Squash | Armchair

Faye Toogood

The Squash armchair, with its generous and snug contours, is made with a rigid trestle frame made of polimex®, which supports the large, soft cushioning upholstered in Pelle Frau® or a combination of leather-fabric, with removable covering. The frame and legs are lightly padded, making them pleasant to the touch. The legs of the base are upholstered in leather. The seat and armrest cushioning are made of polyester wadding and differentiated-density polyurethane foam for greater comfort. The seat base is made of birch plywood.

The color combinations recommended by the designer for the Squash armchair are Cream, Sage, Blue and Brown.

Concept and Design

Softness, boldness and fun all in the one collection: Squash, designed by British artist Faye Toogood, captivates with its flippant nonchalance, starting with its playful and sensual name, reflecting a soft and sculptural approach to design. The collection is comfortable and cozy right from the first glance. Exuberant and bold, yet gentle and reassuring forms interact with a mix of soft and rigid materials. The flowing contours and soft padding disrupt the static essence of formal furniture. Traditional English folk elements are reworked and combined with 1970s influences. Squash suggests a notion of simple, contemporary elegance based on unique objects that work well alone, together, or combined with other furnishings.

Designed by
Faye Toogood

Faye Toogood is a British Designer whose practice encompasses interior design, homewares, fine art and fashion, and refuses to be constrained by a single discipline or defined way of working. 

Faye studied Art History at Bristol University and was Interiors Editor at The World of Interiors for eight years before founding Toogood, her London-based design studio in 2008. She has since become one of the most recognisable figures in the design and art industry, whose work has been exhibited and collected by Museums around the world including The Victoria and Albert London, NGV Melbourne, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Corning Museum of Glass, New York, and the Faberge Museum in St. Petersburg.

Faye was raised in the British countryside. A magpie’s instinct and obsession with landscape continue to permeate everything she designs, whether it be a bronze door handle cast from an abandoned skull, a fashion collection inspired by hay bales, or a house interior with the brooding palette of an English sky. Toogood brings a distinctly sculptural approach to the art of furniture design, with pieces such as the ‘Spade’ chair and the ‘Roly-Poly’ chair achieving iconic status through their strong geometry and form. 

Describing herself as an ‘outsider’ whose work defies categorisation, Faye has created a studio which allows a movement between genres. Architects, sculptors, furniture makers and illustrators cross-pollinate on every project, producing work that is rigorous, poetic and genuinely avant-garde.
