TIBBO Armchair

Chairs from DEDON, Designed by Edward Barber, Jay Osgerby, Barber & Osgerby

Product description

57 x 68 x 78 cm


Renowned British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby created TIBBO
for an era in which indoor and outdoor living spaces are merging. DEDON’s
first collection in teak, TIBBO combines meticulous craftsmanship, superior
comfort and remarkable lightness in a design that’s distinctive, elegant and
pure. Comprising both dining and lounge elements in a mix of teak, textiles
and woven fiber, TIBBO conveys an exceptionally rich and luxurious look
and feel.

Barber and Osgerby took their initial inspiration for TIBBO from the wood
itself. “The beauty of turned wooden has a tactile quality like no other material,”
they remark. “Because of the oily nature of teak, the wood feels especially
soft, and so we decided to create furniture that would accentuate
these properties.” While most outdoor teak furniture looks, in their words,
“very rectangular and uncomfortable,” every element of TIBBO was
designed to be “as soft and tactile as possible.”
TIBBO is defined by a certain architectural rigor in both its construction and
its proportions. But the rationality of the design is balanced by the warmth
of the wood, the comfort of the cushions, the natural look of the speciallydeveloped
fiber, and the sail-like three-dimensional curve of the formed
seat backs.
The collection is hand-crafted from premium teak sourced from sustainable
plantations. Premium teak offers great weather-resistance and durability even
in extreme conditions. Indoors, TIBBO will retain its golden hue. Outdoors, if
left untreated, it naturally acquires a silver-grey patina that will, according to
the designers, “add another layer of quality to the design.”
