The Poloplaey chair represents a collaboration which began over a year ago between Loft and Plaey Studio.
Loft’s Robin Day designed Polo seats are produced using the original 1970’s injection moulding tool. When the seats are manufactured, as with most mass produced products, there are inevitably some which have minor superficial imperfections meaning they are structurally sound but deemed unsuitable for full price sale.
Rather than simply recycling these seats we wanted to achieve their intended potential whilst also creating something with form, function and environmental responsibility at its heart.More info
Loft manufacture and distribute the Robin Day Collection including the Robin Day Club Chair and Club range, the polypropylene Polo chair, the Leo range, the Delphi range and the Q stak chair.
All of the Robin Day Collection are licensed iconic 20th Century Great British Designs. These designs span almost 60 years of Robin Day’s design career: Q Stak was designed in 1952, Robin Day Club Chair 1962, Leo 1965, Delphi range 1968, and Polo Chair 1973. Loft is an environmentally sensitive company and we make the Polo and the Robin Day Club Chair in Eco friendly versions.View collection
Over the years Loft has supplied products from its Robin Day Collection on a number of varied projects, some of the more contract led projects have highlighted a gap within our offering, particularly when supplying a more comprehensive furniture specification.
We have carefully selected the additional products which are available through our Out Of Office range, not only for the way that they compliment and are complimented by our Robin Day Collection, but also on the basis of the high quality production and service levels of our chosen partners.
Whether you are looking to establish a small, individual office space, install work stations and break out seating for 5’000 people, or furnish areas of the hospitality sector, Loft Furniture can satisfy all of your requirements through our collections. The end result will be high quality, contemporary and visually striking.View collection
We are pleased to announce that Loft have embarked on a project to support local creatives. We have enlisted the talents of six artists and makers in the Yorkshire area to create ‘Artist Editions’ of our new Poloplaey chair to raise funds for the creative arts charity MAP.
Map charity is an organisation which does great work locally with young people who are unable to access the mainstream school system and are in need of support. They are also the custodians of Hope Foundry, a Grade II-listed building with a rich heritage dating back to 1812 in need of refurbishment. They have some exciting plans to transform it into a thriving place for education, creativity and enterprise.
If you would like to donate and put your name in the hat to win a cool one-off chair then please follow this link to view a Just Giving page that we have set up: Loft Furniture is fundraising for MAP Charity (justgiving.com)
For every £5 donated (multiple entries welcome) you will be entered into a draw to win one of the 6 Poloplaey Artists Edition chairs.
