Early 1960’s Uniflex Q Range dressing table by Gunther Hoffstead
This lovely design with it’s cut out handles looks so modern and yet it was designed nearly 60 years ago . Cherry veneer was not a finish that was used much on British Mid-Century furniture , but it’s much more interesting than light oak which was used by a number of makers in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s before teak became the finish of choice for contemporary companies .
Designed as a dressing table , but it could easily be used as a shallow desk by simply removing the mirrors .
It’s in good vintage condition with some minor signs of wear like small scratches , but there is nothing obvious unless you look very closely .
Gunther Hoffstead had a successful design studio in Piccadily in London in the 1960’s and 1970’s . He designed the Uniflex factory as well as his own home in the early 1960’s and in the 1970’s worked for Schreiber designing all their showroom layouts . He was also a sought after product designer .
