After first opening its doors in 1971 Flos acquired brands and opened a new factory on a path to bring cutting edge creativity to the interior lighting industry. Their later collaborations with Achille Castiglioni in the 80's established Flos in the market by developing a family of lighting, the Brera Series. Later partnerships with contemporary talent including Philippe Starck, Jasper Morrison, Konstantin Grcic, Marc Newson, Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders, Patricia Urquiola and many others continued to propel Flos as a leader in modern interior lighting. Pairing with talented design professionals has become a core element of the company's mandate and extends to all areas of its brand including promotional activities and artful photography.
Having received much critical acclaim, Flos is a five time winner of the Compasso d'Oro Industrial Design Award and have secured commissions to illuminate several of Europe's great historical and architectural sites including Venice's Palazzo Grassi and the City of Amsterdam archives.
Today, Flos is a top choice amongst consumers for both private residences and commercial lighting applications. A versatile catalogue paired with a long standing reputation and design history makes Flos products a perfect addition to any space.

Michael Anastassiades studied industrial design and engineering at London's Royal College of Art and Imperial College. He founded his London design studio in 1994, and began collaborating with many respected firms, including Studio Mumbai.

His lights can be seen in hotels, restaurants, and stores worldwide, including the Grand Hotel Stockholm, Soho House New York, and the Sergio Rossi boutiques worldwide.
Michael is particularly renowned for his lighting products. He often chooses reflective materials—such as mirrored glass and polished bronze—that appear to dematerialize his objects, and to float independently, interacting with the space surrounding them.
Besides being commissioned and collected by private patrons and clients all over the world, Michael has worked with many acclaimed designers and manufacturers, including Hussein Chalayan, Swarovski Crystal Palace, Lobmeyer, Svenskt Tenn, and FLOS.
