Max Lamb likes eating Cornish pasties... It just so happens that he was also awarded the 'Designer of the Future' award at 'Design Miami/Basel' 2008!
1 Describe yourself..?
I am human, quite sensible, generally polite, rather tenacious and most definitely curious.
2 What is Deadgood?
The humble red brick is a symbol of solidity and illustrative of the creativity of ancient civilization. It has little changed in design, material and construction in thousands of years.
3 Tell us 5 things you like...
Physical and mental challenges, factories, food and the sea where the land meets the ocean. I also like mountains; in fact I’m not sure there are any mountains I don’t like, at least none of the ones I have seen or climbed and I can’t really comment on the mountains I haven’t climbed. Even the man-made mountains of the china clay industry in Cornwall that surrounded my childhood are impressive, if a little austere!
A native of St. Austell, Cornwall, Lamb earned a degree in Three Dimensional Design from Northumbria University in 2003. In the same year he was awarded the Hettich International Design Award and the Peter Walker Award for Innovation in Furniture Design.
In 2006, he completed his Masters Degree in Design Products at the Royal College of Art, developing a concise, process driven approach to design. After a year designing for Tom Dixon Studio, he established his own practice and in 2008 began teaching on the Industrial Design course at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne.
Max's talents are currently in demand around the globe.
