Both designers were born in 1969 and both come from the UK. In 1996, they as a duo founded a studio that bears their names. Over the time, Barber Osgerby Studio was involved in designing collections for brands such as Vitra, Swarovski, B&B Italia and Isokon, and also designed a torch for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Those who are interested can see their work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, at the Art Institute in Chicago, or at several London museums. One of their best-known designs is the Tip Ton chair, which is invented so that people can sit on it in two positions. In addition to the classic seating, the chair will also allow a slight tilt forward, which according to the creators benefits the spine, blood circulation and thus has a positive effect on concentration.
Another popular piece is the Mariposa variable sofas. The collection is named after the butterflies, which sofas also resemble. Like butterfly wings, their backrests fold variously. In addition to the usual seating on them, you can also sit directly opposite each other without losing comfort. The fitting Otoman Mariposa will also be a great addition to them.
