In collaboration with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation, Case Furniture has revived the 675 Chair, faithfully restoring the elements and details of the 1952 original. A pioneering piece of furniture, the 675 Chair features a continuous curved plywood back with armrests in a single fluid shape. The accentuated plywood curve sits upon a sleek tubular frame and upholstered seat, creating a finely proportioned and considered form, that has stood the test of time.
In 2015, the 675 Chair was awarded the prestigious Design Guild Mark, recognising the highest standard of furniture design and celebrating the finest British designers.
Born in 1915 in Hertfordshire, British furniture designer Robin Day won a scholarship to his local art school in the early 1930's and worked for a brief period in a local furniture factory before going to the Royal College of Art. Over the last 50 years Robin Day has designed furniture for many important buildings in the UK and abroad, including concert halls and theatres, airports, stations and stadiums. His design influence has had impact on every day life, with his pioneered development of injection moulded plastic one-piece chairs. Tens of millions of Robin Day chairs have been sold bringing design innovation to a truly global audience.
