We can't promise we're going to blog all week about Robin and Lucienne Day, but we're going to give it a damn good try.  Inspired by our recent trip to the Pallant House Gallery, we're currently putting together a post on the Lounge Chair designed by Robin Day in 1951 for the Royal Festival Hall.  So whilst we beaver away in the background, here's a short introduction - using fancy moving pictures this time - to some of the wonders created by this now-infamous British couple.

  1. What a wonderful video! I hadn't seen it before and enjoyed it very much. Watching it made me appreciate their contributions all the more, but it also made me a little sad to think of losing them both last year. They will be missed.

  2. Mid2Mod: Hearing their voices and learning first-hand about their inspiratons is quite a treat. We haven't been able to track down the full-length version of this film, but if we do, we'll let you know.
