Michael Anastassiades was the choice for the designer of the year at the next edition of Maison et Objet.

Milan Design Agenda will be introducing you to the work and career of this incredible designer who happens to be a familiar presence at the bespoke Parisian event.

Michael Anastassiades founded his studio in London in 1994. He had a unique and varied background in academics, seen that he trained as a civil engineer at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine and afterwards he took a masters degree in industrial design at the Royal College of Art.

Lights are a source of warmth, and what fascinates me most is the glow”

Lighting was always a pertinent factor to the designer. He was always drawn to this type of furniture early on, for its poetic qualities. As a matter of fact, Michael Anastassiades had the luck that during his professional journey he cooperated with FLOS. This allowed him to gain new experience and embrace new challenges, something he continued doing after creating his own brand.

“It takes a lot of effort to make something look simple

“To design a light one first has to embrace the darkness”

More than a lighting fan, Michael Anastassiades is also a fan of timeless elements in his creations. There’s a misleading simplicity that defines his projects, as well as his idea that one should surround him or herself with objects that will last a very long time.

There’s a tactic associated with the creation of lighting that is very much a personal one for Michael Anastassiades. Whenever he’s creating a new lamp, he takes into consideration that a lamp is off 80% of the time it’s placed on the decor of a home. In his vision, a lamp is never an isolated object because it has to interact with its environment.
