A modern day craftsman, Max Lamb is a furniture designer whose design sensibility is informed by his extensive knowledge of manufacturing techniques, respect for materials, and skill as a maker. A native of Cornwall, Max has been tinkering with objects and engaging with the physical landscape since he was a small boy, a curiosity that led to an MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art and ultimately, the foundation of his process-driven design practice. Max explores traditional and unconventional materials and processes, informed by his travels to China, India, Japan, Nigeria, Italy, and beyond. He has exhibited his pieces internationally.
Max joined Workshop Residence in Spring 2014 and returned in Fall 2017 as a visiting designer while working as The Wornick Distinguished Visiting Professor of the Wood Arts at CCA.
