In honour of the famous puzzle's 40th anniversary, here are the best bright pieces in Rubik's colours

Today marks 40 years since the invention of that mind-bendingly frustrating Seventies favourite, the Rubik's Cube. In honour of its inventor, Ernő Rubik, who was a professor of interior design in Budapest, and of the beautiful weather, we've collected a Rubik's rainbow of bright buys for outdoor dining - one for each colour of the cube.
