Robin & Lucienne
Why have I posted a boring old armchair on my blog? For a start this is a design classic made for the Festival of Britain in 1951. Robin Day dominated post-war domestic culture with his ergonomic, affordable, easy-to-manufacture, elegant and stackable furniture. His wife created abstract fabrics compatible with his designs. Robin and Lucienne Day: Design and the Modern Interior is showing at the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, West Sussex, until 26 June (title link). Admission is £7.50 or £4 with the new National Art Pass. CLICK for a BBC News audio slideshow.
