A designer who creates work with an enduring quality by focusing on proportion, the honest use of materials, and the physical presence of an object. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 followed by his eponymous brand in 2007. In the years since, the company has produced a desired and unique collection of lighting, furniture, and objects. This has led to many successful collaborations with brands such as FLOS, Puiforcat, Lobmeyr, and the Swedish design institution Svenskt Tenn.

Created with an underlying logic that alludes to encapsulation and protection, these objects establish a simultaneously contrasting and symbiotic connection between the different stones used.
