Marker, plus twenty

‘Marker, plus twenty’, an exhibition curated by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, opened last night at twentytwentyone’s River Street showroom.

Marker, plus twenty

On show for the duration of the London Design Festival, ‘Marker, plus twenty’ celebrates the launch of Marker, the new addition to Barber Osgerby’s family of Hotaru paper lanterns.

The exhibition also references twentytwentyone’s 20th anniversary and celebrates the long-standing collaboration between the two companies.

This highly personal display consists of twenty objects selected from Edward and Jay’s personal collection of curiosities from around the world, accumulated over many years. “There are,” the designers note, “quite a few gaps on our shelves at the moment.”

The objects on display include both furniture and product design and more humble everyday objects, ranging from a Thonet chair to a Japanese glass fishing net float.


Accumulated over many years, these items have been selected for their form, material or craftsmanship. Although strikingly diverse in scale, function, value and age, each object has been an inspiration in some way or other.


Together they offer an intriguing insight into the influences and interests of one of Britain’s foremost design duos.


‘Marker, plus twenty’ will be on display at our River Street showroom, 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, until Sunday 25th September.
