Exhibition: Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby: Ascent

Eight new pieces on show, which are the outcome of a collaboration between the [British design studio Barber Osgerby] and the gallery, investigate the structures and engineered forms of moving craft, such as the fine-like shape of wall-mountedbrass structure Foil V.

Corona 800 and Corona 1100 are two large discs which emit light. one is made from mirror-polished brass, while the other is a brilliantly colored red one, each appearing is if they are hovering just off the wall. These are displayed with a vertical wall-mounted, mirror-polished brass panel.

Their exploration and use of transportation structures is very apparent in Frame 1, a large, wall-mounted structure for which Barber Osgerby sought out a British boat builder to make. The British designers love of craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident with Planform Array V and Planform Array H, two chandeliers with 8 and 14 segments respectively. the frame-like portions are covered with handmade Japanese paper that has been hand-stitched into each part.
