roly-poly-chair-faye-toogood-01

Roly Poly Chair, constructed from layered, high gloss fiberglass

Each of the new pieces has been developed as a clay maquette before being rendered in layered fibreglass, chosen as a medium for its tensile strength and sculptural qualities. Surfaces are polished smooth in places, left raw and untreated in others; the resultant textural dialogue is carried across into hand-woven yarn throws and the graphic, contoured Play tapestry – an abstract image derived from an infant’s building blocks.

Eduardo-Chillida-Peine-del-viento-01

“Peine del Viento” and Eduardo Chillida

The most emblematic work of Eduardo Chillida. It is designed to be manufactured in corten steel in order to stand the test of time and the strong erosion of the sea and wind. The “Peine del viento” is presented as a monumental set of three solid steel shapes, powerfully fixed to the rocks, opened like huge claws defying the laws of nature. “It took me 25 years to `hit´ with the design, from 1952 with the first comb, until 1977 with `Peine del viento´ in Donostia.”

“It’s very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better.” by Jonthan Ive
