Michael Anastassiades’ fascination with shape and geometry, especially the spherical form, helped to produce the wonderful Get Set Table Lamp; a luminaire with a classic, sophisticated design suited to a number of different aesthetics, as well as providing a subtle ambient light which is dispersed through the expertly crafted opaline glass diffuser.
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.
