As part of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s “Future Luxury” talk series, Max Lamb and Brent Dzekciorius, Jane Withers and Daisy Ginsberg have been invited to speak on Future Materials.

While certain materials have an enduring relationship to the idea of luxury due to their perennially high cost, changing ecological, technological, economic and social conditions all have an impact on the public perception of value. Could materials that we take for granted as universally accessible today become key markers of exclusive access and class distinction in the near future? Will science play a key role in developing the luxury materials of tomorrow? Will growing concerns about sustainability and resources drive invention or generate new interest in old technologies and techniques? Speakers will include Max Lamb and Brent Dzekciorius, Jane Withers and Daisy Ginsberg.

Set in a South Kensington garage on Thurloe Place Mews, a stones throw from the V&A, this London Design Festival exhibition will present Marmoreal in the complete range of standard colours and formats, from full slabs and tiles to a selection of furnishings. The special presentation represents the first occasion to experience the large, three metre slab dimension. These Marmoreal formats will be shown alongside process images and text that will give visitors an in-depth insight into the progression from concept, to prototype, to production, to application.

Dzek + Max Lamb receive a 2015 Wallpaper* Design Award for Marmoreal

We are extremely pleased and grateful to have been honoured with a 2015 Wallpaper* Design Award under the Best Reuse category.

“Sustainability is now a key driver of material innovation. And that’s a good thing. So we’re very taken by ‘Marmoreal’, an engineered multicoloured marble devised by Max Lamb for Dzek. The marble is built to be suitable for flooring and wall covering, but can also be used to construct furniture.”

-Rosa Bertoli, Wallpaper* Magazine
