RE­VIEW

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.
