Biography

British designer Max Lamb has travelled to China, Australia, the Catskills in New York, and closer to home—the beaches of Cornwall, England—to source materials for his one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Whether forging chairs from solid Chinese granite, crafting tables from sheets of steel, or casting pewter stools in sand, in an age-old technique that entails digging into the beach and filling it with molten metal, Lamb’s methods are often labor-intensive and deeply entwined with his materials. Other works have incorporated hand-crafted plaster carved with stonemasonry tools, manmade marble, bronze, aluminum, and dowel.
