They have developed collections for several major furniture manufacturers as well as limited edition pieces and one-off works for both private and public commissions. BarberOsgerby’s work is held in permanent collections around the world including the V&A Museum, London; New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art; London’s Design Museum; and the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Barber Osgerby Lounge Collection, introduced in 2014, was the pair’s first collaboration with Knoll. The Collection balances architectural forms and proportions with a soft, inviting sitting experience. The signature leg serves the dual purpose of foot and connector, simultaneously providing structure and support. The lounge collection was followed in 2015 by the Piton Collection of stools and side tables, a modified tripod design well-suited to the home or office. Their latest collaboration with Knoll led to Pilot, a swiveling lounge chair that marries visual and material lightness with exceptional comfort.
The latest in an ongoing collaboration with the British design pair Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Pilot by Knoll™ features a cast-aluminum structure that links the crane-neck, 360-degree swivel base to the assembly of the seat and back, creating the impression that the cantilevered seat is almost floating. Available in both high and low back versions.
