Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994, seeking to explore culture and aesthetics in designing products, furniture, and environments. In each of his designs, Anastassiades attempts to provoke participation and dialogue. His objects are minimal, functional, and simple, while also full of life. His work is featured in permanent collections at the MoMA, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Craft Council in London, FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, and the MAK in Vienna. Anastassiades has designed products for notable design teams, including FLOS, Lobmeyr, and Svenskt Tenn. He established his eponymous company Michael Anastassiades Ltd in 2007 to produce some of his signature pieces, including a lighting collection, furniture, jewelry, and tabletop objects. Anastassiades focuses on blending the timeless and eclectic in his product design, creating distinctive objects that endure over time.
