Ever heard of David Mellor? Well, if the name isn't familiar, his work certainly is – you probably pass his 1966 National Traffic Light design every day of your life (if you live in the UK) and you've probably used items like his bus shelters, public seating and litter bins at some time in your life. While those items aren't celebrated by the classic designs of David Mellor artwork, some of his more stylish works for the home are.

The three prints available from Ink Posters feature Mellor's classic 1972 Abacus 700 armchair (pictured above), the Abacus Embassy Teapot (designed for the British Embassy in 1963) and the Minimal Cutlery, a more comtemporary, but equally retro design.

All the two-colour screenprints are limited to 1,000 and are incredibly minimalist, featuring just the image of the design and some details of it in the lower section. Each one retails for £55.
