or Call to Order

The Tobi-ish table is named after the orna­men­tal stones in Japan­ese gardens, which have inspired the compo­nents of its design. It converges both func­tional features and a stat­uesque appear­ance with amazing results. The over­hang­ing top and bases look differ­ent depend­ing on the view­point, while the various finishes endow the table with highly personal inter­pre­ta­tions: from cement to marble and lacquer in the sophis­ti­cated hues of red candy and blue smoke. Orig­i­nally round in shape, it is now presented in larger version with a rectan­gu­lar top tapered at the ends.

Barber & Osgerby

England

Barber + Osgerby is a design studio in London, established by designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby in 1996. Known for their work in furniture, lighting, and product design, Barber and Osgerby are both Royal Designers for Industry (RDI), and many of their award winning pieces are placed as part of permanent collections in museums in both the United States and Great Britain. In addition to their industrial design studio, Barber and Osgerby founded an architecture and interior design studio, Universal Design Studio; as well as MAP, a consultant firm for industrial design strategy. Some of their early work started with folding and shaping sheet metal. Notable industrial design pieces include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Torch; as well as the Tip Ton chair they designed in 2011 for Vitra.
