Designer Faye Toogood has the rare ability to balance morbidity with refinement. This is best seen in the interiors of her London house (note the skull beneath a pair of Perriand sconces) and in her own designs, her artwork verging on unsettling. In 2010 Toogood created the Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones series of hardware with European brand Izé and we've admired the knobs and hooks ever since. But more as objects—we're left wondering how they would look in situ without being too gimmicky. Toogood shows us. Above: The hardware on a door opening into Toogood's dining room.

Above: The Bone Lever Handle 2 , seen in Toogood's own home (top), is a little over five inches long. Above: The Bone Coat Hook 1 has two bones to hang items from. Above: The Bone Coat Hook 2 is a simple cross section resembling plated bone marrow. Above: The Skull Door Knocker is shown here in dark bronze. Above: The Drawer Pull Handle is a short bone, a little less than five inches in length.
