Captain Flint Outdoor

c. 2015

for Flos

With water­proof mate­ri­als and finishes in new colors, Captain Flint Outdoor is built to with­stand envi­ron­men­tal condi­tions. This dual-purpose floor lamp is a rendi­tion of the indoor Captain Flint, both designed by Michael Anas­tas­si­ades in 2015. The elegant, conical diffuser rotates in 8 differ­ent posi­tions. The light­ing beam can be pointed down for a direct light or against a wall for a refresh­ing ambi­ence halo. The sophis­ti­cated circu­lar base of Captain Flint is in marble or Italian stone, includ­ing lava stone of Sicily and travertino impe­ri­ale stone of Tuscany, giving the design a natural, refined taste, in harmony with the colors and mate­ri­al­ity of the outdoor spaces.

Michael Anastassiades

Cyprus (1967)

Born in Cyprus, London-based designer Michael Anastassiades is known for creating furniture, lighting, and accessories that merge stark forms with interesting, eye-catching details. His popular lighting designs often incorporate simple shapes like cylinders, spheres, and tubes elevated by the addition of mirrors, crystal, and polished metal. His work is fundamentally clean-lined, functional, and easy to comprehend, making it suitable for countless interior arrangements. At the same time, his designs’ beautiful lines and clever compositions make them stand out as works of art. Products like his IC Lights collection for FLOS, inspired by the movement of a contact juggler, demonstrate Anastassiades’s ability to create exceptional designs from the most seemingly simple foundations.

After studying civil engineering and industrial design in London, Anastassiades launched his eponymous studio in 1994. Since then, he’s collaborated with leading design houses, such as FLOS, Lobmeyr, Svenskt Tenn, and Herman Miller, as well as cultural tastemakers across the artistic spectrum, such as fashion designer Hussein Chalayan, Paris boutique Colette, architects David Chipperfield and John Pawson, and interior design firm Studio Isle. In 2007, he established Michael Anastassiades Ltd. to produce his own signature pieces.
