The project seeks to create a harmonious relationship between architecture and landscape. While the structure’s thin metal shell looks like it offers little protection from the elements, it is actually lined with a waterproof membrane.

Called Owan, the structure is made from a metal referred to as a “memory alloy”, which means it can be bent into new forms when heated.

The Armadillo Tea Pavilion comes from the catalogue of Revolution Precrafted, a company that aims to “democratise high-design and architecture” by providing prefab structures from more than 30 famous designers – including Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, Kengo Kuma and Zaha Hadid. It launched its first design at last year’s Design Miami, the sister event of the Basel edition.

Keep up with the latest developments by the three Barber and Osgerby studios.

Puzzle is the name of the first collection launched in collaboration between Barber and Osgerby and the Italian brand Mutina. This new work of the industrial design studio located in London compromises a range of different tile designs that can be used in a variety of combinations and, that way, imagination is the keyword to understand Puzzle Collection. Also available in single-coloured pieces, the square tiles can be covered by semi-circles, rectangles and triangles in three hues.

Barber and Osgerby presents Puzzle and Mistral Collections at iSalone isalone Barber and Osgerby presents Puzzle and Mistral Collections at iSalone 21

In the words of Jay Osgerby and Edward Barber, “the Puzzle collection is a game with infinite outcomes”. According to the London studio founders, who won the 2015 London Design Medal, “the simple geometric shapes become softer and more fluid as the puzzle grows, allowing patterns to ebb and flow.”

Geometric patterns have the capacity of creating abstract images and inspired by this possibility, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby imagined Puzzle collection available in eight colours and based on European islands.  The warm and bright shades are associated with the Mediterranean islands of Milos, Crete and Murano while the neutral colours represent the northern isles of Aland, Faroe, Gotland, Skye and Anglesey.

The second collection designed by Barber and Osgerby design studio is Mistral – a three-dimension tiles collection that will steal the scene at the Salone Del Mobile 55th edition. The shapes are based on Mediterranean roof tiles that are sometimes used as partitions. The duo explains that “the Mistral tile started from a simple detail taken from Italian ancient barns and farm buildings”.
