The Roly-Poly chair, standing on four chunky legs, this dish-shaped seat is crafted in fibreglass for strength and durability. A hand-woven yarn throw offers an element of textural contrast.
Faye Toogood is a British designer. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material.
With an academic training in the theory and practise of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry, Toogood approaches product design with a singular and acutely honed eye. Her highly sculptural work, while showing an astute respect for the past, is derived from pure self-expression and instinct.
Toogood’s objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered ‘Assemblages’. This allows her to avoid the formulaic, to experiment with the materials and processes that dominate her thinking at a particular time. With each Assemblage, she engages not only with the products themselves but also with the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited, working across multiple disciplines to create a single body of work with an intuitive and unified narrative.

The Paulistano Armchair
H 82 x W 70 x D 70 cmFollow us
The Paulistano Armchair is a piece that holds its own with the iconic chairs from Alvar Aalto, Eames, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and other European classics.
Designed by the 2006 Pritzker Prize winner Paulo Mendes da Rocha, it shows that the purity and the elegance of its lines are timeless: a masterpiece.
Designed in 1957 by the Brazilian modernist architect, the Paulistano armchair was part, for many years, of the lounge of the Athletic Club of São Paulo.
The constructivist concept of the structure, made up from a single bended steel bar, dressed with this incredible mesh cover, procure to this armchair an esthetical lightness and an incomparable comfort. The Paulistano armchair is part of the famous permanent
collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA).

The Mantis Lounge Chair by BassamFellows is inspired by the noble praying mantis, the signature stance and powerful limbs of this chair offers a study in contrasts. Strong and elegant, sharp and curved, thick and thin — the Mantis is sturdy and solid, yet visually light. Designer Craig Bassam conceived the chair to be a new American classic, an object that possessed measurable gravitas and wasn’t overly indebted to the classic dining chairs associated with mid-century Europe.
From certain angles, the Mantis Chair feels almost like a piece of sculpture. Carved entirely from solid wood, it is a new alternative to the classic and indestructible courthouse chair. Unlike many of its predecessors, however, comfort is at the forefront, with a commodious, ergonomically shaped seat. A hand-stitched leather cushion can be added to amplify both comfort and luxury.
A little over ten years ago architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories.
