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
A sustainable future and our place in it
The next decade poses several monumental challenges for mankind, from maintaining a global workforce in the face of increasing automation, feeding a population that is set to rise to near 10 billion by 2050, to maintaining liberal democracy in the face of rising populism.
But far and away the biggest challenge we face is in our relationship to and with the natural world. A relationship which for the last few centuries has been allowed to become dislocated to a point where we believe the human population and the rest of the living world to be two distinct things. This of course is absurd and we are now waking up to a reality where extreme weather and global warming and a whole raft of other dangers are reminding us that only at our own peril do we forget our deep connection to the natural world.
In the face of this huge predicament lies a small but vital question, “what can I do?”. Or as is the case here at Loft what can we do? And it is the same question being asked by people and businesses all over the world. Thus we are devoting this corner of the website to telling you about what we are doing in response and what other pioneers in the world of design are attempting that we find encouraging.Read more
