Michael Anastassiades studio was launched in 1994, setting out to explore the notions of contemporary culture and aesthetics through product, furniture and environmental design. In perfect balance between fine arts and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. His creations are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of unexpected vitality.
Anastassiades' work is featured in permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Crafts Council, London and MAK, Vienna. His solo exhibitions include Time and Again at the Geymüllerchlössel/MAK, Vienna, To Be Perfectly Frank at Svenskt Tenn, Stockholm, Norfolk House Music Room at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Cyprus Presidency at the European Parliament, Brussels. He has designed products with leading manufacturers including FLOS, Svenskt Tenn and Lobmeyr.
In 2007, the company Michael Anastassiades ltd was established to produce his signature pieces; a collection of lighting, furniture, jewellery and tabletop objects.
