Description

DWR Exclusive

Upon finishing his master’s in industrial design at Pratt in 2005, Brad Ascalon was named one of the world’s “Ten Most Wanted” emerging designers by Wallpaper. He grew up immersed in art and design, and his chosen career is a nod to his father and grandfather, the latter of whom founded a metal arts manufacturing company in Israel in the late 1930s. “He designed hundreds of decorative objects,” says Ascalon, “including dozens of menorahs. In fact, one piece he designed is in the permanent collection at the Jewish Museum.” Ascalon’s father also designs menorahs, but not for tabletops. Rather, he produces one-of-a-kind, large-scale permanent art installations for synagogues around North America. When Ascalon approached us to see if we’d be interested in producing his first menorah design, we enthusiastically agreed. The result is an elegant design crafted out of Carrara marble. “Stylistically, the design finds itself in an interesting niche,” says Ascalon, “visually modern with an unexplainable classic undertone. The eight facets correspond to the eight days of Chanukah, and the left and right diagonals create an 18-degree angle. In Judaism, 18 is a very important number symbolizing chai, or ‘life.’” A kosher design, the Ascalon Menorah (2011) accommodates eight candles arranged in a line on one level and a ninth, the shamash (used to light the others), on another. Available with or without 45 hand-dipped 6-inch white candles, which burn clean and bright for more than an hour each. Made in China.

  • Part of the permanent collection at the National Museum of American Jewish History.
  • Handpicked by Oprah for her 2011 “Favorite Things” issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
