Eponymous brand established by sisters Faye and Erica Toogood. Faye's celebrated work as a designer has been focused in furniture, interiors, and sculpture. Erica has honored her craft in tailoring as a pattern cutter for several London fashion designers. Their clothing line, inspired by traditional workwear combines their sensitivity to material and shape.
Two cultures are fused together by the serene act of pouring.
A shared history of brewed leaves, of porcelain, of the intricacy and intimacy of the tea ceremony.
A moment of calm that crosses continents to find reassuring shape.
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.
