Faye Toogood is a British designer. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material.

Described by its designer as “a modern tool for sitting,” Batch spade chair, this extremely-reduced, three-legged chair was created by London-based Faye Toogood. Owing its minimalist form to Toogood’s clever juxtaposition of two mundane objects: a milking stool and a spade, the solid-ash chair is now available as part of ‘BATCH’ collection which also includes a stool, coffee table, side table and a dining table designs.

‘The Spade Chair is a modern tool for sitting. The chair is an elegant and minimal silhouette inspired by the juxtaposition of a three-legged milking stool and the handle of a spade – an icon of rural life in the English countryside. This iconic Toogood piece, formerly only available as a limited-edition piece, is now in Batch production. Made in Britain from solid ash.’
