The 'Caged Elements' Chair is the very first throne seat by star of British designer Faye Toogood. Sophistication, elegant simplicity, and a sense of timelessness are central in this collectible design work, conveyed by clean primary shapes, the authenticity of the materials and the weight matching its large dimensions. "For me, it is reminiscent of those high backed chairs from the English Arts and Crafts movement. But then, with the curve, it has some references to Art Deco. All my pieces start with clean, geometric shapes. They’re like building blocks. I’m not interested in creating new, futuristic silhouettes." The simple cube, sphere and cylinder shapes – fundamental elements in Toogood’s vocabulary – are here elegantly combined to form a 210cm high-backed chair. Evoking the Rennie Mackintosh throne-like chair, but also Shiro Kuramata for its minimalism and use of mesh, this design in a constructivist spirit is highlighted by the contrast between colors and materials: a simple Hopton white stone cube, a cylinder structure in brass-plated steel mesh, and a rubber foam sphere like a green agate stone. “Regarding the brass-plated steel mesh, the dipping was a real Challenge. I wanted the back of the chair as high as it could possibly go. The height was determined by the size of the dipping tank we eventually found at a place that had done large-scale dips for the London Olympics." The 'Caged Elements' Chair is exclusively produced and sold by Galerie BSL in a limited edition of 8 pieces + 2 artist proofs. It can be custom-made in other finishes. Pricing does not include 20% VAT applicable in the EU only.
