Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones – Toogood × izé
izé and Toogood are launching a new collection of hardware, Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones at the Super Natural project at the Garage, SW3 on 17th September 2010.
An extraordinary collection of products cast from found objects, Toogood’s Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones becomes a kind of Wunderkammer in itself, a series of handles and hooks which translate the organic and the geological into crafted, cast metal. In an attempt to bring some of the tactile textures of the natural world to the usually geometric realm of hardware, designer Faye Toogood has created a range of visually arresting products covering all hardware applications from door and cabinet handles to coat hooks. Using her own collection the idea is that the products can be mixed and matched, each imparting to the architecture a sense of the foraged and the found.
