Salone del Mobile 2015: Max Lamb’s Exercises in Seating

There are certain events during the hectic Salone del Mobile week in Milan, that just cannot be missed. This year, one of those events is Max Lamb’s retrospective at Spazio Sanremo titled “Exercises in Seating”. Known for his emphasis on process and tireless experimentation with materials, Max Lamb brings together a rich selection of his seating projects displayed in a rough industrial setting. Each piece is an exploration of the material and the possible formal qualities that emerge from it, developed with the intent of exploring the material or production process’ limits, rather than formal qualities of the object. “Exercises in Seating”, in fact, displays not the final product in itself but the inquiry and ideas of the designer in material, three-dimensional form.
