Lucienne Day: Living Design tells the story of Lucienne’s design career, unfolding in a sequence of images and textiles drawn from the archives of The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation. Photographs show the lead up to her career breakthrough at the Festival of Britain 1951, with her pioneering ‘contemporary’ design Calyx. They also evidence Lucienne’s prolific output of patterns for furnishing and dress fabrics, table linen, carpets, wallpapers and ceramics. The exhibition includes current and recent textile productions of Lucienne’s design, demonstrating the continuing vitality of Lucienne’s design legacy.
