Michael Anastassiades’ Mobile Chandelier collection is a stunning achievement in the tradition of minimalist design. Like drawings come to life, these fixtures are rooted in their care for subtle and decisive gestures. Expertly guiding our understanding of spatial awareness into an invigorating and generative ambiguity, these pieces move in between the second and third dimensions with ease. His work weaves together multi-dimensional narratives and surgically decisive colors into what is ultimately a brilliant and perspectival exercise in the momentum and precipitation of looking.
Michael Anastassiades is a Cypriot-born, London-based designer, known for his lithe yet commanding lighting structures. With its stark lines and simple geometric composition, Anastassiades’ pieces offer a playful, intellectual take on contemporary design. His lighting fixtures will often pair elemental shapes like cylinders, spheres, and tubes with more luxury, reflective materials – mirrors, crystal and polished bronze – creating a distinctive interplay, both widely imitated and highly sought-after.
