Alissia Melka-Teichroew, founder and creative director of BY:AMT Inc, formerly known as Alissia MT Design, is a New World-Old World mash-up. The daughter of a French mother and U.S.father, she was born and raised in the Netherlands. She is a graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven (The Netherlands) and holds a Master of Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design (USA). After stints in Paris, San Francisco, and Boston, she finally alighted in New York, her true home. She now lives and works in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Alissia’s transcontinental background is reflected in her fluidity and fluency of her designs. Attuned to the latest design innovations, trends, and materials, she infuses her work with her own unique, charismatic personality and mischievous sensibility. Her products are savvy, sophisticated, and witty: the archetypical diamond ring rendered in candy-colored acrylic, ceramic plates folded in easy-to-hold shapes (Handful of Plates), a mirror that transposes the viewer’s face over an iconic image of feminine beauty (ME-ror).
