Born In Cyprus,
trained as a civil engineer at London’s Imperial College of Science aTechnology and Medicine before obtaining his master’s degree in industrial design at the Royal College of Art. Currently residing in London, his meticulous designs seem to play with the notions of balance and equilibrium:

“I really believe in proportion and also that everything has to relate to the space around it,” says Anastassiades. “I’m interested in the instability that exists in design,” he continues.
