Cutting Edge: the Enigma Fan

by Andi

Today, the good ol’ ceiling fan has become pretty obsolete, due to modern air conditioning systems. This has forced the manufacturers to get creative, in order to keep them from disappearing completely.

This way, many ceiling fans have become masterpieces of design, and their use switched from cooling a room to adding some ‘cool’ to the room. And really, what could be cooler than a BIG single-bladed slow-rotating ceiling fan?

Enter the Fanimation Enigma Ceiling Fan!


The fan is actually just a big blade reminding of an elongated cleaver that slowly spins around a halogen ‘eye’. You can’t estimate its size in the picture, so let me reveal it: 60 inches of blade span!

The fan and lights are controlled via a remote. You have several options:

  1. 3 speeds for the fan: a delicious 60 rpm, then 90 and 120 for a stormier atmosphere
  2. on/off toggle for the ‘eye’ in the middle
  3. 3 stages of dimming for the floodlight (another 4 spots located on top)

It’s availabe in three colors – white, silver and jet black. Of course, given its uber-cool design and its ‘advanced features’ (the remote, remember?), it costs $900.

it’s all fun and games until it breaks from the vibration and chops your dog’s head off.

That Fan is seen in the iRobot movie in Will Smiths house in the background…

As with all Fanimation fans, it’s hand-built and built like a tank.
