Michael Anastassiades talks about his new lamps

Jun 27, 2022

June 26, 2022 There he is Michael Anastassiades , in what is perhaps his best interpretation: light, part of his work that earned him the Compasso d’Oro award. This time the stage is that of 3daysofdesign in Copenhagen, where Scandinavian brands (and not only) have finally shown the result of those projects suspended due to pandemics, together with those that have been a direct consequence of them. Like the two families of floor lamps ta-ke and Relay, signed by the Cypriot-born designer based in Londonseen as a sort of anticipation in his first Italian solo show during Milano Design Week 2021, e that have not lost an ounce of the lightness of the prototypes. Anastassiades worked with simple bamboo sticksprecious materials such as marble Black Marquina or white Carrara, a luminous immaterial body and little else for two slender collections of lamps in different shapes and sizes, presented as sculptures in an industrial space on the water in the Danish capital. What lamps are these? Two new series designed for my brand and, for the first time, we present a product ready for the market. I decided to do it here instead of in Milan because this year there was no Euroluce (biennial section of the Salone dedicated to light, ed) and I was already committed to this event. They are born around the same light source, this bulb developed specifically by our studio. A fantastic technology because we have achieved a thin section that does not exist on the market and allows a uniform 360 degree illumination with warm light, fully dimmable. The choice of material combination for the Relay floor lamp? The concept was to have these two supports in Nero Marquina and Bianco Carrara marble that form the base on which the light tube is simply attached via a magnetic system. The idea is that in the future the light source can be easily removed and replaced with other types of lighting body. Relay floor lamp by Michael Anastassiades with marble base. Photo courtesy of Michael Anastassiades The ta-ke are instead a rediscovery of what was anticipated in the September salon … I wanted keep all the different craft techniques that I explored during the lockdown, and the essence of the lamps I had built by hand in my studio. Using bamboo, simplified connections, the cue mechanism holding back: I wanted these reduced elements to communicate the same idea in a more accessible way. In fact, these lights really seem to be made of nothing … Just plant the bamboo and wait for it to grow to the right diameter, which is related to that of the light tube. You decide the height so that the knot is closed. It is a light bulb that “negotiates” with nature. The poetry is still there, the gesture too, distilled with pure, simple and accessible language. And they have lost none of the lightness of installation at the ICA. I’m glad to note: it took a lot of effort, without compromise, to capture the same spirit. Light seems to be definitely his passion … Surely, also because I started from that, in 2007, with my brand, which has been my platform of expression for many years, my creature despite the numerous collaborations, for example, with Flos. I never imagined what it would become today. At the beginning I thought that I had to be where everyone exhibited, therefore Euroluce in Milan, with difficulties in accessing it due to the great demand for a place in the event. I remember I started with my catalog, which had three or four products, and they told me it was late; it was already November, so it was impossible for the following April. I insisted on showing my works and, after five minutes, I had the space, albeit small, in a secondary corridor. There I met Piero Gandini from Flos for the first time who wanted to meet me. (Just in conjunction with 3daysofdesign, Anastassiades announced that Gandini will be involved in product development as an advocate for his personal brand. A long creative partnership between the two, therefore, briefly interrupted in 2019 when Gandini left the management of the lighting company founded by his father in 1962, but obviously destined to continue, ed). Why did you decide to self-produce these two new collections? My brand has always been my passion, on which I decided to focus even more. Producing yourself also allows more freedom on every decision. Your impression of the last Salone? Despite the lack of Asians and some Americans, people were happy to come back, meet, celebrate, physically experience things; in a different way from before but with the same intensity. We also need to change the way we work: many brands have realized that they cannot present a product at a trade show and market it a year or two later. Living © RESERVED REPRODUCTION
