Designer Focus: Brad Ascalon
The original Mirror Puzzle was a not-so-standard jigsaw—Wong substituted reflective pieces for standard printed cardboard. Ascalon’s black-and-brass stained glass evolves the thoughtful concept.
Join Senior Editor Kelsey Keith for a conversation with designer Brad Ascalon, who will touch on his family's design legacy and how his position as a third-generation designer has informed his aesthetic sensibilities. Ascalon, featured in Dwell's October 2013 issue, will share archival images of his grandfather and father's decorative work alongside his own recent furnishings for such companies as Stylex, Juniper, Gaia & Gino, NWBLK, Ligne Roset and Design Within Reach. Followed by refreshments.
