Born outside of Philadelphia, Brad Ascalon is a third-generation designer who found himself immersed in the world of art and design from an early age. His grandfather, Maurice Ascalon, was an industrial designer and sculptor who founded a metal arts manufacturing company in Israel in the late 1930s, while his father David is a sculptor and artist whose studio designs and fabricates one-of-a-kind, large-scale permanent art installations for places of worship and public spaces around North America.

Ascalon studied music and communication as an undergraduate at Rutgers University. Upon graduation, he moved to New York and worked in the advertising and music industries for several years before returning to school to study design. In 2005, he completed his Master's degree in industrial design from Pratt Institute and that same year was recognized by Wallpaper* magazine as one of the "Ten Most Wanted" emerging designers in the world.

In 2006, Ascalon founded Brad Ascalon Studio NYC. His multidisciplinary design studio specializes in furniture, packaging, consumer products, environment design and development and clients include Bernhardt Design, Design Within Reach, Ligne Roset and L’Oreal. Ascalon’s work has received international acclaim in publications such as Architectural Digest, Art Review, Dwell, Esquire, Interior Design, The New York Times, Surface, and Whitewall Magazine and has been exhibited globally, from Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile to IMM Cologne in Germany, Maison et Objet in Paris, London’s 100% Design Festival, and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York.

Ascalon lives and works in New York City.
