Container serving trolley with wheels
With the Barboy Verner Panton laid the foundation for a new trend: mobile pieces of furniture were to become the standard furnishings of countless houses and apartments in the decades to come. In 1963, when Panton moved to Basel, Switzerland, to work with Vitra on new furniture concepts, he was particularly interested in designing flexible furniture for more flexibility in interior design. He therefore mounted many of his designs from this period on wheels - including the Barboy .
The Barboy is a perfect example of Panton's approach to designing flexible apartment space: The bar cabinet can be moved easily and quickly on its four chrome castors, while offering plenty of space for contents of all kinds.
When closed, nothing interferes with the cylindrical shape and clean lines of the Barboy . When open, the multi-part piece of furniture offers three different sized compartments, of which the two upper compartments can be swung out. In the compartments is space for any bar accessories - from numerous bottles to glasses to corkscrews or coasters, everything comes in the wood-made Barboy under.
Since Verner Panton was a proponent of flexibility and versatility, the intended use of the Barboy but not limited to the home bar: also in the living room, bathroom or kitchen, the rolling helper is well usable - just everywhere where things should be stowed and mobile.
