The Cypriot designer’s work in the world of lighting has created a new design vocabulary consisting of nouns with a very clear message. Like words, every one of the elements invented by Anastassiades over the years tells a unique, original story. Now the designer is expanding his compositional language by shifting his attention from spherical shapes in opaque glass (the focus of many collections) to pure lines. The series of pendant lamps presented at the last Euroluce Fair consist of forms anchored elegantly to the ceiling, reminiscent of pieces of fine jewellery. “Arrangements” is a modular system of geometric elements of light that can be combined differently to create multiple compositions of individual chandeliers. Each module is fixed to the previous one in a simple way, laid out in perfect balance, as an element of a light chain, which conducts the electric energy activating the LEDs.
