Description

Since winning first prize in the Storage Section of the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design (organised by MoMA in 1948), Day has built a legacy of innovation and forward focused design.

With its beech frame and gently moulded plywood seat, the Hillestak was Robin Day's first low-cost production design for Hille. Conceived when government-imposed Utility restrictions were still in place, this economical and practical chair remained in production from 1951 until 1967.
