Barber, 1969 / Osgerby, 1969

“The pencil is the ultimate tool for the transfer of ideas from mind to paper.” - Edward Barber

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, both born in England in 1969, studied architecture and interior design together at the Royal College of Art in London. They founded their own architecture and design studio – Barber Osgerby – in 1996. Known for their roguish designs such as the Tip Ton chair for Vitra and the Tab Light for Flos, the East London-based pair have been showered with a number of prestigious awards including the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize for Furniture, and most recently they were awarded the title of Royal Designers for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts.

Much of Barber and Osgerby’s early work involved the folding and shaping of sheet material, influenced by the white card that they had used frequently in architectural model making. Plywood and perspex were used in the development of the Pilot Table, 1999, and Stencil Screen, 2000.
