Titled Robin Day Works in Wood, the installation will be a “forest” of timber columns as a nod to Day’s childhood growing up near the woodlands of High Wycombe and his explorations in moulded plywood later in life. Best known for his injection-moulded Polypropylene chair, the piece will sit as part of an exhibition about the 20th Century designer’s almost 70-year career.
Jane Withers, curator of the exhibition says: “[the piece] highlights how [Day] turned wood into an expressive modern material but also his profound attachment to nature as a source of inspiration as well as raw material.”
