    Karim Rashid brings a groovy spin to a traditional ritual object

    There certainly seems to be a million and a half ways to trim a self-expressive, funky Christmas tree. But when it comes to menorahs, face it, modern style just seems to have taken an 8-day leave.

    What’s a style-hungry fashionista looking for something in the way of Chanukah-lite lights to do?

    Thank acclaimed industrial designer Karim Rashid for designing, Menorahmorph, an aesthically groovy menorah with mondo design that’s more than within your reach– Hanukkah for the twenty-first century! Commissioned by The Jewish Museum in honor of its centennial, Menorahmorph brings a groovy spin to a traditional ritual object.

    Finally, our quest has been answered to find a modern menorah. Now do you think there will ever be a dreidel to drool over?
