Product description

Synopsis

Robin and Lucienne Day have worked independently in a wide range of design disciplines, including furniture, fabrics, ceramics, wallpapers, exhibition design and graphics. This book surveys their careers, using material from their own archives.

About the Author

Lesley Jackson is an independent writer and curator specializing in 20th century design. She is the author of many highly-acclaimed books on post-war design, including The New Look: Design in the Fifties (1991), 'Contemporary' Architecture and Interiors of the 1950s (1994) and The Sixties: Decade of Design Revolution (1998). An expert on modern textiles, her recent books include From Atoms to Patterns: Crystal Structure Designs from the 1951 Festival of Britain (2007) and Shirley Craven and Hull Traders: Revolutionary Fabrics and Furniture 1957-1980 (2009). In 2001 she curated the major exhibition Robin and Lucienne Day: Pioneers of Contemporary Design and wrote the book of the same name, held at the Barbican Art Gallery, London. A retrospective celebration of the Days' work was also held this year at the Pallant House Art Gallery in Chicester.
