Form Group by Robin Day for Hille, 1960.

The Form Group carried through theories on flexibility and modular design that Robin Day had forged with his storage systems in the previous decade.

Using square-section tubular steel frames as a platform, a range of seat units, tables or storage units could be inserted to meet the requirements of the user. The system allowed for a wide range of configurations and offered customers great flexibility. The seat units were latex foam with the seat supported by exposed Pirelli webbing. The loose cushions could be mixed colours to create a dynamic aesthetic. The opportunity to adopt corner arrangements was a highly modern way of designing rooms and spaces.

The design was visually lightweight and the rectilinear form expressed international modernism.

The Form Group was recognised with a Council of Industrial Design Award in 1961.

The arrangement offered includes the following components;
1x 215x69cm platform
2x 140x79 platforms
Bar or blanket box in mahogany veneer
2x mahogany veneered coffee table
2x seat units, one with upholstered armrest
2x seat units without backs

The cushions have been remade with new foam and upholstery in Bute Tweed.
