The Bodleian Libraries Chair was the winner of the Icon Awards 2014 Furniture Design of the Year.

Product story image

The three-legged oak chair is a contemporary response to the brief which combines a strong sense of craft heritage, sculptural form and complex reader requirements. The chair is crafted to be comfortably sat in for many hours.

Product story image

Barber & Osgerby identified the rear view of the chair as critical to the concept of the design – the most visible aspect when the chair is in situ. A strong vertical timber, resembling the spines of books on shelves, forms one of the three legs that attaches to the sled base.
