A chandelier by Michael Anastassiades changes the weather at Andreas Murkudis.
Michael Anastassiades has a long relationship with Andreas Murkudis: the London-based designer’s poetic light installations have been a frequent feature of the store over the years.
Examples of his work reside in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the V&A in London, and now two new light installations, developed especially for Andreas Murkudis, have found a permanent home in the store.
A pair of exquisite mobile chandeliers, unveiled for Gallery Weekend Berlin, subtly illuminate the product displays at Potsdamer Strasse 81. Mouth-blown opaque glass globes hang from curved frames of patinated brass in a delicate choreography of light and balance.
Anastassiades’ ethos of using family-run workshops and traditional materials chimes perfectly with Andreas’ own conception of luxury. Like items of fine jewellery, the chandeliers provide a new perspective on the store.
