Furniture by Faye Toogood for Opening Ceremony
Faye Toogood has filled a pop-up fashion boutique in London with rubber-coated furniture and glass tabletops mounted on piles of industrial fabrics.
The Opening Ceremony shop in Covent Garden features tables and chairs based on recurring shapes first seen in her Assemblage collection from 2010.
One table has sheets of foam, carpet and other textured fabrics sandwiched between its glass tabletop and supporting trestles.
Another glass tabletop appears to balance delicately on a foam-stuffed tube, a black sphere and a stack of fabric. An earlier version of this table used stone, brass and sycamore as supports.
Upstairs, a similar table rests on an empty white tube, a skeletal sphere and cube with threaded sides. A white display cabinet also uses thread to create a subtle screen door.
The Spade chair, with its distinctive handle-shaped backrest, has been reproduced in ash wood, and one of the chairs is also coated in rubber.
Rubberised geometric constructions by Studio Toogoodprovide an abstract window display.

Here's some more information from Studio Toogood:
Studio Toogood has created a series of mechanical-looking constructions to coincide with the launch of Opening Ceromony’s first pop-up shop in London. Reflecting the immediacy and the temporary nature of the “pop up”, the rubberised pieces marry the handmade with the industrial. Each constellation plays with the ideas of construction, transparency, texture and abstraction that are characteristic of Studio Toogood’s aesthetic.
Working with Opening Ceremony, Faye Toogood has created a number of pieces to complement the architecturally deconstructed pop-up shop. Toogood’s pieces are featured throughout the space, and include stacked industrial forms in the basement, and translucent, light pieces on the ground floor.
