FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FAYE TOOGOOD TO LAUNCH THIRD FURNITURE COLLECTION, DELICATE INTERFERENCE: ASSEMBLAGE 3, AT PHILLIPS DE PURY & COMPANY
VIEWING: 17 SEPTEMBER – 4 OCTOBER
LOCATION: Phillips de Pury & Company at Claridge’s, 45-47 Brook Street, London W1
London – British Designer, Faye Toogood, launched her third furniture
collection, Delicate Interference: Assemblage 3, exclusively with Phillips de
Pury & Company during the 2011 London Design Festival.
The series examines iridescence as a natural optical force through new and recontextualised
works in bronze, aluminium, steel, glass and resin. By a touch of
alchemy she uses man-made materials to create a natural phenomenon,
mimicking nature’s ability to attract and protect through the refraction of light.
The entire series is on view at Phillips de Pury’s, Brook Street gallery with
Studio Toogood directing the exhibition design. All works in the collection are
available exclusively through Phillips de Pury.
"Faye Toogood has developed one of the most compelling catalogues of
design work in recent years. Her latest, Assemblage 3: Delicate Interference,
offers an intelligent, timely study of material, form and finish. We are thrilled to
be a part of this watershed exhibition for Faye." Brent Dzekciorius, Director of
Retail Operations, Phillips de Pury & Company.
NOTES FOR EDITORS:
The exhibition will be on view to the public from 16 September until 4 October
