One by One book by designers Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby (2015) is a visual, meditative approach on the design- and production process. Through a selection of projects represented by a singular image or drawing we get a glimpse of the diversity and fresh energy of their work. The two designers work with different approaches but their ”ideas always seem to unite”, as they say. They also stress that their work is a cooperative effort. Technicians, model makers and engineers play an important role from early concept sketch to the launch of the final product. During recent years Barber & Osgerby has collaborated with companies like Vitra, B&B Italia, Knoll and Mutina. In February 2016 Barber & Osgerby visit Sweden as Guests of Honour at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
