Cypriot born, London based lighting designer Michael Anastassiades has launched his new collection of linear brass lighting. Designed for Milan-based Nilufar Gallery,the range consists of eleven linear lights that pair handmade brass fittings with LED bulbs.
Known for his use of simple geometric shapes like tubes, oblongs and spheres, each and every of the lights come in different configurations. Chosen by Anastassiades for their “apparent effortlessness” and are crafted by a United kingdom machinist.
he bulbs and the brass rods are of the same diameter, and have been arranged to appear as “parallel repetitions” of 1 another.
While some lights hang on perpendicular cords, other people are floor standing and sit on circular bases that residence a central brass stem, or rest as horizontal rods stacked on leading of 1 an additional.
Bulbs are both a single metre or .five metres prolonged, and are organized singly, in pairs, or in trios, alongside the brass fixtures.
“When setting out on a new style, the intentions are by no means evident,” said Anastassiades, who previously made lamps strung on fine cables for Italian lighting brand Flos.
“But subconsciously, you end up creating one thing in which everything appears to be there for a cause. The proposed patterns are absolutely time and internet site particular,” he extra.
One Nicely-Acknowledged Sequence is Michael Anastassiades’ third lighting collection for Nilufar Gallery, and is getting exhibited in a former Camden garage from 12 to 17 October 2015. Anastassiades is set to convert the space into his studio above the next few months.
Over 100 years old, the painted-red concrete floor and blue walls from the space’s prior use as a garage have been purposefully left intact.
