About Us

Material Intelligence was founded by veteran furniture industry journalist Kenn Busch to better connect architects, designers, and other specifiers with the ever-growing universe of available interior design materials that offer solutions for their design challenges.

Kenn Busch photographs and writes about architecture, interior design and furniture for several magazines in the U.S., Europe and Asia, and the Material Intelligence web site.

In recent years he has specialized in creating approved educational features and content for professional design specifiers. You can find his CEU-certified features online and in Interiors & Sources magazine. Kenn has also been a fixture as a moderator and presenter at the European Laminates and Pan American Laminates Conference & Workshop events since their beginning in 2002.

He began his career in the furniture industry with Wood Digest magazine in 1990, and is the founding editor of Surface & Panel and Laminating Design & Technology magazines.

Founded in 2008, Material Intelligence has also been active in exhibiting at major exhibitions catering to professional architects and interior designers.
