Robin Day Reclining chair for Hille, UK 1952

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 modernist armchair with minimalist frame and a slim seat, floating teak armrests. The distinctive wide armrests provide a platform for books, paperwork or drinks. The minimalist metal legs support a beautifully angled and comfortable seat that is reupholstered with an ivory bouclé wool.
Both aesthetically and practically, this chair remains one of the finest achievements of British Mid-Century design.
In very good condition.
