ALL ABOUT BALANCE –

“this collection explores balance. there is a series of lights: table lights, wall lights, ceiling pendants and ceiling mounted lights which take as their basic form a sphere that is perfectly balanced on the edge of a rod. i came across an online video clip of a contact juggler. he was spinning a set of spheres, moving them around on his arms and edge of his fingers. and as I got mesmerized by the magic of his skill, suddenly the spheres look perfectly still. i wanted to capture that exact moment. this was my starting point. the initials IC come from the codes that english police use to define the perceived ethnicity of a person they stop in the street when reporting back to the station. IC1 means white person or northern european type, IC2 means mediterranean european/hispanic, IC3 indicates an african/afro-caribbean person, and so on, so this is a playful story to define the different designs.” MICHAEL ANASTASSIDES.
