Maria Balshaw commissioned Max Lamb to create a dressing screen for her office. As she is constantly in and out of the office, going to different meetings and events, she often need to change in the office, but doesn’t have a anywhere to store clothes and make-up.
“A normal week for me consists of meetings all day then openings in the evening and sometimes dinner after that. I couldn’t describe the object I was after exactly so I told Max Lamb I needed ‘a hanging-mirror-screen-storage-help-me-get-changed-unit’. He came back to me and said, ‘What you need is a valet.’” - Dr Maria Balshaw, Tate
