Robin Day Centenary ChairContemporary designers, including Jasper Morrison, Ilse Crawford, and Barber Osgerby, are paying homage to Robin Day—the great English modern furniture designer who would have turned 100 this year—with a show featuring customized versions of one of his most famous creations, the handsome Reclining Chair.

Robin Day Centenary Design Edit has been organized by London furniture retailer Twentytwentyone, the exclusive manufacturer of Day’s 1952 masterwork, in honor of Day’s centenary birth year, and features bespoke coverings for the chair by a select group 10 UK designers.

Day considered Reclining Chair to be one of his best designs, describing it as “an early design showing a clearly articulated structure. The slim steel rod frame cradles a shaped upholstered unit and timber arms which can also serve as shelves for glasses, etc.” Part of a city-wide tribute to the designer, which includes an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Robin Day Centenary Design Edit will be on view at the Twentytwentyone showroom from July 1-7.
