COS - Projects & Modern Design
Projects & Design at COS
Regent Street, London
This minimal lighting can be seen across COS stores around the world (above, Regent Street store). Designed by Michael Anastassiades, a trained engineer and graduate of London’s Royal College of Art, his work deftly combines fine art and with functionality. His mobile chandelier collection featuring linear metalworking delicate glass spheres, each designed to be perfectly balanced.
This design informed their much celebrated project for the Salon Del Mobile in Milan this year.
An immersive and multi-sensory experience named ‘New Spring’ in collaboration with Studio Swine. A tree like sculpture that echoes the design of Anastassiades. But this tree emits pale bubbles which dissolve into a white mist when they burst. The bubbles emerge from the end of each branch, bursting when they come into contact with skin but not when they touch textured fabrics.
