Dirk Van Erp emigrated from Holland to San Francisco where he established a now famous coppersmith shop making household products. His designs have come to be synonymous with the West Coast Arts & Crafts Movement. Van Erp''s lamps consisted of hammered-copper bases and shades or translucent mica treated with shellac to give them an amber cast.
The Period Arts Fan Company was founded to develop authentic ceiling fans, original ceiling fans and classic fan design true to the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century architectural, interior and product design movements. Arts & Crafts, Neoclassicism, Art Nouveau, the Wiener Werkstatte, Viennese Secessionism, the Bauhaus along with Futurism and French Art Deco are fertile sources for retrospective ceiling fan designs. The Period Arts Fan Company, with a stunning ceiling selection of original ceiling fans and classic fan design, will be looking to the great American and European design movements of the past for inspiration in producing original interpretations of what could have been. These new alternatives possess the best of both worlds: period design and modern technology.
