BarberOsgerby’s aim was to create a piece that works perfectly for both long or compact umbrellas. Its triangular shape fits well in any position in the home.
A simple series of holes enables open or closed umbrellas of any size to be popped in without a problem. A happy accident is that it is also the perfect shape for wine bottles.
Edward Barber studied Interior Design at Leeds Polytechnic and in 1992 moved to London to study Architecture and Interiors at the Royal College of Art.
Jay Osgerby studied furniture design at Ravensbourne College of Art and in 1992 moved to the RCA to study Architecture and Interiors. Edward and Jay met at the RCA and in 1996 they formed BarberOsgerby.
Together they now have an extensive and diverse portfolio of modern furniture and contemporary lighting for designer brands such as Isokon Plus, Magis, KnollStudio, Flos, Asplund, Cappellini and Vitra.
