Graduate in Art History from Bristol University, Faye Toogood joined the cult magazine World of Interiors and developed close to Min Hogg, the fabled founding editor, a singular eye on the object and beyond, her talent to realize complex visual narratives. In 2008 Studio Toogood opened as a creative services consultancy and collaborations with a litany of design luminaries followed, among them Comme des Garçons, Tom Dixon, and Alexander McQueen. Furniture and product design became soon the venue for a more personal expression. From 2011, ‘Assemblage One’, then ‘Assemblage Two’ and ‘Assemblage Three’ collections were produced by British artisans. An admirer of minimalist sculpture and British Modernists, but also Italian designers from the 50s to the 70s, Faye Toogood considers the relationships between simple forms to form objects. Primary geometrical elements are combined in a game of construction uniting conceptual with functional.
In 2012, Phillips de Pury & Company devoted a solo exhibition to her in London.
