LEXINGTON, KY - Out of a record field of entries, Haiku™, the most energy-efficient small ceiling fan, has earned the red dot award for product design.

Thirty international experts judged the field of more than 4,500 products submitted for consideration for the coveted red dot, an international symbol of quality design. Haiku’s exact placement in the product award category will be revealed at the red dot gala in July.

The red dot design award is an independent and well-established seal of quality design. Along with winning the title, Haiku will be featured in the annual red dot design yearbook and displayed in the red dot design museum.

Haiku’s design and performance set it apart from other small ceiling fans. Its airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless form, reflecting the concept of organic essentialism—eliminating the superfluous and perfecting the basics. Internally, its sleek look conceals Sensorless Drive Technology™ that delivers an 80% improvement in efficiency over conventional ceiling fan motors. Haiku’s unique technology has been awarded eight patents worldwide, as well as the top rating from ENERGY STAR®.

Haiku is no stranger to the winner’s podium, previously winning the LiveEDGE award, an international competition acknowledging excellence in electronic design for the global environment.

Haiku is the result of years of research and development, hundreds of prototypes, and an unequaled drive for perfection from the Big Ass Fans Company®, the world leader in large diameter, low speed fans.
