The late Lucienne Day was a designer – which is a bit like saying Noma serves a bit of food. Her brightly coloured, abstract-patterned textiles came to attention at the 1951 Festival of Britain, and she went on to pioneer contemporary design (including through consultancy work at John Lewis) with her husband Robin. Andrew Casey, a design historian, tells the story of her rise to international prominence through the 1950s and '60s.
