The name is something of a mouthful, but the Chichibio telephone stand by Gino Levi Montalcini is pure modernist simplicity.

It’s a functional item, every bit as useful today as it was back in 1932 – the year of its introduction. Except this stand has those sleek modernist lines and subtle curves, made from chrome-plated tubular steel, with layered plastic shelves for your phone book and phone in black or white.

The downside? Well, it’s got to be the whopping price. The Chichibio will set you back £823 – but let’s be honest, this is a design classic.
