Abstract

Following his exhibition at “No Name, No Number”, in East London, Russell Bamber was commissioned by Material Lab (Britain’s premier material library based in Central London) to design and make a series of 14 unique sculptural furniture pieces for Clerkenwell Design Week- a three day International design festival (Tuesday 24th May- Thursday 26th May 2011) in Central London that celebrates all disciplines of design. Russell has recently been working on objects, ranging from chairs, stools and tables to site-specific installations that occupy gallery spaces, and also had a series of sculptures describing linear form recently cast in gold, silver and bronze, and others describing volume cast in bronze, but painted to disguise their mass and suggest fragility. His simplification, and re-examination of form, allows for experimentation in scale, colour and the re-definition of space. This has also resulted in him being sponsored by Formica and receiving a major commission for a new Venetian restaurant on Vyner Street, (“East London’s Cork Street”) where he plays with the interaction and reflection of intense colour
