Roly Poly Collection
The Roly Poly Collection, consisting of an armchair and a sofa, embodies the concepts of furniture and sculpture, thus representing the philosophy of Driade in a perfect way. The characteristic of these monobloc furnishing accessories is the bowl shape of the seat, rounded and welcoming, with cylindrical legs and delicately linear shapes that give it a reassuring and massive look. Made of rotationally molded polyethylene, the low seat has been enriched with soft padded cushions that nestle in its curved shape for an engaging sitting experience. Armchair and sofa are available in a variety of colors to complement any type of interior or exterior decoration.

British designer Faye Toogood has emerged as one of the most prominent women in contemporary design today. “Whether you are a fashion designer, a furniture designer, or an interior designer, the materials you can get your hands on are essential,” she says. Toogood was born in the UK in 1977 and graduated with a BA in the History of Art in 1998 from Bristol University. Upon graduation, she worked as a prop stylist at The World of Interiors before establishing Studio Toogood in 2008. Working in a diverse range of disciplines from sculpture to furniture and fashion, Toogood often reinterprets and reinvents classical tropes and references from art history by introducing a new aesthetic. Since the conception of her immediately recognizable voluminous Roly-Poly chair (2014), she has been considered among the great form-givers of the 21st century. Her career is marked out by the discrete Assemblages, each of which conjures a compact world of interrelated ideas, forms, and materials. Her first collaboration with the gallery, Assemblage 5, was inspired by a visit to Henri Matisse’s Chapelle du Rosairede Vence explored ancient animist notions of the elements water, earth and moon through a personal lens. In Assemblage 6, Toogood set out to “unlearn” the process of design and build a new vocabulary for furniture by recasting sculptural maquettes made from mundane materials found in the studio. Her works have been acquired for the permanent collections of institutions worldwide, including the Corning Museum of Glass, NY; Dallas Museum of Art, TX; Denver Museum of Art, CO; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA.
