Forum | Armchair | Various Finishes and Fabrics


The Forum by Robin Day is a mid-century masterpiece. Introduced in 1964, both the armchair and sofa feature a hardwood frame with a sophisticated finger joint detail, complemented by outside-mounted chrome plated legs. The exposed construction is a key aspect of the design, allowing for the stunning form to be appreciated.

Through a close partnership with the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation, Case has revived this iconic design after almost 60 years since its initial release. They have carefully studied original design drawings and production samples to create a new production that maintains the integrity of Robin Day's timeless design. By paying close attention to details such as the exact seat angle, full width timber plank casing, and use of modern materials like Dacron-wrapped foam cushions, Case has ensured the ultimate comfort and durability of the product. Additionally, they have updated the materials used, replacing tropical hardwood veneers with solid walnut or oak, and reinforcing the frame with metal for added strength and longevity.

Paula Day; Founder, Trustee & Chair, The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation comments:

“I grew up with my father Robin Day’s Forum. He furnished our living room at Cheyne Walk with two Forum sofas when they first launched in the 1960s, and chose to continue using them for nearly half a century. With this bold design, he challenged the convention of hiding a sofa’s timber frame under the upholstery, instead placing it on the outside to create the Forum’s handsome and unmistakable signature feature.

So it’s a real pleasure to see the original Forum returning in Case’s authentic reissue. Case has worked with dedication to achieve a high-quality new production which is true to the original dimensions and respectful of the original aesthetic.”

Exclusive to Case, the Forum is available as a sofa and armchair in both walnut and oak, with a black leather and mocha brown leather option, plus a fabric option of either chalk, moss or slate bouclé for a textured seat.
