In the family “Happy Together”, vertical brass, nickel, or black patinated rods carry a group of glass globes. “I have always been fascinated with the sphere for its purity as the ultimate primal form. The design of these series started as a simple exercise of repetition, arranging them in perfect stacks or clusters in an evolving logical sequence. The family is inspired by unusual fictitious ball configurations in precision and cue sports while at the same time making references to the disciplined geometrical language used in modernist design.”
Globe: H 3.2" (Canopy: W 10.3" x H 1")
Pendant rod length is made to order. Upon confirmation of your order, we will contact you for overall drop length, measured from the ceiling to bottom of fixture.
About Michael Anastassiades
Trained in civil engineering and then industrial design, London-based artist Michael Anastassiades established his studio in 1994 and has since been producing pieces that are both technologically advanced and beautifully designed. Though at first glance they might appear merely utilitarian, his objects—many of them lit— are in fact stunningly detailed and rigorously proportioned: the glass is free blown, the metal finishes are bespoke. His work is in the permanent collections of museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Cypriot, b. 1967, based in London, United Kingdom
