Anastassiades, known for his sleek and minimalistic designs, took on the challenge of creating a fully realized interior space for Red Jane. This project marks his first foray into interior design, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. The space seamlessly blends the physical labor of baking with the elegance of Anastassiades’ signature style.

One of the standout features of the Red Jane Bakery is the custom ceramic project designed by Anastassiades in collaboration with Mutina. The ceramic tiles, inspired by fringe but in a smaller format, feature a unique pattern of grooves in white and terracotta. The tiles elegantly interpret the minimalism of the space, adding a touch of sophistication to the bakery.
