FOGO ISLAND SHOP
For Brompton Design District, Fogo Island will present a collection of distinctive pieces including The Long Bench by Ineke Hans, the Bertha Chair by Donna Wilson, and Nick Herder’s Puppy Table trilogy. All the furniture designs are handmade by the Fogo Island Shop’s skilled woodworkers and embody the Shorefast Foundation’s holistic model of advancing economic nutrition and cultural resilience for small communities. Each work is accompanied by an ‘Economic Nutrition Label’ that brings transparency to the purchasing process, showing how it is invested in the local community and how it impacts the broader economy. The pieces embody dignified, local employment, sustainable environmental practices and fair working conditions both at home on Fogo Island and with suppliers.
