Michael Anastassiades’ love of industrial simplicity infuses this elegant pendant light. “IC” stands for Identity Code, part of the evaluation of immigrants to the UK, bringing a commanding contemporary dimension to the design. The blown opaline glass diffuser seems to float from an angled wand of brass-finished steel in a captivating aesthetic juggling act. It offers an evenly diffused glow suspended over a kitchen table or in an entryway. Installation required. Made in Italy. Both the designer and the manufacturer, Flos, are represented in MoMA’s collection.
Trained in industrial design and engineering at London's Royal College of Art and Imperial College, Michael Anastassiades launched his London design studio in 1994. He has collaborated with many respected design firms and architects, including Studio Mumbai, David Chipperfield, and John Pawson, and his distinctive lighting designs grace spaces from Stockholm to New York. Anastassiades is known for selecting reflective materials like mirrored glass and polished bronze that interact with the space surrounding his lights, appearing to dematerialize them. His work has been included in six of the Museum’s exhibitions, including Safe: Design Takes on Risk (2005-06), Design and the Elastic Mind (2008), and A Collection of Ideas (2014-15).
