Frank Guille Furniture Designer

In the early 1940's, Frank Guille trained under both Robin Day and John Cole at the Beckenham School of Art. After serving with the Royal Navy, he studied furniture design at the Royal College of Art under Gordon Russell. In 1953, following two year as assistant to the Modernist architect Wells Coates, Guille set up his own design practice. Among such clients as Heal and Sons, one commission led Guille to his strongest body of work - Kandya Ltd asked Guille to restyle a stacking chair; the project led to his placement as their consultant designer, a position he held until 1976
