The shelf Combo, named after a strategy of successful shots in a rapid succession, is one of four shelves made from oak. It’s accompanied by Tilt, Flipper, and S.D.T.M. (Straight Down The Middle). The materials were chosen for their honest qualities and have been kept untreated, in line with Anastassiades’ philosophy of exposing the essence and creating purity of design. The lighting collection, all made out of mirror and mouth-blown opaline spheres, allude to games on introspection and the self. The Jet Bumpers are handmade out of arabescato altissimo and portogallo pink marble.
The design seeks to dematerialise its elements: the mirror that one can’t see inside, the static ball, the wooden elements on the walls; they all join the mythology that Anastassiades has been building meticulously throughout his collections over time. Through these romantic yet playful references, the concept of the pinball comes to life again through the balls and lights, leaving one to imagine the familiar sounds echoing throughout the gallery.
