Look, a modern menorah

What’s the latest “it” item in home interiors? The designer Hanukkah menorah, of course. This year, in honour of the centennial of the Jewish Museum in New York, Canadian designer Karim Rashid created the “Menoramorph,” a silicone menorah in his signature bold, curvaceous style—available in hot pink, lime and blue (above, US$50). Famed New York ceramicist Jonathan Adler recently added a menorah to his modernist, multicoloured “Pop” collection (US$98). And, for those with particularly expensive taste, New York-based interior designer Adam D. Tihany has come up with a sleek, asymmetrical menorah produced by Christofle Silver (US$1,150). Candles not included.
