Born in Cyprus, Michael Anastassiades originally graduated as a civil engineer, and founded his own studio in 1994, which created the interior decoration brand under his name in 2007. The works of Anastassiades balance on the border of industrial design and sculpture, often incorporating the surrounding space into the work of art itself. His geometric lamps, mirrors and accessories seem afloat in the space owing to the conscious use of light and shadow, shiny and matte materials, as well as reflective surfaces, and look more like works of plastic art rather than functional objects of use. Due to his individual approach, his uncompromising attitude in terms of quality, and his delicate minimalism, Anastassiades today works with architects like David Chipperfield or John Pawson, and cooperates with brands like Flos or Herman Miller. His works are on permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art, V&A, MAK Vienna and a number of other museums.
