Savvas Laz is a designer with a true passion for the sensual and the exceptional. He is dedicated to creating bespoke, handcrafted objects that celebrate the superior quality, allure and richness of the arts and crafts. Storytelling is an essential ingredient in his design process. Historical research in combination with material exploration and impeccable craftsmanship come together to create collectible objects that fuse the extravagant with the minimal, and imbue the everyday with playfulness and pleasure. After his master’s degree in Civil Engineering, he assisted artist-designer-interior architect Joep Van Leishout at Atelier Van Leishout, in Rotterdam, where he evolved the sculptural side of his practice. He lived in Doha and Berlin, before moving to Switzerland where he graduated with distinction from the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship at ÉCAL. Today his studio is based in Athens’ ancient centre, a historical hotspot of pleasure and play from which he draws endless inspiration.
