Anastasiou designs


Anastasiou Designs was set up by Clio in 2018. With a background in architecture and applied arts, Clio wanted to promote a different way of seeing of a material that is otherwise taken for granted, through the creation of contemporary woodturned homeware. All products are handmade and inspired by the celebration of nature. Anastasiou Designs strives to pay respect to the natural form of wood and to focus on the raw qualities of the grain. To achieve this, Clio experiments with scale, as well as the combination of locally sourced wood and resin, to create material hybrids and preserve nature in time. 


All wood is locally and sustainably sourced and waste is minimised by creating smaller products out of offcuts, which makes each item truly one off and unique. 


Why discard a type of wood when it can provide you with the freedom of endless material choice? No shrub stem is too slim; to tree branch is too small to prevent its use in the process of making.
