Amuneal Half Wagner Vitrine
Amuneal is a hidden cog of industry whose three facilities in the Frankford section of North Philadelphia blend into the tattered half-industrial, half-residential neighborhood. Founded in 1965 to make magnetic shields for the military industry, Amuneal’s second-generation owner, Adam Kamens, expanded the company’s capabilities in 2000 to include custom work for residential and commercial architects and designers.
In 2012 Amuneal expanded again by launching its own furniture line. This vitrine was inspired by displays of natural history specimens inside another remarkable North Philadelphia institution, the circa 1855 Wagner Institute of Science.
