Lucienne Day

Lucienne Day was married to Robin Day and together they helped to transform British design after the second World War, though they used different techniques. Lucienne designed patterns for textiles for things like furnishings, ceramics and interior design while her husband focused on designing modern furniture.

Lucienne Day was a very versatile and influential designer, she was brought up to appreciate the beauty of interior design and she also had a love for plants and nature, something which is clearly visible in her work. She has explored with a range of different working methods and materials such as collage, mono-printing and ceramics.

I researched Lucienne for my summer project and I'm also looking at her for a exercise we have in critical studies. I really like the textures and scribbly patterns that Lucienne creates in her pieces, I shall have to look at her work for references for the Mulberry brief, where we have to design a pattern for a carpet and wall tiles.
