Container serving trolley with castors
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 living space: The bar cabinet can be moved easily and quickly on its four chrome-plated castors, while offering plenty of space for contents of all kinds.
When closed, nothing interferes with the cylindrical form and clean lines of the Barboy . When open, the multi-part piece of furniture offers three differently sized compartments, of which the two upper compartments can be swung out. In the compartments there is space for all kinds of bar accessories - from numerous bottles and glasses to corkscrews and coasters, everything can be stored in the wooden Barboy under.
Since Verner Panton was an advocate of flexibility and versatility, the purpose of the Barboy is not limited to the house bar: the rolling helper can also be used in the living room, bathroom or kitchen - everywhere where things should be stored and mobile.
