People who have saved this event:


Making a Living is a solo show by designer Max Frommeld. The exhibition presents a collection of new products for an experimental living space. These respond to a series of domestic activities: playing, resting, dressing and hosting.


A prestigious Arts Foundation prize, awarded to Frommeld in January 2017, provided the opportunity to create a new body of work produced in two locations: his East London studio and his family’s workshop in Inverness, California. In London, Frommeld refined his additive design process and assembled a series of products that employ new construction techniques and materials. In California, he challenged himself to make an object a day for one month. Using local materials and four tools, he carved a collection of
surprising pieces that are the result of an intuitive approach to making.

Making a Living brings together both sets of work, including over 20 handmade objects ranging from designs for production to one-offs.

The scope of Frommeld’s practice includes private commissions and design work for commercial brands. He is best known for projects such as the award-winning Folding Boat (2012), Strammer Max Stool (2009) and private commissions for cabins and play structures. Frommeld also teaches on the Product and Furniture Design course at Kingston University.

Since 2002, The Aram Gallery has been presenting new and experimental work, with a special interest in the work of designers in their early careers. We are delighted host Making a Living and share this unique solo exhibition with our audience.
