MEZUZAH BY IRMA ORENSTEIN & LALIQUE
Irma Orenstein is the name and peerless talent behind an impressive collection of exclusive residential properties in Israel and overseas. Located in Tel Aviv, the Irma Orenstein Architecture & Interior Design Studio was established in 2002, and has been an inspirational force for almost 20 years. Irma specializes in providing architectural and design services to prestigious apartments, penthouses, and luxury buildings, as well as many unique commercial projects. She thoroughly searched for the perfect mezuzah to add to her projects, from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, without ever finding the right one.
From this collaboration with Lalique appeared a meaningful object: the crystal mezuzah captivates with its curved lines that catch the light. While it is produced at the Lalique Manufacture in Wingen-sur-Moder Alsace, its design comes from Tel Aviv. Irma Orenstein, an Israeli architect and designer, imagined and designed it, wishing to create a unique mezuzah that beautifully conveys the cultural symbolism associated with this sacred object. Irma finds her inspiration in her traditions. Born in Georgia in a world of crystal, snow and reflections, and later growing up in the desert, she wanted to combine both worlds. For her, the mezuzah represents Home. This collaboration was born from the desire to melt faith and art together. The purity of the satin finish and repolished crystal associated to the brilliance of the frame finely engraved with specific signs, make this protective guardian an exceptional piece.
The Mezuzah has been created in clear crystal with either a nickel or gilt finish. It is also available in two different sizes.
