Upcycle design is about giving a discarded or old object or material a second life, a new function. And at upcycleDZINE I’m trying to show you what upcycle design is all about. Today’s featured design is more about giving an old object the same function, but in a different setting. So is this upcycling? That’s up to you, but I think It’s very nice design that surely deserves your attention.
If you are a regular visitor of flea markets and thrift stores you are familiar with the fact that candlesticks often are found as a single item. Most of the time people tend to look for pairs, but you will not find a second matching piece. And here comes a wonderful solution for that problem.
Candlesticks come together in one piece
The design is called Menorah and is designed by Reddish, a design studio based in Jaffa | Israel. A Menorah is a Jewish candelabrum used as a symbol of unity since biblical times. “The united candlesticks holder is made of old candlesticks from around the world. These rescued candlesticks, which once played an important part in different family ceremonies, are now reused and united to form a candelabrum.”

Reddish was founded in 2002 by industrial designers Naama Steinbock and Idan Friedman. Both born in 1975, graduated with distinction from H.I.T (Holon Academic Institute of Technology), Israel. “The different parts of the Menorah now share their life stories while creating new stories together.”
Seven different candlesticks come together in one candelabra, resulting in a very intriguing upcycle design piece mixing all these beautiful shapes.
