Max Lamb (UK, 1980) grew up in a bucolic seaside town in Cornwall, England, an upbringing that imbued him with a love of nature and a creative spirit leading him to explore materials by re-contextualizing them in both conventional and unconventional ways. He celebrates the inherent qualities of his materials and reconsiders their function. Lamb looks to design products that stimulate a positive three-way interaction between product, maker and user through a visual simplicity that effectively communicates the obvious. After completing a degree in Three-Dimensional Design at Northumbria University, Lamb went on to receive a Master's Degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, London in 2006. A frequent lecturer and design workshop leader, Lamb currently lives in London where he continues to develop new designs that challenge the traditional concepts of the materials he uses and the processes with which he manipulates them.
