BAL­ANC­ING ACT

Malaysia Tatler Homes - - STYLE -

Less is more for Michael Anas­tas­si­ades, the Lon­don-based light­ing de­signer whose cre­ations stand out for its sim­plic­ity and in­ge­nu­ity. It’s al­most cer­tain that you’ve en­coun­tered one of his strik­ing lamps in a restau­rant, ho­tel or bou­tique; the light­ing de­signer du jour’s cre­ations il­lu­mi­nate the in­te­ri­ors of the Grand Ho­tel Stock­holm, Soho House in New York as well as all the Ser­gio Rossi bou­tiques to name a few. Once you see an Anas­tas­si­ades piece, you’d be hard pressed to for­get it, as his new­est col­lec­tion for Flos em­pha­sises the power of es­sen­tial­ist de­sign. Called Ar­range­ments, the light­ing sculp­ture is akin to min­i­mal­ist jew­ellery. The fo­cus lies solely on form, with the de­signer string­ing to­gether shapes that ap­pear to float in a per­fect bal­anc­ing act. Best yet? As a mod­u­lar col­lec­tion, users can come up with the com­bi­na­tions them­selves al­low­ing for both flex­i­bil­ity and cre­ativ­ity.
