Design Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2014
Hardwood & plywood, high density foam, die cast aluminum legs
Made by Knoll

A spirited new collection of lounge furniture by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby offers a relaxed, contemporary attitude toward interior design. The lounge collection is distinguished by a pinched pleat stitch detail that reinforces its architectural profile and plays against the curvature of cushions on each face. The sofas and complementary ottomans feature cast aluminum legs that can provide a pop of color.

The Barber & Osgerby lounge collection features hardwood and plywood construction with elastomeric suspension sheet webbing and foam supported sit-through feature at the cushion breaks. The high density foam construction has a gel infused high density memory foam on the top seating surface. The legs are die cast aluminum in a range of finish options and fitted with adjustable glides. The collection is offered in a range of fabrics or leathers.

Barber & Osgerby

London-based industrial design studio Barber & Ogersby was established in 1996 by British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The two men met while studying for their Master's degrees in Architecture at London's Royal College of Art. Their first piece together, the Loop table, secured a relationship with Cappellini and garnered much acclaim. As a team, their multidisciplinary portfolio now encompasses furniture, lighting and product design as well as art and architectural-scale projects. They are both Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) and are past recipients of the Jerwood Applied Arts prize. Both are Honorary Doctors of Arts, and Osgerby is an Honorary Fellow of Ravensbourne. The pair have lectured internationally and their work is held in permanent collections around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; London’s Design Museum; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Significant recent projects include the Tip Ton chair for Vitra (2011) and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Torches.
Hans Knoll, the son of a pioneer German furniture manufacturer, founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938, one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust, a Cranbrook graduate who had worked for Gropius and Breuer, and the two were married in 1946. The next year, they opened a textiles division and showroom that was flanked with some of the worlds leading designers. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and producing them to their original specifications. This included the 1929 Barcelona Chair. They also commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the now iconic Tulip chair, and hold the rights to Marcel Breuer’s seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
