Thanks to their daughter, Paula, Robin & Lucienne Day (star designer couple whose input to the British Modern design is equivalent to what Charles & Ray Eames brought to the US) are in the limelight again. London-based design store twentytwentyone is hosting a selling exhibition of almost a hundred pieces of furniture and objects from Robin and Lucienne Day’s home. The designers, who spent 70 years living together (until Lucienne’s death in 2010, followed a few months later by Robin Day’s), collected or made each of those pieces, gathered and exhibited for the first time.
The At Home with the Days auction closes at 6pm today, Sunday 21st September. All proceeds benefit the charity foundation in their names.
