Assemble reveals timber ‘forest’ celebrating Robin Day’s work

  • Comment

Turner Prize-shortlisted practice Assemble has created an installation at the V&A to mark the centenary of the birth of designer Robin Day

Installed for the London Design Festival (19-27 September), the forest reflects Day’s early life growing up nears the woodlands of High Wycombe.

The installation forms part of an exhibition of the 20th century furniture designer’s work curated by Jane Withers.

The exhibition will include some of Day’s most famous furniture designs alongside handmade objects, drawings, and writings.

Day’s career spanned almost seven decades and he is responsible for a huge body of work, including the auditorium seating at the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican art centre, seating on London Underground platforms, and the 1963 polypropylene chair.

Robin Day Works in Wood runs outside the V&A’s Britain 1500 – 1900 Galleries from 19 September
