Love of Toogood

faye22

On Thursday last week designer Faye Toogood showed her soft shaped furniture pieces Roly Poly in fiber glass in Scandinavia for the first time, in an exhibition at the Oliver Gustav studio in Copenhagen, a perfect space for the beautiful pieces. Faye also showed some brand new sculptures – she originally trained in fine art and had plans to become  a sculptor.

Faye and Erica Toogood also showed the third collection of the Unisexouterwear clothing label the run together, which previewed only two weeks ago in Paris.

”The collection is about protection and survival against elements and strangers, we took further this idea about your coat being your cocoon and your protection”, says Erica Toogood abut the new pieces.

The new collection includes the limited series Made In House with pieces numbered up til ten, made completely in the studio – some of them in layered cling foil! ”Its extremely durable and water proof” explains Erica ”when its layered as many times as this”.

Team Sarah Widmans noir-styling for Gothenburg based estate agency Alvhem is treating the home as a movie set, ustilising the evening shades and shadows and invite the viewer to see the apartment in a ”new light”. Great to see stylists pushing the boundaries for traditional interiors photography.
