British design studio Barber & Osgerby, have created a cross section of daily life through a Triptych installation comprised of new work.

 

“We have arranged the space into three areas divided by giant felt screens. Each space offers the visitor an environment for relaxation, meeting and working under a canopy of paper lanterns,” say Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby.

 

Triptych will consist of huge felt screens that create three areas, as well as animal hides on chairs and sheepskins on oak benches. These materials, set off by a white wood floor from Tarkett, reflect Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby’simpression of winters in Stockholm. The installation uses felt from Nordifa, known for their engineered textiles, furniture manufactured by Vitra, Knoll and B&B Italia and the Hotaru lantern collection manufactured by Ozeki.

 

Previous Guests of Honour include Patricia Urquiola, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Naoto Fukasawa, Konstantin Grcic, Giulio Cappellini, Ineke Hans, Paul Smith, Arik Levy, Inga Sempé, Oki Sato/Nendo, GamFratesi and, most recently, Ilse Crawford.

 

Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair will be held on February 9-13, 2016 at Stockholmsmässan.
