Furniture designer Robin Day’s remarkable career spanned 60 years and included the 1963 Polypropylene chair, as well as the seating in the Barbican concert hall.

For Day’s centenary – he died in 2010 – an exhibit will form part of the London Design Festival at the V&A from 19 September, with an installation by Turner Prize nominees Assemble. There will also be installations at the Royal Festival Hall and the Design Museum, which has acquired the contents of his studios. The 100th birthday is also being marked by twentytwentyone, which has a showroom in River Street, with new editions of Day’s Reclining Chair by 10 designers and the Robin Day 100 Designs poster.
