The lights posit various combinations of standard linear incandescent bulbs, either 0.5m or 1m long, and tubular brass fittings of the same diameter. They appear as parallel repetitions of rods, varying between metal and illuminated. The design process was systematic, bordering on obsessive, with Anastassiades exploring all possible iterations, suggesting a mathematical sequence. The final cut, however, was made purely on aesthetic grounds. The 11 arrangements that went on to become the final series of lights were chosen for their apparent effortlessness. Belying the complexity of their construction and the skills of the UK-based machinist who manufactured them, they appear as though they came together by chance.
