After being schooled in industrial design and engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in London, Michael Anastassiades founded his own studio in 1994. His work falls somewhere in between the industrial and sculptural, especially his lighting, which consists of reflective materials such as polished aluminum and opal glass in simple geometric shapes. Anastassiades’ pieces can be found in hotels, restaurants and shops worldwide, including the SoHo House New York, the Grand Hôtel Stockholm and Sergio Rossi boutiques. His Tip of the Tongue Table Lamp (2013) consists of a hand-blown opal glass globe perched off-center on a polished solid brass base, which can be left to develop a beautiful patina over time or treated to maintain its sheen with regular care. Includes an in-line on-off switch in its cord. Bulb (included): 120V/40W/G9 frosted halogen. Made in the U.K.
