Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics
through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design.
Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane yet full of a vitality one might not expect.
Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. His clients and patrons include Rosenthal, Swarovski and Hussein Chalayan. His pieces also feature prominently in landmark interiors including Soho House New York and the Grand Hotel Stockholm.
Michael trained as a civil engineer at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine before taking a masters degree in industrial design at the Royal College of Art.
He lives and works in London.
