The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation is a design education Charity set up in 2012 by Paula Day, daughter of Robin and Lucienne, to care for and promote knowledge of her parents’ design legacies, and to provide resources for the study of design. The Foundation is run by a board of Trustees, with Sir Christopher Frayling and Fiona MacCarthy OBE as Patrons.
Robin and Lucienne Day hold a unique place in 20th century design history. For seven decades they pursued independent careers alongside each other, both making major contributions to Britain’s design heritage. Robin Day’s handsome and innovative seating still improves the quality of people’s lives in homes, schools, theatres and other public spaces all over the world. Lucienne Day was a virtuoso pattern designer and colourist whose designs for textiles, tea towels, wallpaper, carpets and china brought affordable art into post-war homes.
Caro Communications was hired in the spring of 2015 to promote the Foundation’s official launch, followed by the various celebrations of Robin Day’s legacy throughout his centenary year. In 2017 we are working with the Foundation once more to promote the numerous exhibitions, events and collaborations taking place to mark the centenary of Lucienne Day’s birth.
