We're featuring the Zanotta Marcuso table by Marco Zanuso for two reasons. Firstly, because it was such an influential design and secondly, because you might well find a version on your local junk shop.
Dating back to 1969 and still available in different shapes and sizes (small and large, as well as round, square or rectangular), the Marcuso is generally a glass-plated table, where 15mm plate glass rests on removable legs in 18/8 stainless steel – the legs screwing into stainless steel discs fixed to the glass.
Prices vary, but start from around £1,600. But don't despair – it's a much-copied design from the 70s and something similar comes along in junk shops, house clearance places and of course eBay quite often. Grab one of those (we once had a huge dining table version) and pass it off as the original. Trust us, no one will know the difference.
