From commentary in The Incidental (a community-generated newsletter and website tracking the design buzz this week in the British capital) to a curated show of his father's pottery collection, designer Max Lamb is popping up all over the London Design Festival. Dwell caught up with him at The Everyday Life Collector exhibition in the Brompton Design District in West London.
The show, a collaboration between Max and Italian design magazine Apartmento, features Richard Lamb's personal pottery and ceramics collection, which was gathered over the last 15 years. Some of the objects, many of which are from the Lambs' native Cornwall, are also for sale. Elsewhere, Max's China Granite project is on show at 20 Hoxton Square gallery in Shoreditch, and he and his girlfriend, artist Gemma Holt, also collaborated on a piece for the Corn Craft exhibition at FUMI gallery, just across the square. In the video below, Max tells us about the inspiration for Everyday Life Collector, as well as his own eclectic menagerie of chairs:
