Dedon makes their first collaboration with Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for the Tibbo furniture collection. With its material mix of teak, textiles and woven fiber for the seats, the collection conveys an exceptionally rich and luxurious feel.
The Tibbo chairs are distinguished by round arms and legs and the sail-like three- dimensional curve of its thin, formed seat back. The designers share, “The beauty of turned wooden has a tactile quality like no other material. Because of the oily nature of teak, the wood feels especially soft, and so we set out to make furniture that would accentuate these properties.”
Tibbo is hand-crafted from slow-growth premium teak sourced from sustainable plantations. Premium teak offers great weather-resistance and durability even in extreme conditions.
Consisting of a dining chair, four sizes of dining table, two sizes of bench, a lounge chair, a coffee table and a side table, the collection is equally at home outdoors, where it will naturally acquire a silver-grey patina, or indoors, where it will retain its golden hue.
Overall, the collection conveys a sense of architectural rigor in its both its construction and its proportions. The large-sized dining table, measuring a spectacular 3.5 meters in length, stands on just four legs, accommodating 10 diners with ease.
But the rationality of Tibbo’s design is balanced by the warmth of the wood, the comfort of the cushions and the soft touch and natural look of the fiber, specially developed for the collection.
Tibbo is also the first collection by Dedon to use teak wood. The six-piece range combines meticulous craftsmanship, superior comfort and remarkable lightness in a design that’s distinctive, elegant and pure.
