The successful collections designed by Michael Anastassiades to give light to indoor environments are now taken outside, in the floor models. IC Outdoor and Captain Flint have been adjusted in the materials, finishes and technological waterproof engineering to meet the expected requirements for outdoor lighting fixtures.
Daylight can be simulated in a very technical way or artificial light can be accessed intimately with a domestic and warm appearance." - Vincent Van Duysen 📷 @verlindejanphotography
I’ve always been someone who was creatively engaged in drawing, crafting, and everything involving image, dance and movement. From early on it was clear I was not born to become a scientist. - Vincent Van Duysen 📷 @verlindejanphotography
In the original model of Snoopy, the switch was housed in the marble base together with an electronic dimmer to adjust the brightness of the light, an innovative feature at the time. Today the lamp is switched on/off and the brightness adjusted from 0 to 100% with a dimmer touch sensor. - Snoopy by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Lamps are designed to illuminate the world with brightness, but also with the intimacy of shadow. The relationship humans have with light transcends a functional dimension and is elevated to an emotional one: discover WireRing by Formafantasma and the technology behind its essential design.
"The interesting thing with lighting design, is that the project is not so much about the design of the object, but rather the design of the light itself. Being able to work with such an abstract material is certainly one of the most interesting and fascinating things." - Forrmafantasma
This ingenious floor lamp is one of the most imitated design icons ever and there are several versions of how it came to be designed. But in fact this visionary synthesis of genius, simplicity and perfection, designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962, was simply in response to the need for a suspension lamp that could shine its light on a table without requiring holes to be drilled in the ceiling. - Arco by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni 📷 @nesterova_yuliya
"I think one of the most beneficial things we see about the Running Magnet is that availability to reconfigure spaces, you can add the spotlights to the strips you can change what may be an ambiently lit space to something that is very moody and dramatic with spotlights over tables or spotlights on an artwork." - Dot Dash - Brian & Christopher Cheap - Dot Dash flos.com/stories/flos-studios-dot-dash
“Is the lighting a calming element? Something that excites people? Is it something that makes this space more dramatic or dynamic? Or is that something that calms it down and makes it simpler and more of a backdrop to whatever activity is going on inside?” - Dot Dash - Brian & Christopher Cheap - Dot Dash
Anastassiades’ designs often emphasize the interaction and dialogue between light design and its spatial and social surrounding: such is the driving spirit behind the installation of Michael Anastassiades for Goshka Macuga’s exhibition ‘Stairway to Nowhere’. - w/ @michaelanastassiades 📷 Raimund Zakowski Courtesy of Kestner Gesellschaft
Flos and Michael Anastassiades create a special String Light installation for Goshka Macuga’s ‘Stairway to Nowhere’ exhibition, on stage at leading art association Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus. - w/ @michaelanastassiades 📷 Raimund Zakowski Courtesy of Kestner Gesellschaft
