Designed by the inimitable Michael Anastassiades, the Flos IC lighting range embodies an artistic, sculptural aesthetic, with minimalist features. The lamp’s sophisticated matt black frame is complimented by the opulent, warm glow of the spherical hand-blown diffuser, resulting in a piece that exudes luxury and visual elegance.
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.
