As the work of designer Michael Anastassiades proves, simple is not necessarily easy. The aesthetic shared by the tabletop objects, furniture, jewellery and lighting born in his London studio is achieved through a process of paring down an object to its essence. This design approach is not merely a process of reduction — a minimalism for its own sake — but rather, an exploration of proportion, materiality, and the overall physical presence of an object as it relates to its user as well as its place and time.
