A stunning wooden slate bench designed by Robin Day, manufactured by Hille in the United Kingdom around 1950. The bench has a very strong V-shaped black lacquered metal base and high quality wooden slates in a beautiful warm brown colour. It’s style allows the bench to fit in many different decors and interiors, definitely drawing the attention with it’s minimalist style. An impressive and rare find of quality midcentury Dutch design! The bench remains in good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Robin Day (1915-2010), British designer trained in furniture making at a technical high school and a graduate of the Royal College of Art, helped pioneer a mid-century British style. His graphics and his furniture adhered to the modernist philosophy that well designed pieces, mass produced and sold at affordable prices, would improve the quality of life and bolster the optimism of a nation recovering from World War II. Working in close collaboration with his wife Lucienne, an award winning textile designer, Day gave England an international reputation as, if not one of the major centers of design, at least an environment in which good design was born and appreciated.
