James McNab is a New Zealand-born industrial designer now based in Melbourne, whose recent body of work is centered around utilitarian aesthetics- creating simplified yet visually pleasing objects through highly industrialised materials and processes. His focus is on designing objects that are uncomplicated and visually balanced.
A significant part of McNab's work revolves around exploring manufacturing processes and uncovering unique techniques to be applied within new contexts. He often works with aluminium and utilises a variety of finishes to create pieces that challenge the perception of the material.
In addition to furniture and objects, McNab runs an interior design practice where he gets to explore various other design methodologies, often pulling his work in alternative and unique directions.
