    Casablanca Orchid (Yes, another collaboration)

    After you all blew up the Duluth video so well, my contacts at Casablanca wanted to do it again. The review video for the Orchid is live now, though I did make an error that I want to clarify here even though I added an annotation on the video and information in the description. The LED light kit IS in fact dimmable, the control system has a disable feature that I was unaware of. I mean I assumed it must have one like most controls do now, but I didn't know if it was auto-detect or something different. Just goes to show my inexperience with the new Universal control system, I'm learning something new about it all the time. But it's actually a pretty decent little fan, I'm impressed with it. Specs rank on the higher end for small fans, and the visual impact is huge. Love the finish, love the light output, love the air movement. Such a cool fan to see in motion. Overall a great effort on Casablanca's part, the design team isn't playing around this year.






    Also, this fan breaks the record for biggest factory ceiling fan box I've ever received, its literally huge. This picture is it sitting on a love seat in our basement, I couldn't even keep it in the fan room while filming it takes up so much space.

    I'd love to see an install of five of these over a bar. I also think the fan is a contradiction in terms as it's subtle, yet the blades are dramatic.

    Dramatically subtle modernism?

    Agreed with all statements! I think this is a great design for a multi-fan install, you could implement multiple small fans into a larger space to make it functional.

    You hit it exactly as I'd describe it. It has the ability to blend quietly into a room, but it still has a bold design that you're gonna notice. As I said in the review, it's going to be statement piece, but by the same token it's not going to overpower your space.

    About the Orchid's box size! Is it bigger than the Oceaus's box because the Oceanus's box as I recall from seeing them at Lowe's in 2004 were really big as well as very heavy?!

    Way bigger. The Oceanus is probably the third biggest box I have, right behind the Emerson Laclede Eco, and the Orchid is the biggest by a long shot. It's easily double, maybe triple, the size of any typical 52" fan box. When it came in I thought they'd bulk packaged two fans together.
