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
