Chair, from Copper series, 2015
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Max Lamb and Johnson Trading Gallery as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.
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 this copper chair, Lamb employed a process similar to electroplating to attract nanocrystalline copper onto a sculpted wax form, which was then melted away.
