Jay Osgerby was born in Oxford, UK in 1969. He started his collaboration with Edward Barber in 1997. He experimental Hula Stool, 2001, originated from sheet plywood reassembled to create complex, compound curves; the Shell Table, 2002, (nominated for the Compasso d'or) and Shell Chair, were further structural studies in plywood. The use of folds created beam structures that could take the weight of a person but were also incredibly light. In 1999 Levi's approached Barber & Osgerby to join a team who were developing the ingenious 'Engineered Jeans' range. Barber & Osgerby were responsible for producing 2 hangers to display the range in all Levi's 9000 shops around the world.
