New And Exclusively at Inform Interiors!

Captain Flint Floor Lamp and Extra T Table Lamp By: Michael Anastassiades

Michael Anastassiades launched his studio in 1994 to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of product, furniture and environmental design. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and integration.  He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect.  Anastassiades' work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New Yrok, the Victoria and Albert Museum London, the Craft Council in London, the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, and the MAK in Vienna.

Brian Beck, is an artist and all round the most complete Renaissance man we know.  In the summer of 2014 Brian travelled to Dalakunut, Sweden to attend the Gransfors Bruk  Log-building Course – Timber Jointing and learn the art and craft of building traditional Swedish log cabins.  Gransfors Bruk is an internationally renown company that for over 100 years has specialized in the crafting, care and use of axes, the only tools used in the making of this cabin.  If any of you have ever been lulled into hours of zen watching Dick Proenneke’s “Alone in the Wilderness you will understand the level at which Brian works. The cabin was part of Beck’s Obsolescence: Brian A.
