Emerging Designer: Brad Ascalon

Modern Decor

Brad Ascalon’s been making waves for those in the design know for some time now, but we feel like he’s finally starting to get some mainstream attention lately, and so we’re featuring him in today’s Emerging Design post. Also, his work is spectacular.

After opening up his studio, Brad Ascalon Studio NYC in 2006, Brad immediately set to work designing for his first big client, just a little cosmetics company called L’Oreal. Specializing in furniture design, packaging, consumer products, environment design development and even fancy and site-specific sound compositions and art projects, Brad and his studio have come a long way since 2006.

His work has shown at Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Paris’ Maison d’Object and Germany’s IMM Cologne. He’s completed a a line for Ligne Roset called Spindle. You may have seen his work in such magazines as New York TimesWallpaper*, Architectural Digest and Interior Design.

So why are we putting such an obviously talented and decorated designer under the “emerging designer” moniker? Because if you haven’t heard of this guy yet, we wanted to make sure you had every opportunity to know his work!

What are your favorite pieces from Brad Ascalon’s portfolio of work? Had you heard of him before this post? Do you have any suggestions of designers who would be perfect for this weekly Emerging Designer post? Let us know in the comments!

    The red’ish chairs at the top are fantastical in proportion.

      Oh I know! I mean, in a way they are incredibly simplistic, but you can tell they’re proportions were considered to the most scientific detail to create a wholely unique and fabulous piece of furniture.

      That comment makes absolutely no sense. Wannabe what, exactly?

        Hah! I had the same question. I like his work a lot! Though, I did write the post so I guess I’m biased…
