Too young and a great loss to the industry. Your work lives on.
Designer Edward Lam of Moss & Lam died on Monday, April 22, from a brain aneurism at the age of 54. Together with his wife, Deborah Moss, the Toronto-based firm’s co-founder, Lam was known for blurring the lines between fine art, illustration, applied arts, and furniture design. Moss and Lam launched their firm in 1989 and swiftly cornered a market for dramatic, custom art pieces for a bevy of clients including international hotels, restaurants, retail and residential projects. They’re well known for the seven-storey mobile installation, that comprised of thousands of reflective gold and silver butterflies, petals and leaves interspersed with golden crystals and glass beads, named the ‘Magic Garden’.
