About byAMT Brand

New York-based design studio byAMT creates jewelry, home goods, and furniture that tweak expectations and invite delight.

Quintessential byAMT products an acrylic version of the classic wedding ring; the Peasant Collection, contemporary furniture made of rustic wood; and Jointed Jewels, elegant ball-jointed necklaces, bracelets, and rings created on a 3-D printing machine, layer by layer. These objects share the same quirky sensibility: a twist on an iconic form or a surprising use of a material. A byAMT object demands a reaction, whether a chuckle or a serious debate.

Hailed as “thought-provoking” and described as design that “is as much about whimsy as practicality,” byAMT has been featured in many magazines, newspapers, and blogs, including the New York Times, Dwell, and Fast Company. byAMT has also exhibited at the Salone del Mobile Milano, ICFF in New York, 100% Design Tokyo, Material Connexion New York, and Victoria & Albert Museum, among others.

byAMT products are currently available at stores like MoMa Store, Le Bon Marché, and many more. Current available products are produced by: Van Esch, Palau, Functionals.eu, Y’A Pas Le Feu Au Lac, Blik Surface Graphics, Charles & Marie, as well as by the byAMT Inc. studio itself
