Barber & Osgerby Piton™ Side Table

barber & osgerby piton™ side table

barber & osgerby piton™ side table

Design Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2015
Die-cast aluminum, stainless steel, wood
Made by Knoll

A new collection of stools or side table designed by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for KnollStudio offers a relaxed, contemporary attitude toward interior design. Taking cues from the aesthetic principles of Modernism and pragmatic considerations of stools manufactured for sewing professionals in the mid-century era, the Barber Osgerby Piton stool and table are equally well suited for industrial tasks and domestic settings.

The geometric, elementary framework of the pieces is an interpretation of the familiar tripod structure; the conical base, unified by two concentric rings, guards against the potential for imbalance caused by an uneven floor, equally distributing weight so as to counteract the tendency of the table's three-legged counterpart to wobble. The die-cast material is equally resilient to abrasions and dents.

The Barber & Osgerby Piton side table features a robust cast aluminum base finished with a highly durable powder coat paint in a variety of colors. The knife edge wood tops can be specified in either ebonized ash or oiled teak. Side table is not suitable for outdoor use.

piton side table: 16.25" w | 16.25" d | 21.25" h

$725.00 + plus shipping in the continental U.S.

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.
