The Robin Day Collection
Iconic 20th Century Great British Designs Spanning almost 60 years of Robin Day's design career
POLO / 1972
Not many chairs can boast the accolades of being both one of The Royal Mail’s Design Classics of the 20th Century and The Guardian’s Ten Best Product Designs; but Robin Day’s polypropylene Polo chair can.
The original Polo was designed in 1972 as a general purpose chair whose polypropylene seat and steel base could work both indoors and outdoors and could be easily stackedVIEW
CLUB / 1962
Few design pieces combine the style and comfort of the Robin Day Club Chair range. In 1962, Robin Day designed the Club as a modern take on the classic Chesterfield and it became Britain’s original ‘cube sofa’. The Club was designed to fit in both domestic and commercial environments and is specifically designed so that it can fit in tight spaces.
The Club has always been a favourite with architects as it perfectly mixes simple design, elegant appearance, small size and effective function. Loft reissued the Club range with Robin Day in 2001. Club is available in various fabric and leather finishes including Loft’s option for Customer’s Own Material.
All Robin’s furniture has been designed to be durable and hard wearing, and the Club is no exception. The upholstered seats and expert stitching provide long lasting durability in terms of quality of finish and timeless design.VIEW
LEO / 1965
In Robin Day’s classic Leo range you will find armchairs, settees and ottomans that look just as stylish at home as they do in the office. Originally designed in 1965, the Leo collection still stands the test of time and looks as fashionable and contemporary today as it did then. We would even argue that the design has improved with age. The Leo won the ultimate seal of style approval when it was featured in early James Bond films, affirming the Leo’s iconic status.
The versatility of the pieces means they lend themselves to many environments, from domestic to commercial. The reclining angle of the chair adds to its functionality and comfort, but sacrifices none of its style. The Leo chair is the ultimate marriage of style and substance with immaculate Robin Day design and an optional swivel pedestal for added flexibility.VIEW
DELPHI / 1968
The Delphi range was designed by Robin Day in 1968 with the board room and office environment in mind. The Delphi’s meeting chair, table and Credenza complement commercial spaces and add a touch of style to the workplace. The distinctive chromed steel T bar structure of the Delphi range offers stylish support to the pieces.
The Delphi range was produced by Robin Day with the intention of it being a more executive product in comparison to the designer’s typical lower cost furniture. The opulent mirror veneered Santos and Teak wood finishes epitomise his aim to create a stylish yet practical option for design conscious corporate environments. Although initially designed for commercial spaces, like all Robin Day pieces, the classic and timeless Delphi range also looks great in domestic environments.VIEW
From a free standing beam to bespoke fixings Loft, in partnership with its team of designers, can cater for any public seating requirements with Polo’s polypropylene or cast aluminium seat shell.VIEW
