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

Broached Retreat
Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China
From 24 May 2014

The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing is putting on its first design exhibition this spring in cooperation with Lou Weis from Broached Commissions in Australia. Titled Broached Retreat, the exhibition invites international designers to collaborate on discussions on the history of design.  These discussions take place within a pavilion constructed out of paper, stone, and steel. The pavilion, entitled Broached Privacy, addresses the question of how we experience personal, interior spaces today.

Marmoreal by Max Lamb is featured in Broached Retreat as an architectural surface used within the pavillion for flooring and wall cladding as well as in the construction of exhibition designer Chen Lu’s own furniture designs.

Other participating designers include Broached founding members Adam Goodrum, Trent Jansen, and Charles Wilson alongside works by Keiji Ashizawa (Tokyo), Susan Dimasi (Melbourne), Naihan Li (Beijing), Azuma Makoto (Tokyo), and Lucy McRae (London).
