675 chair

Case

Designed by Robin Day. A design that has truly stood the test of time, the 675 chair is one of the most recognised of the Twentieth Century. Originally created in 1952, the chair’s most prominent feature is its curved walnut-veneered plywood back. Pioneering at the time, Robin Day overcame the difficulty of forming a single moulded plywood chair with armrests, by creating a bent shape using a singular curve rather than the obvious double curve.

Available with black or chrome frame, oak or walnut armrest. Upholstered in piped black leather.

675 Chair, 1953

Whereas 1930s furniture had been heavy and ponderous, Day’s post-war designs were light on their feet and economical in their use of materials. A minimalist frame was adopted for the 675 Chair, a dining chair with a slender floating moulded plywood seat back.

In September 2014 Case Furniture launched an authentic new production of Robin Days’ classic 675 Chair (1952). An example of the original production was sourced as the template for development work carried out in consultation with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation. It was awarded a Design Guild Mark by the Furniture Makers' Company in March 2015.

Robin and Lucienne Day

Together, Robin and Lucienne Day transformed British design after World War II with striking furniture and textiles that signaled a new era of modernist sensibilities for everyday living. Robin’s revolutionary furniture designs introduced materials such as plastic, steel and plywood to homes, offices and schools. His stacking polypropylene chair endures as an icon and now graces a Royal Mail postage stamp. Lucienne’s abstract textile designs brought accessible elegance into the homes of postwar British consumers.

The Days’ fresh design approaches, including their contributions to the Royal Festival Hall in 1951, helped fuel the artistic and commercial awakening that led Britain out of the devastation of World War II.
