Haiku Fan Wins the 2012 International Red Dot Award
Settling into the same category as thin doors and cheap hardware around the house is the lack luster look of a utilitarian fan. While the fan spectrum has always gone from lavish and over-the-top to noisy and inexpensive, we’ve never really given the efficient cooling of a room the design attention it deserves in order to reach the mass of the design-savvy that may fall somewhere in between. That is, until the Haiku fan came along.

A Modern Bamboo Fan That Radiates Silent Poetry.
“Haiku’s airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless organic form,” says the Haiku fan’s dedicated website. “Internally, its award-winning motor and controls deliver silent operation and an 80% improvement in energy efficiency over other small ceiling fans.” Thanks to the prowess of the Haiku fan’s mother ship – also known as the Big Ass Fan Company® that makes the cunning Element and Isis mid-size fans – the Haiku fan uses the momentum of advanced tech features to give it a smooth, silent and residential feel.
Winning the prestigious International Red Dot award for 2012, the non-ventilated design of Haiku’s Sensorless Drive Technology™ comes in two bamboo finishes, as well as a black or white composite. Being non-ventilated, the modern fan’s three blades are easy and safe to clean with the swipe of a cloth.
Haiku’s state-of-the-art technology earned a top rating from ENERGY STAR®, making what the company lists as the fan’s “direct current, permanent magnetics and ultra-efficient airfoils” a home run that may “mark a sea change in the way small ceiling fans are designed and built.”
About the Manufacturer: After years of perfecting the large-scale offerings at the Big Ass Fans Company®, the Haiku Fan Company branched off to create equally as influential fans whose diameters are small-scale. The Haiku Fan Company won the International Red Dot award 2012 and also the LiveEDGE award that acknowledged the Haiku’s specific motor design on an international scale.
