Description/

After a decade of coating polystyrene in rubber, Lamb is still innovating
with new coating materials. Lamb’s new highly reflective chairs begin
in the same process as his Poly works: hot-wire cut polystyrene creates
wavy ridges, which is then sprayed with rubber that dries within seconds
creating signature drips. The final step of silvering takes the longest
— a wet application process of silver nitrate that is similar to traditional
mirroring.
A precise chemical solution of silver nitrate and sodium hydroxide is
mixed to make a wet solution that is then applied to the rubber coated
poly chair. As the solution dries and settles, silver deposits create a
mirrored surface. The contours of the chairs are accentuated as light
reflects from every angle. Meanwhile the edges of the chair are blurred
as its mirrored surface reflects the surroundings.

Polystyrene.
