'Reclining chair' by Robin Day reissued by twentytwentyone

Designed year after the breakthrough, 1951 Armchair for the Royal Festival Hall commissioned

on the occasion of the Festival of Britain, this modernist ‘Reclining chair’ by the acclaimed, late British designer Robin Day has been reissued by a London-based brand specialising in classic 20th and 21st century furniture, twentytwentyone. With its effortless, pared-down appearance and distinct, steel-rod legs, ‘Reclining chair’ is, along with the now-ubiquitous 1963 stacking ‘Polypropylene chair‘, one of Day’s most iconic designs.

“A good design should fulfil its purpose well, be soundly constructed and should express in its design this purpose and construction.” - Robin Day

 

More about the ‘Reclining Chair’:

 

‘The high comfort levels and clearly articulated structure fulfilled Robin Day’s design sensibilities. The modernist vocabulary of the Reclining chair encapsulates principles that were inherent in much of his wide body of work.

 

‘Softwood frame with foam and elasticated webbing. Fixed upholstery in range of fabrics and leather. Adjustable head-cushion. Powder-coated steel frame. Solid oak armrest with satin lacquer finish.’
