Continuing our Modern Day Artisans series highlighting craftsmen revered by many for their authenticity and specialized skills, HBTV showcases the talents of English furniture/product designer Max Lamb, as he grants us access to his London workshop. Taking us through the process of creating a swivel oak table, Lamb touches on his initial fascination and appreciation for furniture, as well as the benefit of handmade over machine-made. Max Lamb’s work can be found here with a few items currently up for sale.

In our latest HBTV feature Modern Day Artisans, we highlight a range of individuals who have become experts in their field, effectively maintaining the authenticity, originality and art of their respective trade.
