Arrangements by Michael Anastassiades for Flos

In a spectacular lighting installation, London-based, Cypriot-born designer Michael Anastassiades, celebrated the launch of his new collection of chandelier 'Arrangements'. I had a sneak peek during Milan Design week in this beautiful space near the Flos store.' Arrangements is a modular system of geometric LED elements that can be combined in multiple compositions as single or even connected chandeliers. 

The modules are easily fixed together electrically and mechanically, balancing perfectly on each other to create the dramatic effect of a big chain of light. Each combination can be changed any time, with a different order, type or quantity of elements, with no need of technical assistance. CHeck out the different shapes as pictured below and how to combine them at Flos


“I have always been fascinated with the parallel that exists between Lighting and Jewelry. Starting from the simple fact of how each piece relates to the human scale: one is designed to be worn on the body whereas the other is made to decorate the space someone occupies. I’m challenged in how the delicate nature of something small can be translated spatially and still manage to retain its preciousness in the way materials are presented. It is no coincidence that the word ‘pendant’ has a double meaning. Existing both as a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn round the neck, and a light designed to hang from the ceiling.” – Michael Anastassiades
