Element Table in resin, from Assemblage 2 by Studio Toogood

Studio Toogood have sent us photos of their latest collection, Assemblage 2. The pieces were first unveiled at a series of experimental dinners during Milan Design Week (read WGSN-homebuildlife's account here).

Studio Toogood say of the collection: "By replacing the delicate sycamore, brass and Portland stone found in the first collection with more elemental materials, Assemblage 2 seeks to reinterpret its clean geometric forms."

"Made using leather, sand-cast aluminium, melted pewter, bronze, wax and resin, Assemblage 2 is unyielding, elemental and visceral."
