Michael Anastassiades

We kick off the 2020 interviews with my first guest - designer Michael Anastassiades. Michael shares with me his creative journey with the 80s as a starting point of our conversation - the time when Michael studied both engineering and design and wasn't satisfied with either. Things changed in the early 90s when Michael got his house on London Waterloo's Lower Marsh and started to split his time between teaching art, designing "psychological" objects and... being a yoga instructor. The decades that followed saw him grow to become one of the most loved lighting designers, creating minimalist pieces through his own studio practice as well as collaborating with renowned brands such as FLOS.  You will love Michael's story, his humble manner, and fascination with creativity. Presented by Justyna Green Music and production by James Green
