Biography

Kris Lamba was born in London, UK in 1984. His work fuses large scale lamination, metal casting, composite fabrication and traditional wood carving. Kris creates work with a modern simplicity; a coalescence between mother nature and man’s imagination. He believes that connections are made instantaneously, bonding us irreversibly to the objects we love. This primal quality can be seen throughout his work, with bold flowing lines and striking sculptural forms. Designing is an energetic process for Lamba, his pieces becoming expressions of a singularity; ideas forged through experimentation, later undergoing gradual refinement.

Originally trained in fine cabinetry and design, Kris’s RV1 Chair, 2015 can be viewed as a rebellion against the confines of working within tradition; It’s unending extruded form defying conventional practice.  In 2016 Kris co-founded the Origins Project: a series of exploratory abstract works, produced in collaboration with British artist Ian Ward.

Several of Kris’s pieces have been published worldwide to widespread critical acclaim. He currently lives and works between Brighton, UK and Cagliari, Italy.
