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 firm..so 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?
Some bio information, from his site: Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design[…]He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect. 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.
And after all these photos (sorry for the number of them, I just couldn’t choose less!!) some environments to see how these magnificent lightings interact with interior space. I hope you’ll enjoy them as also, tell me what do you think!
