modern ceiling fan so comfortable you’ll want this fan in every room of your home.

It’s comfortable in the sense that it’s not too different from the classic ceiling fan, where some modern fans can go really, really far out there; the Dempsey combines the best of both worlds.

Designing ceiling fans is a collaborative effort among the Hunter Design Team, and the Dempsey was no exception. One designer started with base sketches, while Hunter Designer Claire McRoberts – noticing a particular detail in those sketches – felt inspired and completed the design to what it is today.

“The housing angles out and it’s a direct juxtaposition to the glass that angles in, so it helps the fan feel bigger, more substantial,” she said.

Angles — That’s the trend McRoberts kept consistent in the Dempsey design. (Now that we’ve pointed it out, we bet you’ll notice it everywhere on the fan.) From the middle of the blades to the top of the housing, the crisp yet subtle angles push this fan over the border from classic to chic.

In more modern design, less tends to be more, but at same time you want something of interest to look at. Finding the balance between subtle details and cleanliness is always a challenge with modern design, but Hunter’s design team made it seem effortless with the Dempsey.

The angles throughout this contemporary fan’s design helps it fit flawlessly in a home McRoberts describes as “soft modern.”

What’s “soft modern,” you ask?

Soft modern is the space where it goes from transitional to modern. It utilizes softer forms instead of harsh lines; it incorporates soft color pops instead of only black, white, and grey.

Whether your home is mildly modern or completely contemporary, the Dempsey modern ceiling fan’s clean finishes and angled detailing will make your space look current and inspired.
