The 901 Tea Trolley Black Birch Base was designed by Alvar Aalto for the brand Artek .
Aalto was a pre-eminent 20th century Finnish designer. Capable of creating masterworks in glass, wood, and concrete, he was one of the first designers to see the potential for bent plywood. This allowed him to mobilise his full creativity, adding new shapes and curves to familiar styles. His success led to the formation of Artek , a company that Aalto ran with his wife Aino, and which still shines brightly on the Finnish scene.
The 901 Tea Trolley Black Birch Base is made from a mix of birch, linoleum, and MDF. It has two levels of shelving, both of which measure 90 x 50 x 50 cm. The lower level offers enough height for teapots, long glasses or champagne coolers, making the trolley ideal for parties and social occasions. The slimline wheels of the 901 Tea Trolley Black Birch Base provide total mobility, while the overall look is stylish enough to work well as an occasional table - not just a working trolley. Full of character and humour, this tea trolley will add fun to afternoon tea or garden get-togethers, and superbly mixes aesthetics and practical features.
