among the furniture that is being presented are two designs by british creative max lamb who exercises the traditional process of wajima nuri urushi lacquering to finish a cabinet and table. in contrast, a sculptural three-dimensional wall by rowan mersh is completed from 40,000 windowpane oyster shells that form a textural surface that reflects light in a way that visually enhances the iridescence of its natural appearance. a cloud-like formation of glass blown luminaires by jeremy wintrebert, hang delicately, while the sensually robust form of alex hull’s ‘split’ armchair displays the possibilities of moulding soft leather / suede into a structural form.
