One of the novelties presented at Milan Design week 2016 was Max Lamb new stool design for Hem.
Each of the splotchy metal Last Stool Splatter seats by British designer Max Lamb for Hem is patterned by hand. The stools are formed from a single sheet of metal, which is spun at a high speed and shaped – a process described by Hem as “emblematic” of Lamb’s style. The furniture is then lacquered, before being speckled with enamel and set using heat.
The Last stool was created by English industrial designer Max Lamb and shows his trademark economic, uncomplicated approach. Due to it’s polished finish, this stool will age beautifully over time to become a truly unique, patinated home objet d’art – elegant yet functional.
Max Lamb was also selected by us for the Top designs of Milan Design week 2015!
This series of Stools is the latest in Lamb’s series of material experiments that he has used to form seats. The stools feature a groove that forms an indented ring just under the seat, and taper outwards with a raised lip encircling the base. The furniture comes in cream, white, green and black editions – each of which features unique markings.
The Last Stool Splatter collection was created for Hem’s Ice Cream Social showcase, which took place during the 2016 Edition of Milan Design week.
Max Lamb – Winning the 2003 International Design Award while still a student allowed Max Lamb to visit the Cologne Trade Fair, where his interest in industrial design was piqued. The Englishman favours a direct, uncomplicated approach, trying to create an object from its raw material in the simplest possible way. His Last stool, made from a single sheet of turned metal, is emblematic of his style.
