Andrea Anastasio


After completing his studies in philosophy, Andrea Anastasio embarked upon a cultural path that led him to cooperate on projects entailing the cataloguing of Islamic architecture in India, research on innovation in traditional craftsmanship techniques, partnerships with architectural practices, publishers and museums. Fascinated by the study of the poetics of conceptual art and its potential convergences with industrial design, he designs furniture and objects for Italian companies that play a leading role on the international scene. His research focuses on the manipulation of objects, consumer goods and domestic materials, to generate cross-contaminations of languages and meanings, such as in the Filo lamp, the first project he has coined for Foscarini.
