Robin Day Design Classics launched at John Lewis

Robin Day's iconic Polypropylene side chair and armchair have been re-launched at John Lewis in their three original colours.

I have been working with Hille for The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation to make these fantastic designs available again as Robin originally intended. If you get the chance please check them out. The sublimely beautiful Polyside chair now features the original P5 frame with legs that appear to gently 'kiss' where they meet.

Designed in the UK and manufactured in the UK, they are examples of British Design at its best and at a fraction of the price usually associated with 'Design Classics'. Robin's aim was always to make good, affordable design accessible to everyone.

These products are endorsed by The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation as authentic new productions of Robin Day's original 1963 and 1967 designs.

John Lewis Oxford Street will be part of the 'Day in London' design trail taking place during the London Design Festival.

To see rare and previously unseen work which is extremely worth visiting is 'Robin Day: Works in Wood' at the V&A and 'Robin Day: Redefining British Design' at the new Case Furniture showroom. Enjoy!
