Its versatile design makes it suitable for various settings, serving as a convenient place to hang coats or sit and unlace shoes in a hallway or dressing area. With its beautifully crafted concave seat, the chair offers both style and comfort, making it a suitable choice for dining as well.READ MORE
Each stage of Toogood’s career is marked and catalogued into numbered “Assemblages” of work. Conceptually, formally and materially, they create a multilayered body of artistic expression. The Spade Chair is part of her first assemblage, which debuted in 2010 at the London Design Festival as part of her exhibition “Super Natural”. Simple geometric forms and raw materials are combined in this case to create a comprehensive and relevant collection.
Assemblage 1, Faye Toogood’s first foray into furniture and object design, pays homage to rural life, English-sourced materials, and craftsmanship. Toogood works alongside master artisans and boutique fabricators who celebrate the rawness and individuality of the materials they employ. Each item is meticulously crafted by hand, resulting in objects that bear the imprint of their creation. Natural blemishes, imperfections or irregularities, therefore, should not be misconstrued as flaws, but rather as distinguishing features of a one-of-a-kind handmade item.
Faye Toogood (Rutland, England, 1977) has become one of the most influential form-givers of contemporary design since the introduction of her instantly recognizable, voluminous Roly-Poly chair (2014). Her experimental approach to design, which encompasses apparel, fine art, home furnishings and interiors, has yielded a highly sculptural body of work that is the result of pure instinct and self-expression.READ LESS
