Avian AV1 armchair designed by Robin Day.

Robin Day's Avian seating range was launched by twentytwentyone in 2000. The range consists of an armchair, two-seat and three-seat sizes of sofa. The use of formed plywood to define structure and offer support continues the typography first conceived in the celebrated designs for the Royal Festival Hall in 1951.

The structure of design is clearly revealed with fixings exposed and the upholstery unit raised on stainless steel legs. The design for Avian incorporates the option of an upholstered liner for the inside face of armrests.

The Avian family reflects Robin Days perceptive ability to create understated and functional furniture.

Legs in stainless steel and armrests of formed plywood with oak veneer. Seat and back upholstered in a range of fabrics or leather. Available with or without matching upholstered armrests.
