Love Me, Love Me Not

Dining Tables
The stone is the star of the show in these tables designed by Michael Anastassiades with the specific intention of highlighting the opulence of the marbles chosen for his collection ‘Love Me, Love Me Not’. In the words of the designer, “I wanted to use regal colours which conveyed a sense of the grandiose, through the sumptuousness that is associated with marble. Simultaneously, I didn’t want to overwhelm the eye, so it was necessary to strike a balance between this lavishness and the functionality and of lightness of the tables.” Instead of the highly polished look often associated with marble, the designer chose a matte finish so as to bring a more contemporary touch to the stone, highlighting their specific qualities through this subdued process.

Design Story

Michael Anastassiades

Michael Anastassiades

Michael Anastassiades founded his London design studio in 1994. Schooled in industrial design and engineering at London's Royal College of Art and Imperial College – 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.

Anastassiades 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 dematerialise his objects, to float independently, interacting with the space surrounding them.

AVENUE ROAD carries a curated assortment of Michael Anastassiades pieces.
