◄ Overview

Roly-Poly Chair / Earth

London designer Faye Toogood works in highly-considered discrete collections which she calls “Assemblages,” each one based on its own material investigations, reference sources, and conceptual premises. This rounded chair in cast cob composite – a material used in earthen architecture – is one from her fifth Assemblage, which was based on a pantheistic cosmology of primary elements: water, earth, and moon. Its rounded lines are friendly enough, but also evoke ancient precepts of femininity. “Many people have likened the chair to a baby elephant or an African fertility chair, and comment on its references to Art Deco and Sixties geometry.  I think she is all of those things,” says Toogood.  

Regular price $22,500
