Glossy stem made of brass. And on top the 30-inch glass ball is located – in order to balance things, which protrudes on the top of the inclined shaft. Obviously unstable, opal ball looks as if it might escape, if it were a circus magician object or element in which the two fragments — the ball and the stem — magically balanced. IC Lights were created by the talented Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades (also available in a wall, table and hanging versions). Design lamps have a poetic finesse and visionary design quality that has always characterized the work of the Cypriot designer.
Anastassiades philosophy aims to create objects that can be a constant value, always on the verge of art. His projects are created with a philosophical and poetic overtones. And IC lamps are no exception.
However, Anastassiades never forgoes a meticulous search for materials and craftsmanship that endows each of his objects with a uniquely precious quality, as in the case of IC Lights with the choice of brushed brass or chrome.
The studio’s philosophy is a continuous search for eclecticism, individuality, and timeless qualities in design. Michael Anastassiades 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.
