Which collectible design object would you like Father Christmas to bring you?
I would like the Carlo Mollino dining set that was recently auctioned at Christie’s.

Why this object?
Two reasons: Carlo was a renaissance man and I’ve long admired his work. The lines and the different materials make this piece so unique, artists usually use two materials, not three and this piece uses his knowledge of architecture, photography and car manufacturing.

Which table will you be sitting in on Christmas day?
I’ll be sitting around the Rick Owens ‘Plug Table (Bronze and Black Plywood)’. It sits 14, but there’ll only be 6 of us around this Christmas.
