Faye Toogood is a British designer with an academic training in the theory and practise of fine art. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. Toogood’s work is handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. Her highly sculptural work shows an astute respect for the past and derives from pure self-expression and instinct.
