Faye Toogood was born in the UK in 1977 and graduated in History of Art in 1998 from the University of Bristol. After graduating she worked as a props stylist at The World of Interiors, before founding Studio Toogood in 2008. Working in a wide range of disciplines, from sculpture to furniture and fashion, Toogood often reinterprets and reinvents classic clichés and art history references while introducing a new aesthetic. Since the conception of the Roly-Poly chair (2014) she has been considered one of the most important women in contemporary design and among one of the great shape givers of the 21st century. Her works have been purchased for the permanent collections of various museums around the world and Toogood now lives and works in London.
