Like a butterfly that emerges from its cocoon to spread its wings and fly, The Air Shadow by Fanimation spreads out its retractable fan blades to emerge from the fan base and cool. Although Fanimation is known for creating unique ceiling fans, The Air Shadow takes this originality to a whole new level with retractable fan blades that completely disappear into the fan base when the fan is turned off. The Air Shadow is also equipped with multiple finish and blade options that are suitable for either an urban or traditional interior design. For a modern look, The Air Shadow comes in a pewter finish with cherry wood blades or a chrome finish with maple wood blades. For a more traditional look, The Air Shadow is available in oil-rubbed bronze with cherry finish wood blades and either an amber glass or fabric light shade. The Air Shadow operates on three forward and reverse speeds, accommodates a ceiling slope up to 30 degrees and includes a 6'' downrod.
