British designer Max Lamb takes his unique brand of sculpture to New York City.
October 20th, 2008
‘Delaware Bluestone’ is a new exhibition by British contemporary furniture designer, Max Lamb. An evolution of Lamb’s previous exhibition ‘Exercises in Seating’ is presented by designs of stone, bronze, pewter, copper and polystyrene, which fill the Johnson Trading Gallery space.
Lamb attempts to create positive interactions between user and product through fun, inspired and inspiring designs. His motivation stems from his desire to exploit the intrinsic qualities of traditional and unconventional materials – exploring product-user interactions.
“My recent work has been very preoccupied with processes and materials, and alternative ways in which these can be manipulated, exploring the potential of local skill-based industries, combining skilled hand-craft techniques with native materials, and sometimes juxtaposing these with digital processes and the high-tech,” says Lamb.
Delaware Bluestone, the material, is naturally blue sedimentary rock that has a strong historic connection with the architecture and urban design of New York.
‘Delaware Bluestone’ is currently on show until 11 November 2008 at the Johnson Trading Gallery (New York).
