This set of three Polyprop chairs was designed by Robin Day from 1964. They were originally produced in the London Hille manufactory. It is not a subsequent production under a license that was carried out in other countries. This project was a breakthrough in the concept of functional design, it became a new dimension of classic design and the best-selling chair in the world. The body of the chair, as the name suggests, was made by spray molding using polypropylene, a lightweight thermoplastic with high impact resistance. The chrome frame provides additional lightness.
Robin Day, two-time winner of the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA), was impressed by the Scandinavian idea of design, where functionality goes hand in hand with aesthetics and quality of workmanship. It was part of his philosophy: the designer should influence all the details of everyday life. An interesting fact is that the Polyprop chair is such a distinctive model that in 2009 it was selected as one of eight designs in the British Design Classics badge series. And in 1965, this project was awarded by the Industrial Design Council (now the Design Council).
Our chairs are fully original, signed with a smelted seal on the underside. Set is in very good vintage condition.
