Terence Conran'Mosquito' dining table / large desk
Inspired by the British'Mosquito' fighter-bomber of WW2, lightweight construction of aluminium skin over plywood frame (the fastest aircraft of the war till near the end when Germany succeeded in producing the first jet, the ME262). Hitler complimented the Mosquito by decreeing that any pilot managing to shoot one down was to be awarded 2 kills. Circa 1990, polished aluminium, plywood, sycamore veneer. 1850 L x 850 W.
8-seater dining or spacious statement desk. The table top veneer needs some remedial work and repolishing. The aluminium piers are undented, no deep scratches, just need gently shining up. This is an important design in Conran's portfolio, now closed. Renovated, it will remain a very evocative and desirable statement piece that will only increase in value.
