Celebrating Robin Day.

Robin Day
Design Within Reach honors the life and work of Robin Day, who died November 9 at the age of 95. The British furniture designer was described by the Design Museum as “a deeply moral and highly principled designer, who was not interested in making a design statement, but in solving practical problems in the most rigorous, efficient and cost-effective way.” In 1962, the designer stated that “a good design must fulfill its purpose well, be soundly constructed, and should express in its design this purpose and construction.” His wife, the influential textile designer Lucienne Day, passed away earlier this year.
