To celebrate the launch of Hem’s splatter-painted Last Stool ‘Splatter’ by British designer Max Lamb, Hem has collaborated with Italian gelato maker Gelateria Rigoletto on four custom gelato flavours inspired by stracciatella gelato – one to match each style stool.

Ice Cream Social is inspired by gathering, sharing and socialising. Hem’s products launched in Milan this year celebrate the Italian tradition of gathering with friends and family to eat. Each afternoon, Ice Cream Social will have a guest host, including collaborators and friends of the brand.

Each stool is formed from a single metal sheet, spun at high-speed into the shape designed by Max Lamb. The splatter effect is achieved by first lacquering the spun form, then hand-splattering enamel overtop. Each stool is then heated to set the enamel. The hand-splatter means no two stools are the same.

In addition to the launch of the splatter Last Stool, Hem is launching theBookmatch table by Philippe Malouin; All Wood Stool by Karoline Fesser; Hide Table by Karoline Fesser; Zig Zag shelf by Studio deFORM and a new fabric for the Koti Sofa, Dash by Form Us With Love, all of which will be in the Hem installation at H+ to enjoy along with Hem’s splatter gelato.

About Max Lamb

His Last Stool, made from a single sheet of turned metal, is emblematic of his style.
