lighting design by Michael Anastassiades


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.
