Ok, we’ll admit right now that this isn’t a retail piece – but this Kartell space age Colombo Phone Table could be yours with a little work and money.

It’s actually the work of one of our regular readers (Andrew), who has fitted the base of a Colombo phone into the lid of a Kartell modular unit (the lip on the phone’s base allowing it to be recessed), adding the classic Guzzini Sorella lamp (from 1972) to complete this space age telephone table.

If you’re working towards that Space 1999 look (and don’t mind getting your hands dirty with a bit of DIY), it’s well worth trying yourself. More close-up images over the page.
