Apartment in East Melbourne by Flack Studio. Very famous photo for this lighting!

It’s true that the last period I’m very interested in lightings. With no particular reason..from the moment I created a board on Pinterest with lightings only I found myself collecting more and more pictures of them.From that moment, I started to pay extra notice on their design and I realized that a lot of my favorites were designed by Michael Anastassiades! And what a coincidence to be a Greek also!
All of his works are magnificent (oh the mirrors too) but his lightings are my favorites!! What I love the most on them is their eclectism, sophistication, how minimal and essential they are! Pieces of art, not just lightings. This style is my new favorite, it resembles a little with midcentury, don’t you think?

Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London[…]He has designed products with various leading manufacturers including FLOS, Lobmeyr and Svenskt Tenn. In 2007 he set up the company Michael Anastassiades Ltd to produce his signature pieces; a collection of lighting, furniture, jewellery, and tabletop objects.
He 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. He lives and works in London.

I hope you’ll enjoy them as also, tell me what do you think!
