Established in 2012 Anwar Studio (soon to be Sapien Studio) is the creative outlet of Industrial Designer/Artist Steve Anwar. Steve holds a bachelors degree in Industrial Design and graduated from Sheffield Hallam University studying at the iconic Psalter Lane campus. Based in Sheffield the heart of England’s industrial north, the studio produces sculptural objects, art installations & bespoke interior architecture, fusing industrial materials and processes with high quality craftsmanship. Anwar born and raised in Sheffield (the steel city) likes to draw from his dual heritage bringing together eastern thinking & ideas with northern industrial manufacturing & materials with a firm focus on the hand made. The style is a contemporary mix of traditional, experimental, and sculptural typologies blurring the lines between design, art and object.
"I'm a big believer in the positive impact both meditation & art can have on our daily human experience. Meditation is like my in-breath or input & art is my out-breath or output”
Anwar is well known for his use of meditation running various classes, courses & workshops alongside his design output, much of his creative inspiration is taken from this multifaceted topic. In 2016 Steve became a certified teacher - completing his 16 week 'Masters of Wisdom & Meditation' teacher training in Carlsbad, California with the esteemed master Davidji. His classes are designed to help people slow down amongst the hectic rhythms of life - teaching skills to restore balance, clear stress & unlock creative potential. Meditation plays a key role in Anwar's work and life.
