DESCRIPTION
An amazing and extremely rare wall unit.

This was one of Robin Days first designs for Hille dating 1949. This range was made mainly for US export with not many staying in the UK probably due to being a little ahead of its time for home consumption. It is still simply stunning today and would have looked out of this world 65 years ago.

The unit shows, i feel some italian influence with the almost Ico Parisi style floating ebonized legs which rise up and flow around the two sections. Cabinets below offer ample storage with once again another floating section between the top and bottom sections. This gives a light and elegant feel to the unit while its actually quite large it does not feel intimidating. The contrasting woods are great and work perfectly, from the mansonia doors and cherry frame with ash for the case!

Good to very good original condition with no visible repairs or restoration. There are a couple of small chips to the glass doors but these do not detract

A stunning collectors piece
