Design Within Reach Ascalon Menorah Design Within Reach Ascalon Menorah

DWR Exclusive Upon finishing his masters in industrial design at Pratt in 2005, Brad Ascalon was named one of the worlds 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. Ascalons 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 wed 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.

Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames Plywood Elephant Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames Plywood Elephant

Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Plywood Elephant (1945) is among the plywood pieces designed by the Eameses and one of the most difficult to produce. In the early 1940s, they successfully developed an innovative method for molding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, which they used to produce a wide range of furniture and sculptural objects. To render the Elephant, tight angles and compound curves require a sophisticated mastery of plywood technology. It was so complicated that the full-size Plywood Elephant never went into production. Only two prototypes were made, both of which were displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 1945 and 1946. Today only one known model remains in the possession of the Eames family. Vitra Design Museum has reproduced the Plywood Elephant at a scale of 1:6.

Whats amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on, and the way its woven provides lasting comfort. Thirty years after he founded his company, Niels Otto Møller began exporting his chairs to Japan, which remains one of its biggest markets due to the simplicity and quality of the design and craftsmanship. Møllers is still a small family-owned business, now managed by Niels son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. These chairs are authentic, fully licensed products of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. Made in Denmark. The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord. To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas. Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and cant replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand. Materials: Teak frame; woven paper cord seat.

Material research primarily determines all of Jongerius designs. Her vast portfolio includes single pieces exhibited at galleries, mass-produced products sold at retail stores, design of airliner interiors and even the redesign of the North Delegates Lounge at the UN Headquarters in New York. Jongerius was just beginning her career when she was approached by Maharam and invited to work on a project for their 100th anniversary. Maharam now produces 29 different Jongerius textiles, many of which are in the permanent collections at the Art Institute Chicago, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum and MoMA. In addition to conceiving textiles for Maharam, Jongerius creates innovative works for clients of her own company, Jongeriuslab, and serves as the design director at Danskina, a Kvadrat Maharam company for which she dreams up rugs. She has a very clear idea of what makes a successful rug: There are three components that have to make music together: interesting yarns, great construction and the right technique to give the pattern dazzling oxygen. Her Bold Rug (2014) features manually and mechanically spun yarns, resulting in a deeply irregular heavy texture. It strategically employs color to divide its surface, with a body that has two main hues in a 2-1 ratio and an accent hue that demarcates where the fringe begins. Made in India.

De Pree. A bit of family history: De Pree also founded the Herman Miller Clock Company in 1926 but turned it over in 1937 to Howard, who renamed it.

Design Within Reach Etch Candleholder Design Within Reach Etch Candleholder

The Etch Candleholder (2010) is digitally manufactured via an industrial process used to produce electronics such as circuit boards. The advanced method allows intricate patterns to be cut – or etched – directly into the metal. With its geodesic structure, one candleholder will throw a mass of interesting shadows in all directions, and multiple candleholders can be locked together to create a larger centerpiece. Born in Tunisia and raised in England, designer Tom Dixon has a reputation that frequently precedes him. His bad boy mystique – Dixon dropped out of art school following a motorcycle accident and spent time playing bass in a rock band – is intriguing when juxtaposed with his unmistakable talent and emergence as one of Englands most influential designers. Candle not included. Made in China. Materials: Laser-cut brass, stainless steel or black powder-coated stainless steel. Measurements:Diameter: 4.75"
