Chair, from Scrap Poly Pastel series, 2014
Inspired by natural elements, Lamb explores the process of furniture making by using raw materials and experimental techniques, resulting in a rough and tactile quality. To fabricate his Scrap Poly Pastel chair, Lamb carved a chair from polystyrene offcuts and then coated them in rubber to stabilize the waste material.
