or Call to Order

The Paral­lel Struc­ture Table, designed by Michael Anas­tas­si­ades for B&B Italia, show­cases a mini­mal­ist and essen­tial design concept. It consists of two impos­ing aluminum bars connected by side supports, forming a visu­ally strik­ing object. The pursuit of extreme simplic­ity is comple­mented by inno­v­a­tive tech­ni­cal solu­tions, exem­pli­fy­ing the table’s design philosophy.

Atten­tion to detail is evident in the precise joins, the balance between clean lines and struc­tural elements, and the harmo­nious inte­gra­tion of differ­ent mate­ri­als. The legs are crafted from solid wood, while the side supports elegantly connect the colored aluminum bars. The collec­tion offers two table sizes and tops in various mate­ri­als, includ­ing Canaletto walnut and four vari­ants of oak: light, grey, black, and smoked.

Expe­ri­ence the capti­vat­ing allure of the Paral­lel Struc­ture table, where form and func­tion harmo­nize in perfect balance.


Michael Anastassiades


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.
