Robin (1915-2010) and Lucienne Day (1917-2010) were prolific designers whose talents earned them celebrity status. For over 60 years, the Days shared a passionate commitment to creating good, affordable design accessible to everyone. Robin and Lucienne met in 1940 at the Royal College of Art, and married in 1942. In 1948 Robin, in collaboration with Clive Latimer, won first prize in the MOMA international furniture competition. This success was followed by the high profile Festival of Britain Expo in 1951, where Lucienne’s textiles and wallpapers were exhibited alongside Robin’s furniture in the Homes and Gardens Pavilion. Robin earned the title of Royal Designer for Industry (RDI), the highest accolade for designers, in 1959. In 1962, Lucienne was only the fifth woman to be elected to the elite faculty of the RDI and the first female Master (1987-89).
