“Working with light” Michael Anastasiades
Designer Michael Anastassiades creates work with an enduring quality by focusing on proportion, the honest use of materials, and the physical presence of an object. Positioned between fine art and industrial design, his pieces exist between that which is utilitarian in its function, whilst poetic and enigmatic in its presence.
Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Crafts Council in London, the FRAC Centre in Orleans France, the MAK in Vienna and Art Institute of Chicago. Recent solo exhibitions include Time And Again at the Geymüllerschlössel/MAK in Vienna, To Be Perfectly Frank at Svenskt Tenn in
Stockholm, Norfolk House music room at the Victoria & Albert museum in London, Cyprus Presidency at the European Parliament in Brussels Belgium, Atelier Jesper Brussels. He has designed products with various leading manufacturers including Flos, Herman Miller, Salvatori, Puiforcat, B&B Italia, Cassina, Fantini, Lobmeyr, Dansk Møbelkunst and Svenskt Tenn.
Founding his London-based studio in 1994, followed by his eponymous brand in 2007, Michael Anastassiades has since produced a celebrated collection of lighting, furniture, and objects that demonstrate the studio’s continuous search for eclecticism, individuality and timelessness.
Anastassiades trained as a civil engineer at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine before taking a masters degree in industrial design at the Royal College of Art.
