Spade Chair / Rubber
◄ Overview


Spade Chair / Rubber

Faye Toogood has two related careers, either of which would make her one of the most celebrated British designers today. She started out in fashion, initially as a magazine editor, and then making her own garments; soon after she opened an atelier for the production of furnishings and interiors. The two sides of her artistic personality inform and nurture the other; for example, she makes her objects within numbered Assemblages, in a rhythm of ongoing creativity and self-disruption that echoes the collection-based logic of the fashion industry. Forms of particular importance are revisited in the different collections, given different material and aesthetic interpretation; Toogood thus has an ongoing creative conversation with herself. The Spade Chair / Rubber seen here, an elegant form partly inspired by countryside milking stools, is a particularly important example. Included in her very first Assemblage in 2010 (in plain sycamore wood), it is here rendered with a black rubber finish, lending it a chic urbanity.
