Combining 70 pieces of furniture, machinery, photographs, original archive material, and objects including toys and musical instruments, the show also promises to look to the future of furniture designing and making.
There are pieces by LCF alumni, students, lecturers, designers and craftspersons who attended the courses from 1964 to 1992.
Alumni include design luminaries such as Frederick Parker, who founded the company that later became Parker Knoll; Lucian Ercolani, the founder of Ercol; and, more recently Terence Woodgate, Michael Marriot and Roberto Feo.
There will be a chance to see their work up close and take in the Frederick Parker Collection, which is on long-term loan to The Cass.
On Thursday 27 November The Cass will be hosting a one-day symposium to celebrate the opening of the exhibition where speakers will include the former principal of the LCF Peter Metcalf and chairman of the Frederick Parker Collection Cliff Rust.
LCF Fifty Years On will run from 27 November 2014 – 14 January 2015 at The Cass, 42-47 Commercial Road, London E1.
