herman miller unveils ‘double dream of spring’, an environmental installation by london-based designer michael anastassiades. to debut his inaugural collection, anastassiades has conceived an enigmatic environment inspired by the tradition of metaphysical surrealism, creating a complimentary backdrop for his featured ‘spot’ stools and ‘stasis’ tables. both furniture pieces are characterised by a circular top and base, connected by two tubular poles.

for the ‘double dream of spring’, anastassiades recast the architecture of the herman miller showroom in milan as a neutral, rational backdrop in which to display furniture. in the space, his elegant and spare ‘spot stools’ and ‘stasis tables’ for herman miller are shown in walnut and white oak paired with a carefully considered shade of brass, complemented by monumental lighting sculptures created by michael anastassiades—the designer’s eponymous brand—especially for this installation.

 

the ‘double dream of spring’ is on view at herman miller at corso garibaldi 70 during milan design week.
