Minimalist lighting, home accessories and furniture designed with longevity in mind.
Toronto-based lighting, home accessories and furniture company Anony proves why sustainable design is the way forward. Focusing on local manufacturing and the use of honest, durable materials, the brand designs and makes minimalist products that last and can easily become a part of living spaces for generations. The clean, understated designs also fit into a variety of interiors, defying the passage of time with their timelessness. At the same time, the brand makes the most of the latest technology to ensure that every product is not only long-lasting, but also made sustainably.
The Anony collection comprises mostly lighting, with designs ranging from table and floor lamps to wall sconces, pendants, and chandeliers. Some of them are modular while others allow users to create more complex compositions with several pendants. All of them, however, feature simple geometric forms in refined designs that are as versatile as they are enduring.
Elegant and dynamic designs that showcase the beauty of simple forms and honest materials.
Featuring clean, simple linear shapes, the Form series showcases the bets of modular design. These pendant lights look great either on their own or in sophisticated combinations. Wisp encourages user interaction with a touch-sensitive design and a sliding shade that controls the light diffusion. Highwire creates a three-dimensional space with two cables and a weighted disc that illuminates on both sides in a beautifully balanced light sculpture. This design comes as a pendant or as a chandelier. Also exploring the concept of balance, the Phase lighting series features a sphere, semi-circle and disc in a dynamic composition with one or multiple tiers. Weighted with care to ensure a perfect balance, each lower component provides a base for the upper tier, resulting in a sculpture that moves in equilibrium.
Designed in collaboration with EQ3, the Fount floor and table lamps bring together frosted glass shades with a ripple pattern and aluminum bases. The frosted finish softens the light, while the pattern gives a radiant glow to the lamps. Made of soft touch silicone with a conical shape, the Glub portable lamp works well either as a table or as a wall light. Inspired by sunrises and sunsets, the Horizon wall sconce has a circular shape with a central disk that moves to change the direction of the light.
Glass 120, Ohm and Node all use the globe shape in different ways. Glass 120 is extremely versatile, featuring a simple acid etched glass globe with minimalist bases or supporting hardware. This series comprises wall sconces and pendant lights as well as chandeliers. Offering a more unconventional take on the classic spherical light, the Ohm collection pairs opal glass orbs with curved metal elements. Finally, the Node Light features a cylinder that “pierces” a glass globe.
Sculptural and unconventional objects made with eco-friendly materials and techniques.
Apart from lighting, Anony also makes furniture and home accessories. All of these products and creatively designed, reinterpreting archetypes in ingenious forms. For example, the Trio Stool. Crafted from steel, the stool features three identical pipes which are perfectly machined and then bent and welded together. The three steel pipes create a triangular shape, doubling as a sculptural object in a room. Likewise, the Temp series is imaginative and bold. Inspired by heat sinks, this collection of vessels, cups and bowls combines two elements, blended in one single object. The bases remind of heat sinks, while the containers have more conventional forms. Finally, the Stone Tableware collection features distinctive curved forms that avoid traditional shapes to encourage multifunctional use. Eco-friendly and organic, these vessels and trays are made from offcuts of travertine or volcanic stone. Images courtesy of Anony.
