Calyx by Lucienne Day
This print set design off in a new direction. English designer Day's post-war floral abstraction came to define mid-century modernism.
Lucienne Conradi Day (1917-2010)
with husband Robin Day
Lesley Jackson in Twentieth Century Pattern Design describes Day's influences:
"...The cartoons of Saul Steinberg, the paintings of Miro and Klee, Alexander Calder's mobiles and the sculptures of Naum Gabo."
Robin Day was an equally influential furniture designer.
His Polypropylene Chair from 1963 has been quite a success.
