Robin Day

Robin Day, who has died aged 95, was Britain's most famous 20th-century furniture designer. His best known design is his ubiquitous grey or tangerine-coloured polypropylene chairs.Robin won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art in London. The so-called design courses in the late 1930s were too unfocused to be useful to someone already obsessed with functional design. But the RCA gave him the freedom to explore the European and American avant garde and develop his keen interest in architecture.
