Artek – Trolley 901 by Alvar Aalto

The 901 serving trolley is a design by the Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, who, together with his wife Aino Aalto, was inspired by British tea culture. The cart is equipped with two wheels and a frame made of curved plywood, which was manufactured according to the bow method. As early as the 1920s, Aalto experimented with wood as a material, tried to bring it into a curved form and finally found a method for bending thin, glued layers of wood under the influence of heat.

The serving trolley 901 can be used as a classic tea trolley, but can also be used as a side table decorated with a lamp, books or a bouquet of flowers. All kinds of objects can be arranged as desired on two floors on the linoleum panels.

Casamania – Chariot Mobile Table by GamFratesi 

Casamania’s Chariot mobile table is stylistically between a Roman battle cart and Alvar Aalto’s legendary serving caddy 901. The alienated Retro-style makes Chariot a product that couldn’t be more modern.

Connecting dramatically opposite elements is a typical characteristic of postmodernism. This provocative style does not spare the side tables, and this is how the Copenhagen design office GamFratesi designed a product that mixes worlds, making a sculptural and iconic impression thereby. The battle cart of ancient times that gives Chariot its name, says “hello.”

Normann Copenhagen – Block Table Trolley by Simon Legald

The function is clear and the design is refined. Block is a mobile side table with a light and airy appearance. Inspired by the well-known tray, this versatile piece of furniture is suitable for a variety of purposes.

Block is a mobile side table with wheels. The table-top is rectangular and can be transported comfortably thanks to the four handles – an extension of the table legs. Block has not got a front or back and it is therefore accessible from every side. Block can take on a number of different functions including that of a side table, a trolley, a coffee table, a tea cart or a night table.

USM Haller – Serving Trolley

The trolley by USM Haller is a classic among the mobile storage solutions. Used in the living room, kitchen or dining room, the trolley on wheels has enough space on its two tiers for dishes, books, cups, glasses, and much more. It is particularly useful to transport food from the kitchen to the dining table or serve as a simple piece of furniture for decorative and storage purposes.

The serving trolley by USM Haller consists of two shelves made from powder-coated steel and the patented frame with the USM knot point made of chrome-plated steel.

Kartell – Flip Side Cartby by Antonio Citterio

Kartell brings transparency into the world of hostess trolleys and serving trolleys with Flip: Flip is a versatile, foldable hostess trolley that presents a successful combination of a metal structure and plastic shelves.

Flip was designed by Antonio Citterio in cooperation with Toan Nguyen. The trolley shelves which are independent of each other consist of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). They represent the extreme synthesis of functionality and the pursuit of aesthetics with their lens-shaped profile. The Flip trolley can be folded after use to save space.

Fermob – Luxembourg Serving Trolley

Simple and practical is what the serving trolley from the Luxembourg collection by Fermob looks like. Inspired by the furniture in the Parisian Jardin du Luxembourg, the bar tray is full of charm and is designed with clear lines.

The Frenchman Frédéric Sofia is behind the timeless design. The castors on the Luxembourg trolley make it possible to easily use it inside and outside and as flexibly as needed. A removable tray is located on the top, which you can use to bring meals and drinks directly to the table.
