These Trolleys are way cool. Now if only they’d use wheels that wouldn’t look so cheap.
I may be dating myself, but I had one of these way back in the 80s! We sold them in the art supply store I worked in. They were cool then, they’re cool now! Thanks for the memories.
At almost $550 US, that is ridiculous. For the same amount or less, you could purchase a rolling tool chest in heavy-gauge steel that would have as much partitioned storage and be hell of a lot more durable.
hooo, I had one as well!! and gave-it away rather lightly, I am so sad now, it was super functional!
Alex, you are right. Taborets, I believe. Every design office in the 80’s had them! They look much cooler than they worked. They were just another thing to trip over when you got up from your desk to make a photostat or clean your rapidographs.
The BOBY (not Bobby) trolleys were designed by legendary designer Joe Colombo in 1970 and produced by Bieffeplast in Italy, and are still being manufactured. Good design = lasting
It doesn’t seem when MOMA decided to include them in their permanent collection they were bothered by the wheels….everyone is a critic
BOBY is produced by B-LINE an italian company…if you need information check in the website http://www.b-line.it.
