EXCLUSIVE IN IRELAND TO PORTER & JONES

Portrait of Michael Anastassiades by Helene Binet

The Cypriot-born, London-based engineer turned designer, Michael Anastassiades is counted as one of the most celebrated lighting names on the design scene right now. They’re so sought-after, in fact, they feature in permanent collections of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s V&A museum, among others.

The Tube Chandelier

The lights are super-minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of vitality. Just one sculptural Michael Anastassiades light can transform an entire room.

A lifelong quest for harmony and equilibrium means his lighting designs are a cross between fine art and design, with their play between geometric shapes and reflective materials, provoking dialogue and celebration in whatever space they occupy.

A DESIGN FOR LIFE

Cabinetry crafted to span generations

Porter & Jones appreciate detail. We are traditionalists, committed to the craft of making bespoke kitchens and furniture in our workshop. We make our hand crafted cabinetry, the old fashioned way, by hand. Our focus is to create high quality, exquisitely designed cabinetry.

Our skilled and dedicated cabinetmakers and designers work together to create something special for each client.

In our workshop we have large format project boards, showing each project’s plan and elevation designs noting the specific finishes and designs. Even the smallest details are considered. Front facing dovetailing, mortise and tenon jointing makes each door superbly strong. Our cabinetry is built to last. We have a beautiful range of leather hides and an assortment of luxurious Donegal tweeds that we can use to line select drawer bases for ease of maintenance and hygiene.

Solid timber inserts in a mix of exquisitely hand picked timbers from walnut, to oak to Irish ash. Larders and laundries, sculleries and pantries; bathroom cabinets and wardrobes, crafted from the best possible timber materials and infused with a unique sense of style.

We hope you enjoy fine detailing as much as we do.
