IC F2 floor lamp

By Flos

£760.00

  • Description

    This collection explores balance. There is a series of lights: table lights, wall lights, ceiling pendants and ceiling mounted lights which take as their basic form a sphere that is perfectly balanced on the edge of a rod.

    "I came across an online video clip of a contact juggler. He was spinning a set of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers. And as I got mesmerized by the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. I wanted to capture that exact moment. This was my starting point." Michael Anastassiades

    The initials IC come from the codes that English police use to define the perceived ethnicity of a person they stop in the street when reporting back to the station. IC1 means white person or Northern European type, IC2 means Mediterranean European/Hispanic, IC3 indicates an African/Afro-Caribbean person, and so on, so this is a playful story to define the different designs.

    Michael Anastassiades

    Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics though product, furniture and environmental design. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction. He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane yet full of a vitality one might not expect. Anastassiades' work is featured in permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the V&A Museum and Crafts Council, London and MAK, Vienna. Recent solo exhibitions include Time and Again at the Geymüllerchlössel/MAK, Vienna, To be Perfectly Frank at Svenskt Tenn, Stockholm, Norfolk House Music Room at the V&A, London and the Cyprus Presidency at the European Parliament, Brussels. He has designed products with leading manufacturers including FLOS, Puiforcat, Svenskt Tenn and Lobmeyr. In 2007 he set up MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES the company to produce his signature pieces, a collection of lighting, furniture, jewellery and tabletop objects.
