Long title, but the 1960s Robin Day for Hille space age storage coffee table is exactly what this is.

It's specifically a 1965 deign part of a futuristic range the iconic designer did for Hllle, which also featured this rather fetching 4-400 armchair, which also pops up on eBay in various colours occasionally.

But let's focus on the table, which is a classic bit of space age design, with a removable circular centre, which is a great place to store essential bits and pieces (or a pile of snacks for TV viewing).

As for condition, it has 'no cracks' but there is a ring, where there is an indentation, and a scuff as shown (see images on listing). There is also some fading, as you would expect of plastic from this era.

Still well priced at £65 though.
