09 Jul LaGuardia Sculpture Fabricator is Used to Working with Designers
Following the unveiling of Sarah Sze’s “Shorter than the Day” sculpture at LaGuardia, AD Pro’s Madeleine Luckel spent some time with Amuneal CEO, Adam Kamens, and tells the whole Amuneal story! From the humbly specific beginning in the technical world of Magnetic Sheilding to our multi-faceted role today as design-collaborators and fabricators in the world of large scale public art, monumental architectural features, and finely detailed bespoke work for private residences with Interior Designers and Architects.
“As it happens, the Philadelphia-based studio with whom Sze partnered to bring this work to life spends a great deal of its time creating works for interior designers and architects. But it wasn’t always that way. Amuneal was first founded by the parents of its current CEO, Adam Kamens, as a manufacturer of magnetic shields. When Kamens took over, he saw an opportunity to expand the company more broadly into design. That meant making furniture as well as a rich variety of other customized structures such as stairs, ceilings, and just about everything else in between. Flash-forward to today, and the studio counts the likes of Roman and Williams’s Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch as past collaborators.”
