eBay watch: 1960s Grillo telephone by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper


Interesting design, although if you opt to bid for this 1960s Grillo telephone by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper, you'll need to be in the right country to use it or get someone to adapt it for you.

Might be worth doing though, as this is a really stylish item. Designed by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper back in 1966, it's incredibly reminiscent of the era, especially in that orange colour. Clamshell design, dial inside – it's going to make your calls, but it's not going to get you through call centre menus.

It's working and described as being in 'excellent condition' with 'no cracks, no chips, no stains or discolouration' and currently at a price of £30.98.

Martingala chair by Marco Zanuso

Dating from 1954, Marco Zanuso's Martingala chair is still looking pretty stylish today.

The chair was originally designed for the X Trienalle and is recognisable for the continuous curve of the arms into the back. That is paired with those splayed metal legs and ball feet, giving it a noticeable 50s feel. Its manufacturer, Arflex, also claim it is the first armchair with removable covers, giving it an extra praticality too.

Prices start at £2,206 and vary depending on your choice of upholstery.
