The festivals of Hanukkah and Christmas seem to bring out a strong sense of unity in Israeli designer Sahar Batsry. Last year, after some time spent in New York, he produced Happy Holidays ($25, from www.amazon.com), a menorah that appears to bring the Jewish and Christian faiths together by representing the traditional branched candelabrum in the shape of a fir tree. “It gets decorated ‘on the go’ by dripping wax [from white candles], giving it the look of a tree in the snow,” Batsry explains.

This year he has been inspired by the flames at the heart of the Hanukkah ceremony.

In Flame (above, $120, from sahar@saharbatsry.com), nine tealight holders, which feature a single fold in high-grade stainless steel, are mounted on two rings, the circular form being symbolic of unity.
