Hillestak chair, Robin Day, 1951

With its beech frame and gently moulded plywood seat, the Hillestak was Robin’s first low-cost production design for Hille. Conceived when government-imposed Utility restrictions were still in place, this economical and practical chair remained in production until 1967.
