Armstrong World Industries Inc., based in Lancaster, Pa., acquired BŌK Modern, based in San Rafael, Calif., which designs and develops integrated architectural metal systems for a broad range of interior and exterior applications.
BŌK Modern built its business on collaborating with architects, designers, general contractors, and installers to create an expanding portfolio of architectural metal solutions including facades, rainscreens, fencing, and interior and exterior partitions. While many exterior metal elements are supported by bulky steel structures that are aesthetically unappealing, BŌK has developed solutions that incorporate structural supports into designs.
“BŌK is a strong complement to our growing metal category and will add new design capabilities to Armstrong with a particular focus on innovation that delivers a customer’s design intent with greater efficiency,” says Vic Grizzle, CEO and president of Armstrong.
BŌK Modern was founded in Northern California in 2009 by designer Heddie Chu and architect Russ Naylor who are both remaining at the company. Click here for more info.
