We’ve previously discussed many of the classic names in modern design furniture that are responsible for pioneering the industry like Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and many more names that are no longer with us. Today we’re shifting our attention to some more recent names that have contributed to the industry.

Based in London, BarberOsgerby is an industrial design studio launched in 1996 by British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The studio’s work includes lighting, furniture and product design and it has also worked on architectural scale projects. Some of the notable projects BarberOsgerby has worked on include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic torch and Vitra’s Tip Ton chair.

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby were born in 1969 in Shrewsbury and Oxford, respectively. Barber studied interior design at Leeds Polytechnic while Osgerby studied at Oxford Brookes University and Ravensbourne College in London. The two would eventually meet at London's Royal College of Art while pursuing their Master’s degrees and subsequently opened their studio in Trellick Tower, West London after graduating.

Today, BarberOsgerby’s highly acclaimed body of work is part of many permanent collections around the world including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the largest museum of decorative arts and design in the world.

This update is provided by CA Modern Home, offering an extensive selection of modern home furniture by respected brands and designers including BarberOsgerby.  Call us at 1-800-605-1859 for any sales inquiries or more information on furniture by Eames, George Nelson, and the many other iconic designers.
