Isokon Penguin Donkey Mark 2 by Ernest Race for Isokon Plus.

The Penguin Donkey Mark 2 was designed in 1963 after Jack Pritchard asked Ernest Race to reconfigure Egon Riss's original design to include a flat top that would allow it to be used as a side table.

Promotional literature for the updated Penguin Donkey describes the design as an "obliging creature" which "holds up to 90 paperbacks in two panniers … and provides a convenient chairside table for your tray of hors d’oeuvres, coffee cups, glass, ashtray, knitting or anything else you want to keep beside you.”

White painted wood with legs in cherry wood.
