Pallant House Gallery are exhibiting a collection of the work of designer couple Robin & Lucienne Day. Robin Day was a furniture designer. His work has the characteristic midcentury angular look typical of the era. He was especially famous for creating the iconic polypropylene stacking chair, ubiquitous at schools and church halls. But it was Lucienne's textile work that I was especially interested in. She created unique, abstract designs which typify the "atomic" design era.
For 50 years the couple worked, together but independently, in a shared studio, and their house grew to be considered the epitome of 1950s sophistication.
