Michael Anastassiades

Michael Anastassiades is a Cypriot designer, based in London. He 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. In 1994 he launched his studio to explore the contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design.

Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. He creates objects that are minimal and utilitarian, yet full of a vitality one might not expect. Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections of many museums, among them the MoMa in New York, the Victoria and Albert museum and the MAK in Vienna. Recent solo exhibitions include “Time And Again” at the Geymüllerschlössel/MAK in Vienna, “To Be Perfectly Frank” at Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm, an installation at the Norfolk House music room at the Victoria & Albert museum in London, a project to celebrate the Cyprus Presidency at the European Parliament in Brussels.

He has designed products for various leading manufacturers including B&B Italia and Flos. In 2007 he set up the Michael Anastassiades production company creating a collection of lighting, furniture, jewellery and tabletop objects. The studio’s philosophy is a continuous search for eclecticism, individuality and timeless qualities in design.
