Description

Hilleplan chest of drawers by Robin Day for Hille, 1952.

The Hilleplan range was designed in 1952 and based around an 18inch module. It was Robin Day’s first storage system that reached production following his award-winning design for MOMA.

The Hilleplan range of units were designed to offer users flexibility and to work singularly, or as part of a system. It was quite different to anything else in the market at the time. The recessed handles provide a flat and minimal appearance to the simple design. However, the use of contrasting elm and Nigerian cherry adds a dynamic and affluent feel. The range extended to cabinets, bookcases and a drop-front desk.

Robin Day went to design several other storage systems that anticipated the demand for flexible needs in both domestic and commercial interiors.
