My Circuit: design your own path
"I am part of a generation where, growing up as a kid, electric slot cars were hugely popular. But beyond the idea of racing, I was more fascinated with how simple combinations of curved and linear track sections would create fantasy circuits. Through similar imagination, one can simply map this experience to the opposite surface of the ceiling"
Endless layouts, infinite configurations.
My Circuit by Michael Anastassiades is a fully flexible lighting track.
We test the system’s modularity within the spaces of a house on the hills outside Milan, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1964 for Cesare Cassina. Designed simply with a square layout based on symmetry, the house features a copper roof and a structure partly encased on the hill, and is accessed through a street-facing court. The house’s living area is defined by a fireplace that divides its spaces, and it opens onto the landscape, connecting the indoors with its surroundings.
Within the rational architecture of Magistretti’s interiors, the system sinuously adapts to the different interior configurations, from compact to elongated rooms and in multi-functional, asymmetrical spaces. The house gently frames the lighting compositions, allowing each element to shine in the minimalist interiors. The discreet decoration of My Circuit’s track offers a gentle approach to multifunctional lighting that sits well within the house’s rooms.
My Circuit is a new approach to illumination. Connecting to the sinuous ceiling track is a series of illuminating options that include high performance and decorative spotlights, pendants shaped like circular domes or discs, and suspended floor to ceiling lamps, all defined by Anastassiades’ poetic approach to form.
All the suspended luminaires designed for the track program are available as stand-alone solutions, taking the names of My Disc and My Lines. In this version they are equipped with a ceiling rose, also in total white finish.
Geometry hangs in the balance in the elegant My Disc fixture. Combining minimal aesthetics, a matte white colourway and the latest optical lighting technology, a thin disc is pierced by a vertical stalk to offer an even and diffused downward light, ideal for positioning over a table.
The work of Michael Anastassiades strikes the perfect balance between art and design. A designer who wishes to bring his ideas to life without compromise, Anastassiades and Flos make the ideal partnership. Discover other lighting solutions by the renowned Cypriot designer.
