Case Robin Day 675 Chair
A design that has truly stood the test of time, this 675 chair is the authentic licensed production of the original 1952 design, endorsed by the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation. The chair's most prominent feature is its curved walnut or oak veneered plywood back. Pioneering at the time, Robin Day overcame the difficulty of forming a single moulded plywood chair with armrests by creating a bent shape using a singular curve rather than a double curve. In close collaboration with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation, Case has revised the dimensions of the chair, making the 2014 version slightly smaller and more compact - as it was originally designed to be. Finished with a walnut or oak veneered ply back, powder-coated steel frame and black leather upholstered seat pad - in the words of Robin Day: ‘metal for strength and lightness ... wood for touch and appearance.' The 675 is comfortable for long periods of use thanks to the large seat pad, and is equally at home in your office and dining space.
