London-based designer Michael Anastassiades produces this sculptural water fountain for London Design Festival. Located in the V & A's garden courtyard, the piece is not only functional but also incredibly aesthetically pleasing. The silhouette is a column with a curved shallow bowl. The material used in the production is bronze which gives the sculptural water fountain a definite edge and a captivating demeanor. For the creation of this piece, Michael Anastassiades draws inspiration from classical architecture.

Aside from its engaging shape, the bronze fountain also calls attention to itself by way of its responsive material. When individuals lean in to take a drink from the concealed water dispenser, the surface of Michael Anastassiades' design elegantly reflects golden light onto their face.
