People line up outside stores for the latest cell phone; that’s the kind of buzz Hunter’s design team wanted to create for this ceiling fan design. They put together a fashion forward look, so they incorporated on-trend industrial elements like the textured glass light and fan body’s exposed hardware.

Our innovative design team created twisted ceiling fan blades inspired by propeller plans to top off the design. They discovered the blade design helped it’s performance and air movement: The steeper angle closer to the housing moves more air and then creates less resistance on the outside where there’s a shallower angle.

Form, meet function.

This industrial, glamorous fan took some twists of its own before arriving at the design we know and love today. The initial concept was simple, featuring a brushed nickel finish and a basic light fixture. The overall design felt industrial, so they swapped out the nickel for rustic finishes and the basic light glass for textured glass.
