The design work of Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby is always a favorite. This is a video the firm did to support their Map Table for Vitra. Another stop motion video for their TipTon chair for Vitra is pretty nice too (view here).

Sidenote: Visiting the Vitra campus Weil am Rhine, Germany is a “must see.”
