Our sold-out monograph on the acclaimed designer is back with an all-new, specially designed soft cover!
Originally published in 2019, this was the first book to celebrate the work of acclaimed designer Michael Anastassiades and takes an exhibition held earlier that year as a starting point for exploring his approach to design. There, carefully laid out displays—things that Michael had unearthed in nature or sourced from his own collections—formed a constellation of objects and a syntax of ‘things that go together’. This book might be considered yet one more layer in this universe of objects and meaning.
Together with photos of the exhibition, a collection of essays reflects on Anastassiades’s early years in Cyprus, the influence of its natural environment and local artistic figures, his interest in exploring the psychological connection that humans share with the objects around them, and his appreciation of form and scale, but also unpredictability, in nature and design.
Texts by Alessandro Rabottini, Elena Parpa, Emily King, Mario García Torres, Michael Anastassiades, Yiannis Toumazis, and Zoë Ryan. Text editor: Alessandro Rabottini. Photography by Osma Harvilahti.
