Captain Flint Floor Lamp
The Captain Flint floor lamp designed by Michael Anastassiades is sleek, graceful and quite versatile. A spinning cone diffuser provides direct light that can easily be repositioned. The weighted base is finished in white Carrara or black Marquina marble and complements the black painted steel or brushed brass available for the cone and stem. Its power cord features a foot dimmer switch with ON-OFF functions and 10-100% light adjustment.
Michael Anastassiades founded his London design studio in 1994. The Cypriot-born designer’s lighting, mirrors, and tabletop objects reside between industrial design, sculpture and decorative art. Deceptively simple, yet meticulously detailed, they betray his training as a civil engineer and industrial designer. He is particularly renowned for his lighting products, which comprise 80% of his studio’s commissions. Shiny surfaces combined with simple geometric shapes like tubes, oblongs, and spheres, articulate architectural spaces. He often chooses reflective materials – such as mirrored glass and polished bronze – that appear to dematerialize his objects, to float independently, interacting with the space surrounding them. His work is featured in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, and the V&A Museum and Crafts Council in London.
