Designed by a team of engineers who recognized an opportunity to create ceiling art, Haiku’s contemporary ceiling fan technology hides inside the seamless fit and finish at its center. The sleek look conceals Sensorless Drive Technology™ that delivers an 80% improvement in energy efficiency over conventional ceiling fans. Before being confirmed as the most efficient among ENERGY STAR® ceiling fans, Haiku™ had already won the prestigious international LiveEDGE award acknowledging excellence in electronic design for the global environment.
These motors are extremely inefficient, requiring more energy than is used to create mechanical shaft power, and releasing the excess energy as heat.
The unique technology that goes into the Haiku ceiling fan has been awarded eight patents worldwide.
In order to drive the motor, Haiku’s electronic controller detects the position of the permanent magnets relative to the windings. Haiku’s patent-pending sensorless control directly measures the voltage generated in the windings. This results in very smooth and quiet operation, making Haiku™ the best ceiling fan on the market.Haiku speaks for itself without making a sound.
Haiku™ airfoils are much more than mere ceiling fan blades. Unlike traditional flat ceiling fan blades, Haiku’s patent-pending Thin Sheet™ airfoils move large amounts of air with minimum resistance for maximum efficiency, offering a vast improvement in performance over flat ceiling fan blades. The aerodynamic profile results in smooth, silent airflow (in fact, it’s also the quietest ceiling fan in the world—at all speeds).
Integrated seamlessly into the fan’s already minimalist design, the energy-efficient LED module reinforces Haiku’s number one ENERGY STAR® ranking. 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.
Haiku airfoils are made from the highest quality materials to ensure they will never droop or flex. Their sleek central finish reflects the precision engineering at the fan’s core.
The Haiku Bamboo ceiling fan is made of five layers of meticulously handcrafted Moso bamboo, a resource that naturally renews itself every five years.
Matrix composite is a durable material, finished with three-pass automotive-grade paint for a lasting finish that will never fade. Like the three lines of a Haiku poem, each airfoil reflects the careful evolution of its natural design.
Haiku’s advanced electronics also allow numerous additional settings beyond the basic three speeds offered by traditional ceiling fans. Controlled by a thin ceiling fan remote control, Haiku™ has ten settings, including the exclusive Whoosh™ mode, a proprietary algorithm that simulates the variations in natural airflow for greater user comfort.
Human thermal receptors have peak sensitivity to wind gusts that vary by 0.47 Hz. Providing air movement with this variation can increase perceived cooling by 40%.
Other settings include:
The compact ceiling fan remote control perfectly aligns with the entire Haiku mission – providing simple, minimalist elegance with no waste or excess materials. The ceiling fan remote control also comes with a wall mount for easy access.
