Case, Heal’s and the Robin + Lucienne Day Foundation
‘A Day to Remember’
675 Chair Project
Margo Selby was selected as one of fifteen leading designers to create a unique cloth paying tribute to one of Britain’s greatest designers – by customising Robin Day’s iconic 675 chair.
Initiated by Case Furniture, in partnership with Heal’s and the Robin + Lucienne Day Foundation, the project, entitled ‘A Day to Remember’, supported young British designers by contributing to the educational work of the Foundation with funds generated by an exhibition and auction.
Margo created Madeline, in greens and gold, the muted tertiaries and bright accents so beloved of Robin’s wife, textile designer Lucienne. The fabric has a clear relationship to Margo’s handwoven Lampas works – an example of our ‘Art into Industry’ approach. The scale of the pattern and size of the repeat results in each application being unique.
The other invited designers were: Eleanor Pritchard, Donna Wilson, Charlene Mullen, Cristian Zuzunaga, Wallace & Sewell, Eley Kishimoto, Hannah Waldron, Beatrice Larkin, Catherine MacGruer, Darkroom, Bill Amberg, Stitch by Stitch, David Irwin and Christopher Farr.
