    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 E´CAL (E´cole 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.

    The Neoancient series by Savvas Laz is a collection born out of a synthesis between the natural and the artificial. It is conceived as an aesthetic Paradox that combines the rawness of marble leftovers with the glossiness of hand-finished polyacetal rods.
    The collection, that references the ancient Greek heritage, is composed by stools, benches, side tables and chairs made of high-quality marble (such as Dionysus white marble) standing on custom made white polyacetal legs. Circular holes in the marble are filled by the industrial plastic to create an interrupted surface that is also smooth to the touch.
    The object’s shape and dimensions are defined by the quarrying process: scratches, broken-off edges, machine drilling and other markings are left in place to become part of the finished object. Each piece is made by hand using a different piece of marble and is therefore unique.
