Designer Michael Anastassiades | London Design Festival | Tracey Neuls

Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. 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, the Craft Council in London and many more... (please see website)

In 2007 he set up the company Michael Anastassiades Ltd to produce his signature pieces; a collection of lighting, furniture, jewellery, and tabletop objects. 

The studio’s philosophy is a continuous search for eclecticism, individuality, and timeless qualities in design. Michael 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. He lives and works in London.

Michael Anastassiades has designed products with various leading manufacturers including FLOS, Lobmeyr and Svenskt Tenn.

Atrium have supplied the IC Light for Flos to be exhibited at Tracey Neuls

‘I focus on quality and craftsmanship – the way something is made, it has to make sense, it has to be beautiful in that way.’

Simplicity is paramount to Michael Anastassiades, in both work and life. The designer is known for his strikingly minimalist lights, but he is prolific in the areas of sculpture, furniture and objects, too – some of his creations are on display at galleries from London’s V&A to New York’s MoMA. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect. 

Anastassiades favours a stripped-back aesthetic in his work and personal style, devoid of branding and overly engineered elements – contrary to assumption perhaps, considering he trained as a civil engineer.
