Michael Anastassiades' fascination with shape is evident through his series of sculptural table lamps, the Rest Table Lamp being no exception. A sophisticated satin brass finish adds a refined quality to this luminaire; enabling it to perfectly suit a range of different aesthetics, while providing subtle ambience and a delicate atmosphere.
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.
