Michael Anastassiades is a London-based Cypriot designer who deals with products, spatial interventions and experimental works, often transcending the distinctions between different fields of creativity. In a career of over 20 years, Anastassiades has conceived lights, furniture and objects characterized by a poetic but rigorous interpretation of technology, materials and functions.
His work draws inspiration from different sources and distils them into pure and simple structures: from nature to the archaic references of native Cyprus, from the history of modernism to very personal memories, to art and everyday life, a rich set of references is evoked. only to transform itself into a vocabulary of timeless forms.
Anastassiades' practice encompasses both industrial production and artisanal techniques, and in so doing expands into a vivid and nuanced balance between improvisation and structure, control and intuition.
