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.”
