We have here another news from Phillips de Pury & Company. At The London Design Week we visited the exhibition of the work by Faye Toogood at Phillips de Pury & Company gallery and there we explored hidden characters of the materials.
We were invited by Brent Dzekciorius, retail director at Phillips de Pury to explore this exclusive collection, have a nice talk about it and make this photo essay in which we try to express the main substance of this furniture series.
Faye Toogood is no longer creator of furniture, but her sensitive approach to styling, installations project and to the qualities of things brought her to furniture design one year ago when she launched her first collection called Assemblage 1. This year she has presented Delicate Interference: Assemblage 3 for Phillips de Pury & Company auction house and gallery. In her designs, many of the influences meet into the whole new aesthetic of the decadence, decor, philosophy, darkness and original materiality.
Working in bronze, aluminium, steel, glass and resin, Toogood has designed a dressing table, floor lamp, sconce, jewellery stand, armoured bench, chair and tables. All the objects are based on the exploring of the hidden beauties of the materials. Designer was inspired by nature mimicking or insects bodies and thanks to the alchemy and chemical agents she has created new material world in which she examines iridescence as a natural optical force.
