AMLgMATD, a Miami-based collaborative studio established by Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova in 2014, experiments with works of art, design objects, and environments that reflect their love of unusual and overlooked materials. AMLgMATD’s modus operandi consists of incorporating historical and geographical research into their visual language, playing with the sense of nostalgia, the application of familiar materials to new forms and unexplored materials into familiar settings, and redefining their surroundings with humor. AMLgMATD’s works are collected by private and corporate clients in Miami, New York, and Los Angeles, and their WEBSTR stools are available throughout the US in both boutique and museum stores. For five years, AMLgMATD participated in creating public seating & installations at UNTITLED, Art in Miami Beach during Art Basel. They were selected by the jury in Miami-Dade County’s Art in Public Places program to complete a large-scale mural and custom hand-made breeze block security wall at the new ASPCA Community Veterinary Center in Liberty City, Florida. AMLgMATD was also commissioned to reimagine Miami’s Museum of Art and Design Education Lab, completed in 2022.
Laz Ojalde is a Miami native, Natalie Zlamalova was born and raised in the Czech Republic. Both were educated in California in the Art & Design fields and met during their artist’s residency at the ArtCenter/South Florida. Laz’s background includes interior and product design, and running a local artist hub called studio LMNOQ. Natalie graduated with honors earning a BFA in Graphic Design from Otis College of Art and Design.
