Concept

We didn’t choose this just so we could say, “We dig this chair.” No more puns, promise (even though its designer’s name is Toogood). The Spade chair harks back to the English rural tradition and an agricultural economy interleaved with everyday life. With a background in art industry, the British-born Faye Toogood rejects the sentimental view of the countryside in favour of a celebration of hard-wearing functionality.

This hardy chair suggests the handle of a spade as well as the classic, threelegged milking stool. It’s a working piece. You can pile your towels on it in the bathroom, or unlace your muddy boots in the hallway. The shallow concave of the oval sit surface can be a stained Navy Blue, or left in its original, natural ash colour.
An ode to the English countryside. Or perhaps an elegy?

This chair is a mix between the classic milking stool and the handle of a spade. Pile your towels on it in the bathroom, use it to unlace your muddy boots in the hallway or exhibit it as a minimalistic artwork in the living room… You could also use it as a chair in your dining room.
