Concept

We started working in 2006 with London based designer duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, long before they really became well known. They described their design for Quodes as ”an exercise in graphic composition and organized volumes, about proportion, modularity and purity with character”

We were impressed by the amount of perfectionism and time Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby put in, for example to design the seemingly simple grip of the doors … its appearance changes with the light during the day. Technically it requires milling in 3D and a lot of skill for lacquering.

What started as a ‘cabinet object’ for Quodes’ initial collection developed over time: new colour combinations were added, veneer bodies, new configurations, alternative legs, new technology… so it became a complete range, but still, each cabinet feels like a personal object due to the subtle but iconic design details, often supported by a personal choice of colour(s).
