The Lounge Chair by Max Lamb is a tough piece of furniture. Yet a hard-as-nails first impression soon gives way to a visual softness and physical comfort. Lamb explains that he began by investigating pine; how it is grown, sawn, received, sold. His approach thereafter was logical; choosing off-the-shelf sections of wood and piecing them together to create a large surface area and logical form. Material is scooped out of the building block-like forms to make two ample convex recesses, revealing the characterful grain within. The result is a strikingly singular chair ‘mathematical in its approach and transparent in its construction’ says Lamb.
Pine will naturally change color as it ages. Your pale piece of furniture will gradually mature to a beautiful honey color over the course of several years. Pine is a soft wood and will also suffer some dents and scratches over time. We ask you to embrace and enjoy these characterful signs of aging.
