Eyal Burstein is a conceptual product designer investigating social behavior and perception. Interested in self-censorship, morality, and its effects on creativity, Burstein makes objects that probe and emphasize our life choices.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1977, Burstein grew up in London. He studied Graphic Design at the London College of Printing, before pursuing his MA in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art. After graduating in 2006, he founded Beta Tank, a conceptual product design practice dedicated to cross-disciplinary research and the development of objects for social commentary.
Standout projects include Beta Tank’s Taxing Art and Sensory Substitution series, as well as the recent Beta installation, commissioned for Swarovski Crystal Palace and presented at Design Miami 2012. He has been awarded Designer of the Future by Design Miami and his work has been exhibited at MoMA, the Design Museum in London, and the V&A.
