The creation of architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows, Bassam Fellows is an American luxury lifestyle company grounded in the principles of impeccable craftsmanship, architectural rigour and sensual minimalism. Its pioneering ‘Craftsman Modern’ aesthetic was debuted in 2003 at Salone del Mobile, with the launch of the now iconic Bassam Fellows Tractor Stool.
The duo’s work spans architectural projects and interiors, but it is their furniture that caught the eye of Staffan Tollgård and which is available through Tollgard’s London showrooms.
Bassam Fellows’ Geometric Series celebrates the sublimity of pure geometry, as championed by the Wiener Werkstätte and the Bauhaus. A hero of the series and a modernist staple, the CB-41 Daybed is meticulously crafted in solid wood and features cushions hand-stitched from butter-soft Scandinavian leather. This is a piece that will age beautifully; destined to become a true future heirloom.
The Brutus Chair, launched in Milan in 2020, came to designer Craig Bassam in a dream. Seemingly ‘cut’ rather than ‘built, it expertly marries the Brutalist tendencies of Le Corbusier et al with a contemporary, organic smoothness. A gently curving solid wood frame supports a seat in either Vienna cane or hand-stitched upholstery upon impossibly smooth elliptical legs. A masterpiece of furniture design.
