Inspired by the work of street performers and the mesmerizing motion in which contact jugglers skillfully spin orbs on their bodies, the Flos IC C/W2 Outdoor Light takes sculptural art and contemporary design and fuses it into a perfectly balanced source of light. Rich in materials and exquisite craftsmanship, its geometric profile is crafted from steel and opal blown-glass and is available in a range of striking colourways. Adapting flawlessly to a vast range of exteriors, its opal diffuser distributes a gentle glow and is ideally utilised in a garden, creating a tranquil ambience. Part of the Flos IC collection.
Positioned between fine art and design, Michael Anastassiades creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect.
He launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design. 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.
