Raw materials look like unfinished, rough but beautiful in their forms that refer to the brightness of obsidian stone. Max Lamb is the author of Poly Dining Set, a set of furniture-jewelry. For this creation, Lamb starting with large blocks of expanded polystyrene, and then he carves his forms with a hot wire cutter and then coats them with a high-density, weather-proof rubber. The result is strong looking, but surprisingly light.
He has very clear creative concepts to reduce the process to a minimum, up to the most primitive of its essence.
Graduate of the Royal College of Art and disciple of designers as Tom Dixon, Martino Gamper and Andrew Stafford, Lamb he chooses without fear, start the search for knowledge and experimentation in his works.
“Basically, I usually work in small series or unique pieces such as Quarry Series or Bronze Pewter Stool and Chair. Although sometimes, depending on the patience, time, money or interest in the project, decided to do reissues of the same object.” says Lamb to Design Museum in a interview.
