The Plumen 001 light bulb
The Plumen will change the way you see light bulbs forever. Not only does it have a beautifully curling design that’s unlike any other, it uses 80% less energy and lasts eight times longer than a conventional incandescent bulb. Just a few of the reasons why it won the International Design of the Year Award in 2011.
Tip of the Tongue light: Engineered beautiful

Graphic and sculptural, this Tip of the Tongue lamp is constructed from mouth-blown opaline and polished brass with a black silk braided flex.

Anastassiades’’ philosophy is to produce exceptionally designed objects of permanent value. All pieces are fabricated in carefully sourced small family-run workshops selected for their unique manufacturing skills and tradition in the use of materials.

Spun chair: Engineered beautiful
Thomas Heatherwick’s Spun chair was created using the process of metal spinning. Traditionally used to make circular objects such as drums and gas cylinders, it got Heatherwick thinking that it might be useful in the production of more unfamiliar items.
Heatherwick then resolved to create a completely symmetrical chair. The finished item is both ergonomic and rotational - not to mention striking and humorous. It makes a welcome addition to any living space.
