Narin Folding Chair
Designed by David Irwin.
This award-winning piece of furniture was inspired by the constantly adapting nature of modern workshops.
“I set out to design a folding chair that didn’t compromise on aesthetics or comfort for it to fold,” Irwin explains, “I took inspiration from the constantly adapting nature of workshops, from the function and forms of trestles, folding A-frames and other temporary support structures.”
This contemporary folding chair is lightweight, easy to collapse and move around and can be stored in condensed stacks which occupy minimal space, or hung on the wall with a hook.
Winner of the Design Guild Mark Award and Wood Award for Best Production Made project in 2017, the Narin Folding Chair is an ideal seating option for dining or home office spaces.
Matching seat pad sold separately.
Crafted with a solid wood frame, this smart and robust design features a smooth sweeping transition from the turned legs into the formed backrest, which also doubles as the mount for the pivot from where the back leg rotates. The seat and back are formed from layered birch ply with a clear lacquer oak veneer and stainless steel fixings. The fixings are contained on the underside of the chair slide along the grooves within the back legs to create a graceful silhouette with clean flowing lines, which looks as good folded away for storage as it does when open and in use.

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.
