Next week NiMAC and the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education will present the first survey exhibition of Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades. Things That Go Together reflects the designer’s 12-year practice to date; from his eponymous brand to his extensive studio collaborations with established manufacturers.
The show presents Anastassiades’ design process through his research, his personal collection of objects and finished works from the studio archive. He founded his studio in London in 1994 and trained as a civil engineer at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine before taking a master’s degree in industrial design at the Royal College of Art.
His work is featured in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the MAK in Vienna, the Crafts Council in London and the FRAC Centre in Orleans France.
There will be plenty of opportunity to visit the exhibition as it will run until July 20. Parallel to Things That Go Together, NiMAC will host a series of events including guided tours, lectures, discussions, educational programmes, activities and workshops.
