Robin Day Reclining Chair for Hille

An original 1950s Reclining Chair by British designer Robin Day for Hille, United Kingdom 1952. Robin Day considered this chair to be one of his most successful designs. A classic and modernist armchair with minimalist frame and a slim angular upholstered seat, floating teak wooden armrests. The distinctive wide armrests providing a platform for books, paperwork or drinks. The minimalist steel legs support a beautifully angled and very comfortable seat that is reupholstered with a soft wool (Kvadrat Tonus) fabric in blue. Both aesthetically and practically, this chair remains one of the finest achievements of British Mid-Century design. In very good condition.
