A fabulous design by Robin Day for Hille as part of the ‘Hilleplan’ modular range designed by Day in 1952. Fully restored in a striking combination of solid beech frame and laminated timber top that is finished with a richly figured and coloured Nigerian cherry. This example is stamped to the underside with an impressed Utility Furniture stamp (CC41) making this example an exceptionally rare first year of production piece (the Utility Furniture Scheme was abolished on January 21st 1953 after its introduction in 1941). A wonderfully executed design with a simple swivel top the table can either be used as a console / desk or dining table that will seat 4-6 in comfort due to the generous overhanging table top. In wonderful restored condition and given a soft-sheen, highly durable, UV resistant and maintenance free lacquer finish (as per original). Just the odd historic ding, light mark, veneer nibble and small area of veneer repair that most people won’t even see but mentioned for 100% accuracy (see close up pics).
70cm length (extends to 137cm) x 91.5cm depth x 73cm height.
