Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating                                                    AIC/Yale University Press, 2018                                                     Author: Zoë Ryan

This book investigates over a decade of creative practice with a focus on his interest in seating—from stone thrones to wood chairs and enameled-steel stools. In Lamb’s own words, “A seat is very simple in function, but very complex in the many different characters, forms, and ideas it can express.”  Both retrospective and forward looking, this volume—created in collaboration with the artist—is the most thorough investigation of Lamb’s work to date and features an exclusive interview with noted artist Ryan Gander in which the designer discusses his creative processes and goals.
