The Product Issue: Michael Anastassiades reflects on how his creative eye remains timeless in an age of instant visual gratification – and much more.

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? In the case of these whimsical, Spanish-made pendant lights, don’t sweat it: The effect is less Big Brother and more – as their name implies – playful wink. Shown earlier this year at Maison et Objet in Paris, the ceiling fixture is a collaboration between creative consultancy Masquespacio and design brand Houtique, both of Valencia. Ana Hernández, creative director at Masquespacio, says it celebrates the power of observation in the creation of good design. She clearly has the eye of a (neo) surrealist: The pink rayon fringe, suggestive of eyelashes, is Dalí with a postmodern twist.

Measuring 15 centimetres long, it dangles from a stainless-steel semi-circle bathed in 18-karat gold and is detachable for cleaning. The thin black cable on which the frame hangs, meanwhile, is up to a metre long, making it easy to install at varying heights, either on its own or in a group.
