Design company creating high quality products for use in architecture and interiors. LAMA profiles with sustainable products, produced industrially and finished by craft. Innovative materials and products with a ‘human touch’.
Our designstudio is specialized in concept-development, material- and productdesign for interior-architecture. Part of this development has led to our own product line: the LAMA collection. We work closely with many distinctive architects, interior designers and companies like Airbus, Landrover, Google or W hotel to customize colors, sizes, shapes and materials to their projects. Also, more and more brands consult our knowledge and experience in the field of concept-development and design.
We offer a number of options to positively influence your interior with elements that can be as subtle or as prominent as one wish. Our award-winning “Cell” carpet has evolved from an experiment into rugs, wall coverings, art panels and room dividers. The application of new technology such as LED affects the atmosphere of a room more or even can guide your way.
Our complete collection is designed and engineered at the Amsterdam-based studio and produced in the workshops of LAMA or by selected manufacturers in Europe. Different techniques are used, from low-tech craft to high-tech 3d printing. The experimental and non-conventional approach to design and materials, particularly textiles, allows for an innovative and flexible product line.
Research & Development
Regularly, we research and experiment with materials, self-initiated projects, to continue to develop ourselves, test new techniques and find new solutions for applications in interior architecture. A number of these designs are coming on the market; others are waiting for a new project in which they can be applied.
Contact us for your bespoke projects to co-create new products, new applications, develop materials or collections.
‘Invitation to touch’ design approach
LAMA Concept’s tactile design does exactly that. Inspired by organic structures, architecture and production processes, LAMA modifies materials from two-dimensional surfaces into three-dimensional playscapes that make the term “functional” an aesthetic. Creation comes through experiment, and material properties are closely researched forming the basis for design. Simple, subtle and smart, LAMA Concept’s products continue to evolve, proving their versatility and timeless nature.
Using materials and their properties as their basis, LAMA Concept’s ‘invitation to touch’ has been a driving force behind their work since the 90s. Founders Erik Mantel and Yvonne Laurijsen share a deep love and understanding of combining pure, straightforward looks and clever functionality with the almost primitive urge to want to feel what is around you.
In today’s world, a technological revolution is taking place in which products have started to appeal to our sensory organs. Computers are undergoing a true metamorphosis from awkward, illogical boxes of wires to compact, visually pleasing gadgets, responsive to our innate desire to touch. Technology is becoming an altogether more familiar, and increasingly intimate, part of our daily lives.
Modern technology may respond to our fingertips, but does nothing to stimulate them. With their designs, LAMA flirts with the senses and creates an environment in which comfort, quality and beauty effortlessly come together. Ardent believers of the cradle-to-cradle concept, LAMA use sustainable materials to create both “hard” and “soft” elements to adorn any interior.
