Architectural Materials Lab
Like most enterprises that deal in innovation, Architectural Materials Lab—a supplier of distinctive finishes to the architecture and design industries—thrives at the crossroads of inspiration and problem-solving: “When designers come to us, they know we’ll have materials for all applications of their projects, no matter how unusual,” says Kelley Laekas, who co-founded the business with her husband, Adrian, in 2011 to meet the building community’s custom needs. Terrazzo-like flooring that remains elastic? Zero-waste wood cladding? No problem. The Laekas’s worldwide sources will have a solution. Adrian says, “We collaborate with designers to find—and often invent—singular, sustainable materials with both performance and style.”
"The best news is clients can enjoy something extraordinarily beautiful knowing it also has a light carbon footprint."
