Kinetic Lights

These fascinating lamps were created by London based designer Michael Anastassiades. The configuration of each chandelier changes as its various parts move at the joints. Each piece has a different span, depending on the amplitude of the moving segments. Made from black patinated plated brass and mouth blown glass, these objects balance between fine art and design. Minimal and utilitarian, subtle and full of vitality, they call for participation and interaction…

Anastassiades’ work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. These particular lamps were spotted at the Moss gallery, New York’s design mecca, which closes its doors later this month.
