Tab Table Lamp

c. 2007

by Barber & Osgerby
for Flos

Tab table lamp was designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby in 2007. The LED table version features a disc base, colum­nar support, and pivot­ing hood in die-cast aluminum. The Tab lamp’s simple trian­gu­lar folded hood with an upright tab” allows the user to pivot the diffuser in several ways to direct light. Tab’s colum­nar cylin­dri­cal stem flares slightly as it meets the base disc in a fashion remi­nis­cent of Jasper Morrison’s iconic Glo-Ball table and floor lamps.

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby each grad­u­ated from London’s Royal College of Arts with a Masters degree in archi­tec­ture and actu­ally started their collab­o­ra­tion while they were students. The duo has worked across a wide range of disci­plines to create every­thing from furni­ture, light­ing, house­hold prod­ucts, restau­rants, shops, drinks bottles and elec­tronic prod­ucts for major design manu­fac­tur­ers based on several conti­nents. Their work is now found in the perma­nent collec­tions of several museums world­wide includ­ing the Victo­ria and Albert Museum, London; the Metro­pol­i­tan Museum of Art, New York; and the Design Museum, London.

The 45 degree rotat­able head is avail­able in the white finish while the new edition 90 degree rotat­able head is avail­able in green, black, and matte blue.
