eBay watch: 1960s ‘Bond villain’ space age armchair

Right, here's a challenge to our regular 'design' readers – can you name this armchair design? It's listed as a 1960s Bond Chair, which I'm guessing is because of its similarity to the kind of chair Bond villains kicked back in 'back in the day'. I'm happy to be corrected though.

For your money, you get a fibreglass frame, a tulip base that swivels 360 degrees and a padding black leatherette inner.  That's the good part.

On the downside, it has not been re-upholstered, so there's some 'cracking' with age. Otherwise, it's described as being in 'excellent' condition. Bidding stands at (and indeed opens at) £250. More images on the listing.
