Robin and Lucienne Day
The ninety-minute film premieres on May 15, 2010 at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, DC. A question and answer session with Director Murray Grigor and Cinematographer Hamid Shams will follow the screening.
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.
