LIGHTING ‘ ARRANGEMENTS’ BY MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES FOR FLOS
London-based Anastassiades is known for his spherical lighting designs in opaque glass ( the focus of previous collections), but now his attention has shifted to the possibilities of pure lines. ‘Arrangements’, first presented at last year’s Euroluce Fair, consists of modular, interchangeable forms, each hanging from the other, like pieces of an elegant necklace. Indeed, Anastassiades talks of jewellery as an inspiration. ‘It is no coincidence that the word pendant has a double meaning, existing both as a chain worn round the neck, and a light designed to hang from the ceiling,’ he points out. The shapes that make up ‘Arrangements’ each feature an LED strip that produces a soft glow, and can be combined to create chandeliers. £2,370, Heal’s ( heals.com; flos.com).
