He was born in St Austell, living predominantly on pasties, sand and sea water - an upbringing that gave him a zest for nature and creativity. His inspiration grew from his desire to explore and re-contextualise both traditional and unconventional materials, exploiting their inherent qualities, and to reconsider the function of all products and objects.
Max designs products that are fun and inspiring. Mostly, he designes furniture, graphics, and interior products, as well as entire interior spaces for restaurants, shops, exhibitions and private domestic interiors. Max loves to travell and his interest in local and globalised cultures is of huge influence to his work.
