Robin Day (1915-2010), British designer trained in furniture making at a technical high school and a graduate of the Royal College of Art, helped Pioneer a midcentury British style. His graphics and his furniture adhered to the modernist philosophy that well designed pieces, mass produced and sold at affordable prices, would improve the quality of life and bolster the optimism of a nation recovering from WWII. Working in close collaboration with his wife Lucienne, an award winning textile designer, Day gave England an international reputation as, if not one of the major centres of design, at least an environment in which good design was born and appreciated.
