Review: Fanimation Draco Ceiling Fans

Fanimation Zonix Ceiling Fans

When I fix my eyes upon the Fanimation Draco many words come to mind, but I have a difficult time fixating on a phrase that totally captures the design. Fanimation tags the Draco as cool, contemporary and captivating. I suppose that is an adequate description of the fan, but for me, the ambiguously defined phrase, geek chic, comes to the forefront of my mind. Geek chic is a phrase that has just recently become popular now that the Internet has granted so much power to us nerds. Somewhat nerdy clothing and other geeky accessories, such as household goods, have a slight air of coolness now. I’m guessing that it’s the black rims and circular rings adorning the fan that are reminding me of those thick black rimmed glasses that should come standard with a pocket protector (think Back to the Future), but I digress.

Other than being geek chic in my opinion, the Draco ceiling fan surely has a 50s burger and milkshake joint look to it. I can imagine the Fanimation Draco being a captivating focal point in the right retro environment. Please keep in mind that 50s retro environments are considered somewhat contemporary these days but not exactly modern. It can be difficult to keep all of these subjective design phrases straight sometimes. It cannot be debated though that the Draco is a quality uniquely styled ceiling fan that will surely draw attention from your guests. This ceiling fan is a unipacked fan that comes in either a chrome or glossy black finish and sports a 60 inch blade sweep with a 15 degree pitch. Its powerful 188 x 25 Fanimation motor has three forward and reverse speeds that are controlled by an included remote control. The Draco is typically priced around $400.
