IC Wall lamps is part of the IC family, created by Michael Anastassiades in 2014 for the Italian brand Flos – blown glass spheres delicately placed on thin metal frames with sharp angles. Michael Anastassiades was inspired by a juggling show during which the juggler's dexterity fascinated him.
Cypriot expatriated in London, intrigued by the system of codes that the English police uses in its reports, Michael Anastassiades wanted to make fun of it by using the initials IC, usually referring to the different ethnic groups of people.

Michael Anastassiades joined his design agency in London in 1994. The Cypriot-born designer studied industrial design and engineering at the Royal College of Arts and Imperial College London. Its lamps, mirrors and other products range between industrial design, sculpture and decorative arts. Deceptively simple, his works are meticulously done and inspired by his studies of civil engineering and industrial design.
Anastassiades is particularly famous for its lighting fixtures, which represent 80% of the projects entrusted to its agency. Sparkling surfaces mingle with simple geometric shapes such as tubes, oblong and spherical shapes, to articulate architectural spaces. The designer has often chosen to use reflective materials such as glass and bronze that float independently and interact with the surrounding space.
