The November edition of Livingetc

Posted by & filed under Media, Press.

We are delighted to feature in this month’s Livingetc; huge thanks to the magazine and to Fiona McCarthy who came to the Design Store to interview Staffan and Monique.  The conversation ranged between the practice’s signature style, current projects, our obsession with textures and Staffan’s dream dinner party guest list.  We’re proud to be tucked between other fascinating pages, design tips and great homes, and want to say thank you for the insightful and generous article.  Make sure you pick up a copy (or three) …

Staffan Tollgard, John Boyd & GHYCZY for Decorex 2016

Posted by & filed under Events, Fairs, London.

This year at Decorex, Staffan Tollgard Design Group has designed the John Boyd Textile stand using furniture by GHYCZY. The concept of ‘Luxury Redefined’ fuses traditional textiles with contemporary furniture.

Using original historic looms, John Boyd’s Textiles are made from horsehair, which ensures the highest quality, durability and natural fire resistance for the use of upholstery, wall coverings and screens. By selecting GHYCZY’s S02 chair, Staffan Tollgard Design Group is able to explore an intriguing contrast between the engineered metal construction and traditional horsehair.

GHYCZY will also launch a new glass top for their classic T48 table, which is made out of a unique blend of solar panel glass. Technology sits in the core of GHYCZY’s designs and this new innovative product highlights their technical and artistic strengths.

What was your route into design? 

Although a baptism by fire, I am very grateful to the Inchbald for helping me translate a passion for design into a tangible and very focused education. I emerged with a strong insight into how to create functional and livable spaces, and the foundations of the language of design that an Inchbald education gives you.

How does your background in film translate into or influence your work now? 

Both Monique and I came from the world of film. That’s how we told stories. Now we tell our clients’ stories. They have chosen to live in a particular place, in a particular kind of architecture and in a very personal way. They have probably travelled and brought back important memories of times and places with them. We want to bring these together to tell a simplified, single story that binds environment, architecture, function and character. It’s important to tell one story; to choose from the many clues and influences the single, important strand that can run through a design. We’ve evolved a short hand for this, the ‘red thread’.
