1 product

Founded in 1906 in London's East End by Russian immigrant Salamon Hille, the company began by restoring and reproducing eighteenth-century furniture. Under Ray Hille's leadership from 1932, it expanded internationally despite post-war and 1950s financial challenges. In 1949, Leslie Julius, Ray's son-in-law, initiated a collaboration with designer Robin Day, who defined Hille's product line and visual identity for two decades. Day's Polypropylene chair, launched in 1961, achieved global success with over 14 million units sold to date. Hille relocated to new offices designed by architect Ernö Goldfinger in 1961. Following its sale in 1983, the company maintained its focus on affordable quality and collaboration with innovative designers like Robin Day, ensuring the legacy of enduring design classics.
