Zeb Stool Soft

zeb stool soft

Design Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2014
Die-cast aluminum, standard leather upholstered
Made in Germany by Vitra

Bar stools are often designed as part of a family of chairs. The Zeb Stool, by contrast, was designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby to fulfill the specific purpose of a bar stool: every individual component is precisely developed in the best quality for its designated function. All of its parts - seat and swivel mount made of die-cast aluminum, powder-coated column sleeve, chrome-plated gas spring, footrest and base plate - are precisely coordinated down to the smallest details. Thus they not only serve their individual purpose, but are joined together in an elegant, unified whole of the highest quality.

The name Zeb refers to Zebedee, the twirling jack-in-the-box character from the BBC children's television series 'The Magic Roundabout'. The bar stool has a height-adjustable swivel seat. The sleeve of the column comes in various colors, and the round seat is also available in different versions: in wood or covered in leather with either thin padding or softer upholstery.

30.25" - 33.75" h | seat: 13.75" dia. | base: 17.75" dia.

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.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
