Expanding beyond interior design, fashion and furniture, the British designer has developed her first range of homeware with a sculptural approach
Toogood, the London-based studio of designer Faye Toogood, has launched its first collection of homeware designs. Named Toogood Homeware, the range has been created to complement the brand’s existing line of sculptural furniture. The collection is split between two capsules: Dough, which includes monochrome ceramic pieces such as mugs, jugs and bowls, and Plough, comprising two minimal yet geometric throws.
The Dough capsule – named to highlight the common ground of kneading in both baking and pottery – comprises a mug, jug, platter, bowl, vase and centrepiece, all hand-shaped in the Toogood studio and cast in earthenware.
The mugs and pitchers boast chunky, outsized handles, while the platter has a rounded swelling quality that references rising dough. The two decorative pieces – the vase and centrepiece – echo the organic swelling appearance of the tableware. Glazed in Portugal, all the pieces come in a cream or charcoal finish.
The Plough capsule features two hand-woven decorative throws created using eco-friendly merino wool, comprised of broken-down pinstripes in geometric arrangements.
‘This debut homeware collection has been over two years ago in the making,’ says the designer. ‘The inspiration first came whilst I was exploring common items from the kitchen such as the soft volumes of rising dough and hand-shaped leavened pastries.’
The Toogood Homeware collection is due to expand in the future.
