British designer Faye Toogood has launched a pop-up ‘contemporary café’ for the London Design Festival
BACK ROOM is a celebration of the ‘post-industrial’ era – the resurgence of individuals and small collectives applying their own skills within the urban city to produce, make, manufacture and sell direct.
The workers at Studio Toogood invite visitors to see behind the scenes of their north London canal-side location to experience a modest, back-room setting. Find the beauty in the utilitarian and the austere whilst tucking into a new take on a ploughmans, ‘The M25 Luncheon’, served up by food designers Arabeschi di Latte
using ingredients gathered from within the M25, washed down with a mug of locally brewed beer.
In a bid to industrialise craftsmanship, Faye Toogood will be launching her latest collection of furniture: ‘BATCH’. Pieces formerly available only as limited editions have now been made accessible through small-scale production. Made in Britain. Available Worldwide.
Saturday 15th – Friday 21st September, 11am – 5pm
