Description

A Set of 4 stacking Hillestak chairs designed by Robin Day for Hille in the 1950’s. The chairs are made from steam bent ply wood with a walnut veneer on a beech frame and we’ve paired them with a super walnut dining table.

Originally conceived as low-cost furniture, the range was inspired by the plywood work of Alvar Aalto and Charles and Ray Eames and proved to be one of Hille’s early successes.

The Hille furniture company was started in the East End of London in 1906 by Salamon Hille. Hille’s most famous designer was, of course, Robin Day. From the very outset Day was given carte blanche to design whatever he wanted and to have prototypes built. Day is most famously remembered for his best selling product, the Polypropylene chair, the first of which was the polyside chair in 1963.

The table is in super condition as we’ve had it refinished by a professional furniture restorer. The chairs are great too but, as you’d expect, show some signs of use, including a small chip to one of the seat backs (see photo). The chairs are solid and structurally sound but have all the patina and little marks that you’d expect. These do not detract at all though from the super visual impact and practicality of this fantastic dining set.
