-By Holly O'Dell



Edward Lam, co-founder of Toronto art and design studio Moss & Lam,  died on April 22 of a brain aneurysm. He was 54. Lam ran the company with his wife, Deborah Moss. The couple created specialty wall installations for high-profile hospitality and retail interior projects, including the hand-painted screens for the Trump Hotel in Hollywood and a wavy plaster wall at W New York - Times Square hotel.

Moss & Lam has collaborated with many firms, including Yabu Pushelberg, Contract's 2002 Designer of the Year. In 2010, the firm was profiled in The New York Times after debuting its furnishings collection comprising laser-etched rugs, hardwood tables, and one-of-a-kind wall décor.

Moss will continue to operate the firm after Lam’s passing.
