Lucienne Day: Living Design Exhibitions

lucienne_day_living_design


This exhibition celebrates the life and work of one of the most influential British designers of the post-war generation, Lucienne Day.

Photographs show the lead up to her career breakthrough at the Festival of Britain 1951, with her pioneering ‘contemporary’ design Calyx. They also evidence Lucienne’s prolific output of patterns for furnishing and dress fabrics, table linen, carpets, wallpapers and ceramics. The exhibition includes current and recent textile productions of Lucienne’s design, demonstrating the continuing vitality of Lucienne’s design legacy.

Curated by Professor Emma Hunt and Dr Paula Day
