bio | Savvas Laz

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 completing a master’s degree in civil engineering, Savvas Laz graduated with distinction from the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship of ÉCAL (École Cantonale D’ art de Lausanne), Switzerland. As a designer, he worked next to Joep Van Leishout at the Atelier Van Leishout in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where he developed his skills in sculpture making—an element he always makes part of his work.

Savvas Laz has collaborated with important luxury fashion and design brands such as Vacheron Constantin, Chopard and Retrosuperfuture. His creations have been featured in some of the world’s leading design and lifestyle publications including Dezeen, Domus, Esquire and many more.

Since 2018, the studio of Savvas Laz is based in the historical centre of Athens, Greece.
