Two versatile two designers, creators of museum exhibit designs, furniture, radios, beautiful fabrics and wallpapers.
[Robin & Lucienne Day. Contemporary design pioneers] The book, structured in time spans, from the early 1930s onward, outlines the multiple aspects of the work of the Days. With extreme rigor Lesley Jackson documents the activities of the designers, reflecting the very independent spirit of Robin Day and Lucienne Conradi. Ranked among the most outstanding English designers of the postwar era, true forerunners of contemporary design, the Days designed installations for exhibitions and fairs, as well as many chairs in polypropylene and traditional materials. Their most famous chairs include: Hillestak (1950), 675 and Stamford (1952), Q Stak and Q Rod (1953), Q Swivel (1954) and Chevron (1959). The book also offers full documentation of their textile and wallpaper design, based on the graphics of Lucienne Conradi, and a detailed catalogue of the works of both designers. A complete monograph on the work of two 20th-century design pioneers.
