EVENT|Exhibition “TOKONOMA” by Max Lamb at Momosan Shop

11 MAY, 2017

Momosan Shop is presenting our TOKONOMA collection designed by Max Lamb.
If you are near, please drop in on us.


Based upon the Japanese tradition of arranging things, TOKONOMA is a series of products each with their own unique function and each made from a different material, whose formal qualities contrast and compliment one another; material, scale, color, texture and weight. Whether consciously or naturally arranged within the home, the dish, stool, vase and mat combine to serve both practical and aesthetic everyday needs, producing a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

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.
