Since their first product ‘The loop table’, Barber and Osgerby have developed collections for B&B Italia, Flos, Vitra,
Magis, Cappellini, Swarovski, Venini and Established & Sons, among others. They have also designed works for private commissions, and for public spaces such as the De La Warr Pavilion, The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and the Portsmouth Cathedral. The pair say one of their main focuses is colour and use it as a starting point when coming up with new ideas. Since winning their first award in 1998 as ‘Best new designer(s)’at the ICFF editor’s awards Barber and Osgerby have an impressive 39 prestigious awards including EDIDA Designer of the year.
