A cool piece of space age design has been reissued for the modern era – the Rodolfo Bonetto Melaina easy chair.

Originally designed by Rodolfo Bonetto for Driade in 1970, it's a chair that literally screams the era – a fairly small, all-in-one fibreglass armchair in an amaranth colour that's perfect for pretending you're in Space 1999 or doing something more mundane like watching TV or reading a book. Just don't take it outside – this is one fibreglass chair that doesn't like the elements.

Available once more, the Melaina is yours for £832.
