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.
