Barber Osgerby: In the Making

The Design Museum’s latest exhibition In The Making opened yesterday, curated by award winning and well celebrated designers Barber & Osgerby.

Open from now until May 4th, In The Making captures over 20 objects mid-manufacture showing them off at the ‘centre-stage’ of their design process. An interesting range of products have been chosen by the British design duo, from everyday objects such as a cricket bat, £2 coin and coke can to Barber Osgerby’s very own London 2012 Olympic Torch, which won the Design Museum’s Design of the Year in 2012.

The objects have been selected because they each have an unexpected  quality about them in those moments, hours or days before they assume  their final, recognisable form. These points in the making process capture a  peculiar and unconventional slice of time in the production of everyday  objects such as tennis balls, banknotes and even diamonds.The Design Museum

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby comment ‘We have always been  fascinated by the making process as it is an integral part of our work. We have curated an exhibition that will provide a platform to capture and reveal  a frozen moment in the manufacturing process and unveils an everyday
object in its unfinished state. Often the object is as beautiful, if not more so,  than the finished product!’
