‘Forum’ collection by Robin Day is rethought by Case Furniture
Case Furniture has worked with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation to recreate iconic furniture
Midcentury design codes are given a refresh by Case Furniture, which has worked closely with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation to recreate a sofa and an armchair that originally appeared in 1964.
The ‘Forum’ seating collection, designed by Robin Day, epitomised 1960s design with its intricate solid hardwood frame. Details, including its elegant finger joint detail and chrome-plated legs positioned outside of the frame, nod to Day’s wish to make the construction a part of the design in a rethinking of beauty and function.
Now, to mark the collection’s 60th anniversary, Case Furniture has paid tribute to these original pieces with a meticulous reworking. The new ‘Forum’ collection, featuring a sofa and an armchair, comes in both walnut and black leather, and oak and brown leather, with seats in either cream, moss or petrol bouclé fabrics. The collection will be unveiled at Clerkenwell Design Week (23 - 25 May 2023).
It is the latest project from Case Furniture, established in 2006 by designer, manufacturer and retailer Paul Newman with the aim of making affordable and design-led products. Collaborations with designers including Matthew Hilton and Terence Woodgate shift the emphasis to modern manufacturing techniques and good quality materials to create long-lasting and accessible furniture.
