All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. Biography Faye Toogood is a British designer. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. With an academic training in the theory and practice of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry, Toogood approaches product design with a singular and acutely honed eye. Her highly sculptural work, while showing an astute respect for the past, is derived from pure self-expression and instinct. Toogood’s objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered ‘Assemblages’. This allows her to avoid the formulaic, to experiment with the materials and processes that dominate her thinking at a particular time. With each Assemblage, she engages not only with the products themselves but also with the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited, working across multiple disciplines to create a single body of work with an intuitive and unified narrative

About the Design

Roly-Poly Armchair

Designed by Faye Toogood
Since founding her eponymous studio in 2008, English designer Faye Toogood (b. 1977) has released her visionary works in a series of numbered Assemblages, which is the term she uses to refer to her furniture collections. The wonderfully chunky Roly-Poly armchair is from the fourth, launched at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2014. As its name suggests, it is part of a series based on squat, bulbous shapes that comprise chairs, tables and benches.The armchair is likely the most roly-poly of the line, with its concave seat taking the shape of an ice cream scoop, sides swooped high enough to account for armrests. Toogood’s jumping-off point for the collection was her own experience with pregnancy and motherhood, an inspiration that is multifaceted: For one, there are the rounded shapes associated with fertility and, literally, pregnancy; then, the resulting pieces feel inherently childlike, as though drawn from a storybook illustration, and are the result, the designer has said, of seeing the world through her children’s eyes.Toogood originally created the Roly-Poly armchair in small batches, handcrafting each chair from a clay model and realizing the piece in fiberglass. A collaboration with the Italian manufacturer Driade brought the seat into larger-scale production in an iteration made from polyethylene, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It comes in ochre yellow, red brick, peat, charcoal, concrete and flesh colors.
