Robin & Lucinne Day @ Pallant House

Exhibition: Design and the Modern Interior

As Festival of Britain fever is set to sweep over us again fifty years on from the original event with the V&A’s forthcoming exhibition British Design 1948-2012, get ahead of the curve with this exhibition of Robin and Lucinne Day exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester from the 26th March – 26th June 2011. The exhibition has already recieved a range of press coverage from the Times to Women’s Hour. In the words of the exhibition organisers:

‘Robin (1915–2010) and Lucienne Day (1917–2010) are the most celebrated British designer couple of the post-war era. Working in a range of media they pioneered the introduction of modern design during the 1950s and 1960s, sharing a commitment to low cost, mass-produced, good quality furniture and fabric.

This new exhibition, drawn from the collection of H Kirk Brown III and Jill A Wiltse in Denver, USA, and guest-curated by Shanna Shelby, focuses on the furniture designs of  Robin Day and textile designs of his wife Lucienne and will fittingly be held in Chichester, the Days’ home town.’
