Description

Serving Trolley - Scandinavian Design Classic

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.

Organically Curved Frame

The patented frame of the trolley presented in 1936 at the Triennale in Milan can be found in reverse form similar to the world-famous Paimio chair 41 by Alvar Aalto. His predilection for curved, organic forms runs like a red thread through his products and gives them his unmistakable signature.

Versatile Side Table or Tea Trolley

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.

Hella Jongerius' reinterpretation of the 901 serving trolley is a collaboration between the designer and Artek, in which they jointly revise Alvar Aalto's classics and archived designs.
