Lighting for a Happy Restaurant Full of Madness

Lighting is one of the best ways to set the mood in a restaurant. Det Glade Vanvid's (The Happy Madness) newly opened flagship in Copenhagen is a testimony to that. Anker & Co has customized a unique lighting solution playing with light and shadow and creating a welcoming atmosphere. When you enter the restaurant, you are greeted by an impressive ceiling height, the golden chandelier Macchina della Luce by Catellani & Smith and an almost majestic staircase. The table lamps Rever Dining 1.0 by Wever & Ducré were chosen to create the feeling of an intimate dining experience in the large and extraordinary room.

Anker & Co presents Michael Anastassiades

I define myself as a creative. I create things. Now whether this is read as design or art I think it’s open to anybody’s interpretation,” says Cypriot-born, London-based designer Michael Anastassiades. Working at the intersection of design and art he creates pieces, which are rigorous, playful, pure, abstract, nuanced, and evocative, and often all at once. His lighting fixtures will frequently pair elemental shapes like cylinders, spheres, and tubes with more luxury, reflective materials - mirrors, crystal and polished bronze - creating a distinctive interplay. Watch our film about Michael Anastassiades and learn more about his inspiration, vision and aesthetic.

Anker & Co represents Michael Anastassiades Unlimited Collection in Scandinavia.
