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.
