Burstein attended the London College of Printing in London between 2001–2004 and the Royal College of Art in London from 2004-2006. In 2007 Burstein founded Beta Tank, a conceptual product design studio in Berlin that uses design objects for social commentary. In 2008 Burstein exhibited at the Design And The Elastic Mind Exhibition at the MoMA in New York, which was curated by Paola Antonelli. In 2010 Beta Tank was awarded Designer of The Future award by Design Miami during the Art Basel.

The book was published by Gestalten.
