London Design Festival 2015

London Design Festival 2015

Aram Store presents new work by Michael Anastassiades during The London Design Festival.  Launched at Euroluce 2015, the products will be shown as a collection for the first time in the UK.  Forms are geometrical balancing compositions which focus on the sphere.  Products are from the designer’s own manufactured collection and will also include pieces produced by Italian manufacturer Flos.

Amongst the new work is Mobile Chandeliers, a series which is a continuation of Anastassiades’ earlier designs from 2008.  Curved and linear forms in black lacquered brass partner with mouth blown opaline glass spheres.  Happy Together pendants come as single globe and brass rod or in groups of four or ten.  To the Top is one design in a series of table lamps which references the iconic MT8 or Bauhaus lamp by Carl Jacob Jucker and Wilhelm Wagenfeld.  The diffuser rests on a brass tripod base which gives the appearance of balancing blocks that are about to fall down.
