Michael Anastassiades from David Village Lighting

Michael Anastassiades launched his London based design studio in 1994 and has designed products for various leading brands including several iconic lights for Flos. In 2007, he set up his own design brand, Michael Anastassiades Ltd, to produce his own signature collections of lighting, furniture, jewellery, and tabletop objects. 

Michael Anastassiades’ design philosophy is to preserve the inherent qualities of materials through the use of natural finishes, exposed to the elements without any protective lacquer. At the heart of his work is a pursuit of timelessness - “What makes an object survive time?” he wonders. “Can an object become more beautiful as it ages?” Positioned between fine art and design, the Michael Anastassiades lighting collection aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. He creates objects that are minimal, yet full of vitality one might not expect.

Formally trained as a civil engineer at Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine in London, Anastassiades went on to study industrial design at the Royal College of Art. Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections globally including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the MAK in Vienna.

New advancements in flos technology - there is now an app for the string lighting collection designed by Michael Anastassiades. This allows the light’s intensity to be operated via mobile phone as a tv remote control. The string range is already a very customisable fitting, it can be suspended upon ‘strings’ in whichever way works best within an environment and its inhabitants. This app has added to its user friendly customisation by allowing remote dimming control to any number of string lights, through this free app available on Apple and Android.

Set up is simple, as long as the light is plugged in or switched on, the remote app will pick up its presence. After selecting the model of string light present the app keeps track of those lights and become instantly versatile to the users needs. The new app also gives additional information about the lighting range, suggestions of ways in which to display a string light and guides on how to install the item effectively.
