Lucienne Day: Living Design

Lucienne Day: Living Design celebrates the life and work of one of the most influential designers of the post-war generation, Lucienne Day (1917 – 2010).

Lucienne Day was one of Britain’s most pioneering textile designers, bringing contemporary colour to an otherwise drab post-war Britain. One of her most famous designs, Calyx, was designed for the Homes and Gardens Pavilion at the Festival of Britain in 1951 and launched her design career. From that moment on, Lucienne designed fabrics, wallpapers, ceramics and rugs on a commercial basis until later in her life when she focused more on one-off designs for her silk mosaics.
