Lucienne Day: Living Design tells the story of Day’s design career, and unfolds in a sequence of photographs drawn from the archives of the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation.

The images introduce Day’s work and show the lead up to her career breakthrough at the Festival of Britain 1951 with the showcasing of her pioneering ‘contemporary’ design Calyx. Further images evidence Day’s prolific output of designs for interiors in her patterns for furnishing and dress fabrics, table linen, carpets, wallpapers and ceramics. The exhibition includes current and recent productions of Day’s designs, demonstrating the continuing vitality of her design legacy.

A special panel discussion will take place at Manchester School of Art on Wednesday 18th October.
