Less Is More: The Design of Michael Anastassiades

“Authenticity is absent in our lives and from design, for sure.” Harsh? Maybe. Typically Michael Anastassiades? Absolutely. The London-based designer isn’t one to react to trends or get caught-up in the world of social media. As demonstrated by the above one-liner, his life philosophy is as honest and fluff-free as his reductionist designs. In short, expect (well-proportioned) fireworks when the sculptural lighting specialist presents at Design Circus, the much-respected annual design event that brings industry big-hitters to Perth to talk candidly and openly about their careers. For Anastassiades, this career began with studying civil engineering at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine. After getting his masters in Industrial Design from the Royal College of Art, he took his first steps in the world of design. Since establishing his eponymous design studio in 1994, he’s collaborated with names such as furniture brand Herman Miller and lighting specialists FLOS...

Tour a Paris Home Where Impactful Art and Innovative Design Create Alchemy

Renowned architect, furniture designer, and art collector Reda Amalou says, “Creation, at its core, is a dialogue with others.” And, when it came to designing his own Parisian apartment for his family, the prolific designer invoked a compelling conversation rippled with art history talking points and architectural character development. The home is located in the heart of Saint Germain des Près, close to famed landmarks such as Café de Flore, Deyrolle, and Brasserie Lipp (as well as Amalou’s own offices), in a neighborhood ripe with rich artistic and intellectual history. “We were looking for a very French style of Haussmannian apartments, as we had lived only in modern spaces up until then,” says Amalou. “This apartment had very strong character thanks to its high ceilings, significant moldings, and large vertical French windows that give off a traditional feel.” With his traditional groundwork in place and primed in a classic disposition, it was time for Amalou to weave a more modern..

This Leading Designer’s NYC Home Is a Wellspring of Inspiration

For architect Giancarlo Valle, designing the Brooklyn loft that he shares with his wife, AD’s Style Director Jane Keltner de Valle, and their two young children was about more than reconfiguring a space to suit a growing family. For Valle—who worked for A-list architecture firms like SHoP and Snøhetta (where one of his projects was the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)—before opening his own office in 2016, “This was the project that got me into interiors,” he explains. (Those interiors include a Manhattan townhouse for Barne..

Il Divin' Disegnatore – “The Divine Draftsman and Designer”

The name Michelangelo still represents the zenith of Renaissance majesty, some of the highest ideals of Beauty and Truth and a testament to putting all of the gifts God gives to the service of exalting and proclaiming Him to the world. The masterpieces of Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) are so numerous that it is a challenge to list them all, let alone speak of them in a manner that does them justice. That does not mean, of course, we should not try. In keeping with that spirit, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is currently hosting an extraordinary exhibit – the largest collection of Michelangelo’s drawings ever assembled outside of Italy. Entitled, “Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer,” the exhibit brings together 200 of Michelangelo’s drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault and other works by contemporaries and influences on his development, from 48 public and private collections in th..

Fashion landmarks: Big years don't come easy

Twenty, 25, 30 — the numbers are big and the achievements, bigger. Between March 2017 and March 2018, India’s fashion industry is celebrating quite a few anniversaries: Suneet Varma and Madhu Jain hit 30; Abraham & Thakore, Ashish N Soni, JJ Valaya and Payal Jain turn 25; and Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna, Namrata Joshipura and Rajesh Prathap Singh make it to 20. “More than just decade markers, what’s to be noted is why these designers have been around for so many years,” points out Sunil Sethi, president of FDCI. “Having a signature of their own has made all the difference — be it Suneet’s European sensibility, A&T’s love for textiles and handloom, JJ’s bridal or Ashish’s clean western lines.” With thousands of graduates waiting to enter fashion every year, Sethi believes they need to learn from the experiences of the veterans, on what it takes to be here and survive. After all, they gave India’s nascent fashion scene a jump start. “It’s no longer about in-your-face costumes. Their desi..

How Metra monthly passes become miniature works of art

It's more than just a monthly pass. It's a taste of romance, of adventure and nostalgia. The miniature works of art that make every Metra monthly pass pop come courtesy of graphic designer Ron Wojkovich and a team of ad hoc photographers and administrators with trains on the brain and in the heart. advertisementThe assignment sounds like an artist's dream -- create an eye-catching, evocative image 12 times a year that will be viewed by a captive audience of thousands. The trick is doing it on a 2¼-by-4-inch canvas with a bar code at the bottom and a big black letter showing the zone smack-dab in the middle. "It has to be compelling, it needs to fit vertically ... and you need an open space at the top, so you don't bump into the letter," Wojkovich explained. The constraints haven't hampered the product, as shown by an eerie picture of a train under a full moon and a lightning bolt (October 2016), a bucolic scene of a locomotive chugging past a farm, or a muscula..
