The Menorah is a traditional symbol of Chanukah, and is lit to commemorate the miracle of one day’s oil burning for eight days. The flickering flames share the message that a little light can chase away a lot of darkness.

Our 24 ft. tall Menorah was designed by The Detroit Design Center, which is owned and operated by two brothers, Erik and Israel Nordin.

The Nordin Brothers have been working together designing sculpture and functional art since 2000 as the Detroit Design Center. Israel Nordin received his bachelor’s degree in art from the College of Creative Studies in Detroit. Erik Nordin received his bachelor in music from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Their art includes metalwork, blown glass, wood and other media.

The brothers design and build a wide variety or artistic structures and concentrate on creating one-of-a-kind pieces. They offer sculpture, furniture, railings, gate, lighting and other interior design services, specializing in modern designs for homes, restaurants, clubs, businesses, offices, lofts and other interior spaces. The Nordin brothers have collectively won seven Detroit Home Magazine Design Awards.

Their work can be seen at locations such as Quicken Loans, The Madison Theater, Mosaic Restaurant, Chen Chow, Plum Market, Vinology, 24 Grill, Ronin Sushi, Duo and a host of other area businesses and private homes.
