Ceiling fan kinda day

I am meeting clients this afternoon to shop for lighting. They informed me yesterday that they're also dead-set on putting a ceiling fan in their high-ceiling-ed living room. That's fine, but these folks are another one of my contemporary jobs and that makes this quest for an appropriate fan more challenging. Luckily, I have a mind like a steel trap and I forget nothing. (Hah!) As soon as I heard the words ceiling fan, I remembered one I'd fallen hard for a couple of years ago.

Here it is. The Cirque by Mark Gajewski for G Squared.


I have never had the opportunity to put one of these babies in a project. Until now that is. If I have anything to say about it, here's my clients' new fan. Look at it. It reminds me of a Calder mobile.

The last time I specified a Cirque, my clients ended up going with an Artemis, also by Mark Gajewski for G Squared. I'll be honest. It doesn't really do a whole lot for me.


But at the end of the day, what I think doesn't really matter. After all, it's not going into my house.

  2. Hmmm. I like the idea of it more than the execution of it.

  3. It is a fan kind of day! They can definitely transform a room is done right. We have a way modern stainless number in our bedroom. It's really striking.

  5. I like the style of the second one but I bet it doesnt move much air. There is this fan called the eigma that i bought on winddeco.com. It moves a lot of air and its relaly stylish.

  6. That's a really cool fan Rachele. It reminds me of the set design in the great movie "Brazil." That Artemis fan is surprisingly efficient, the increased surface area of the fan blades moves a huge amount of room air.

  7. Paul, I really like Wind Deco's fans. They are the most beautiful and unique you can find. They are also so quiet I couldn't believe it! We bought the Fargo for our office and its been great! The Fargo moves air without blowing the papers all around the room.

  8. Wow Rachele, that Fargo is the coolest portable I've ever seen. It looks like something Jules Verne would have kept on his desk! How goes your reno?

  10. Thanks! I really just enjoy decorating. Most of the time I find little pieces here or there and just put it together. The Wind Deco fan I bought was my "big ticket" item for my room and it was TOTALLY worth the money! You should defiantly think of investing in one yourself!

  11. I am looking for a cieling fan flush mounted type perhaps without the fan blades but rather a blower circularor. We have a room with a low cieling and I stick my hands up sometimes when I put on a sweat shirt. The light also needs to be very flush up to the fan. Nothing can hang down much lower than 9 or 10 inches maximum from the cieling. Perhaps something with quiet air jets rather than blades that get out of ballance and shake the fan back and forth. Since this will probably be an enclosed unit it may also have a filter system to clean the air. It beats dusting the fan blades every month. If it is light enough I may be able to install it in rooms with cieling lights that do not have the cieling fan support brace.
