The exhibition features selections of innovative furniture designs by Robin Day and vibrant patterned textiles by Lucienne Day, including her well-known Calyx and Causeway Brown designs.
MoDA holds a number of wallpapers and textiles by Lucienne Day in its collections, including this textile design titled Integration, from 1971. This abstract design is based around a series of interlocking rectangular blocks placed at rightangles with one another to create a herringbone-like pattern. The blocks are outlined in cream on a brown ground, with pink and mustard rectangular outlines appearing at regular intervals. The design was screen printed on cotton for Heal Fabrics, who produced printed furnishing fabrics for the London-based retailer Heal's. Heal's were one of Lucienne Day's key clients from the late 1940s through to the mid-1970s.
