Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating

Chicago, Illinois

We’re pleased to congratulate our friend and collaborator Max Lamb on his first monographic museum show, now open at the Art Institute of Chicago.  For the Exhibition, curator Zoë Ryan selected 20 seating pieces from Lamb’s oeuvre of over 400 unique seats. Highlights include the Campania Chair and Forge Chair, a new steel chair made in collaboration with a local steel mill and commissioned specially by the Art Institute of Chicago. A careful look at the techniques and materials involved in making each of these exceptional pieces gives visitors a glimpse into Lamb’s deep interest in both process and material—each of which are as dear to the designer as the finished product.

Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating runs through 26 August 2018.
