Designer Name: Yasha Heifetz
Style: Yasha Heifetz's (Not to be confused with violinist Jascha Heifetz) highly sought after lamps commonly featured 1950s' biomorphic design. The bases of his lighting fixtures often utilized stylized human figures, both male and female. Melon and kidney-shaped lamps, as well as pendant lights and decorative sconces were also a part of Heifetz's signature style.
Materials Used: Some of the Heifetz's popular lights were artistically styled lamps. They were made in a vast spectrum of materials from sheet metal, copper, brass, wood, ceramic, and more.
Specialized In: Lighting
Yasha Heifetz was a renowned sculptor and artist whose work expressed a lifelong passion for woodcarving. In 1938, Yasha Heifetz founded the Heifetz Manufacturing Company, which is based in New York. The company not only specialized in table lamps, but also manufactured metal and wooden sculptural objects, ashtrays, and other creative forms of furniture.
Since its inception, the company has produced thousands of pieces in its nearly three decade lifespan. About half of those products were accredited to Yasha Heifetz. Heifetz even received several patents for his furniture designs and developed new glazing methods for textured ceramic bases. He also built a full woodworking studio in his residence, which allowed him to spend time carving the sculptural elements that adorned many of the lamps sold in his shops.
Heifetz earned fame by manufacturing 10 award winning lamps for a lighting design competition held by the Museum of Modern Art in the 1950's. The competition received over 600 entries. His pieces were selected based on their style and creativity.
