Much of Barber and Osgerby’s early work involved the folding and shaping of sheet material, influenced by the white card that they had used frequently in architectural model making. They have already developed collections for B&B Italia, Flos, Vitra, Magis, Cappellini, Swarovski, Venini and Established & Sons, among others and 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.
This year, the duo leads to the LONDON DESIGN BIENNALE a piece called “Forecast” and according the artists “was inspired the UK’s pioneering advances in wind energy with the installation evoking an image of wind turbines and weather stations. Movement is triggered as the wind picks up or changes direction, creating a simple kinetic sculpture that responds to the elements.”
The first London Design Biennale opened this September at Somerset House with over 30 countries participating. Countries from all the world will present newly commissioned works that explore the theme Utopia by Design.
This exhibition will explore big questions and ideas about sustainability, migration, pollution, energy, cities, and social equality and we can see installations and artworks curated by the leading museums and design organizations in the world.
