LEXINGTON, Ky., March 17, 2013 – The award-winning Haiku® ceiling fan from Big Ass Fans® now lights up a room even more with the addition of a new, patent-pending LED light module. Integrated seamlessly into the fan’s already minimalist design, the energy-efficient LED module reinforces Haiku’s No. 1 ENERGY STAR® ranking. LEDs are 80% more efficient than incandescent bulbs and offer an unparalleled lifespan of 50,000 hours—about 17 years of standard use.
In addition to Haiku’s ten unique settings, the LED module’s digital dimmer offers 16 increments of brightness to provide the perfect amount of light for any setting. At its brightest, the LED module provides the equivalent brightness of a 100W light bulb, while consuming only 20W. For a customized appearance, both translucent and smoky lenses are included with every fan.
The Haiku ceiling fan’s sleek design, top-quality materials, handcrafted construction and precision engineering have attracted the attention of award juries worldwide, including the exclusive red dot. Haiku was also named “Best of What’s New” by Popular Science magazine and a Best of the Year by Interior Design.
Haiku ceiling fans bring style and silent, high-efficiency air movement to residential spaces, including bedrooms, living spaces and patios, as well as hotels, restaurants and other commercial spaces. Haiku Bamboo is available in caramel or cocoa (featured above); the matrix composite Haiku comes in black or white. Available in mid-April, the LED module is $95 additional.
