Max Lamb’s Japanese Infusion

London designer Max Lamb has created a bench and stool made out of cleft chestnut found in London’s Springfield park. Featured yesterday on Design Boom, these unusual pieces are certainly eye catching.

The bench and stool, after being carved by Lamb into his desired, rough shape, are then varnished with Urushi lacquer (primarily made out of organic oily liquids found in trees and used in Japan).

The rough, unfinished texture of the pieces make a stark contrast to the high-gloss black varnish, bringing this somewhat hickledy-pickledy design up to date.
