Barber Osgerby, Projects
£59.95 (S$105, hardcover)
Get an in-depth look at the riveting inner workings of the most iconic furnishings and projects in the design world, created by internationally acclaimed designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.
Dedicated to exploring and challenging the archetypes of contemporary design practice, the duo has amassed a dynamic and expansive portfolio, from the architectural-like Loop Table, to the London Olympic 2012 Torch.
Chronicled by Jana Scholze, the 312-page volume will cast light on even the smallest of projects by the pair, and will be accompanied by conversations with key figures in the design industry, including design studio Dunne & Raby and Rolf Fehlbaum - chairman emeritus of Vitra – for exclusive insight into the designers’ working method and motivations.
Scattered within the pages are studio shots, sketches and a wealth of unpublished images from the designers’ personal archive, as well as six essays detailing career-defining projects that will have both design aficionados and furniture enthusiasts alike poring over every detail.
