Review The Full Return Policy

This book captures the raw moment of inception behind a designer’s collection. Assemblage 6 started off with almost 300 maquettes: chairs, lamps, stools, or daybeds made of wire, cardboard, tape, and canvas, or the everyday materials to be found in Faye Toogood’s studio. But having lined up these rather crude, almost childlike maquettes, the collection, in essence, was decided. Seventeen were chosen to be scaled up to life-size works, and here we have an immersive journey through all the original maquettes and their occasional passage into the real world of furniture/sculpture, a book that plays with the sense of dissimulation evident in the final artworks, or the fact that some objects are not always what they seem at first glance.

The Man Booker–nominated author Sophie Mackintosh opens with this idea in her short story, while the book closes on an essay by the independent writer and curator Glenn Adamson, who ultimately provides context for the collection and process as a whole.

Faye Toogood

London, United Kingdom

Faye Toogood is a British designer with academic training in the theory and practice of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry.

Toogood’s objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered ‘Assemblages’. This allows her to avoid the standard and instead 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.

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.
