West Street Chair

The West Street Chair is a pared-down design based on a simple cube shape. The result of a challenge that designer Robin Day took on to create a chair with the simplest form, the West Street chair started life as a personal project. Named after the home Robin and Lucienne Day moved to in 1999, the chair was taken on by Case as a simple desk or occasional chair.

"There's this very vulnerable planet of ours with finite resources. Architects and designers have, I think, a fair responsibility for conserving energy and materials, and making things durable." Robin Day

Robin and Lucienne modelled the interior of 21 West Street, just opposite Chichester cathedral, on a smaller version of their Chelsea home at Cheyne Walk. Robin built a small studio in the courtyard garden, where he finished the design of the West Street chair.

The solid wood frame has two upholstered leather pads that act as the seat and the back with the back pad angled slightly for extra comfort.

Care notes for the West Street chair

  • Use a dampened, soft, non-abrasive, lint-free colourless cloth to wipe the entire surface of your wood, moving in the direction of the grain.
  • Dry the wood using a second non-abrasive cloth. Remember to wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  • You do not need to polish the wood as part of your regular maintenance, as we finish our products with a matte, non-yellowing clear polyurethane lacquer for its natural appearance and durability.
  • Never use wax-based polish or ammonia-based cleaning products on your wood.

Robin Day

Born in 1915 in Buckinghamshire, Day won a scholarship to his local art school in the early 1930’s and worked for a brief period in a local furniture factory before going to the Royal College of Art. Although best known as a furniture designer, Day has worked in many fields including graphics, exhibition, interior design, radio and television receivers, carpet and vinyl design, passenger aircraft interior design – notably for the Super VC10.

In partnership with Clive Latimer, he won the first prize in the New York Museum of Modern Art International Competition for the design of low cost furniture. In 1950 Day began work for Hille, helping to take the company to new heights as its design consultant. In 1951 Day designed the Festival of Britain Homes and Garden display and the Royal Festival Hall auditorium seating, which is still in place, a testament to the quality of the design.

Over the last 50 years Day designed furniture for many important buildings in the UK and abroad, notably for concert halls and theatres, airports, stations and sports stadiums. He pioneered development of injection moulding plastic one-piece chairs of which tens of millions have been sold worldwide. In 1983 he was awarded his OBE and was appointed a senior fellow at the Royal College of Art an Honorary fellow of the RIBA.
