Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby
Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby founded their eponymous studio in 1996 after graduating with a Master of Architecture degree from the Royal College of Art in London. From their first studio in London's Trellick Tower, they designed their first piece, the Loop Table, produced by Isokon in 1997. Much of Barber and Osgerby's early work involved folding and shaping sheet material, influenced by the white paper they had frequently used in architectural modeling. Plywood and perspex were used in the development of Pilot Table, 1999 and Stencil Screen, 2000.
