Steel Pipe Drink Trolley

by Shiro Kuramata from Cappellini

steel pipe drink trolley

Design Shiro Kuramata, 1968
Powder-coated iron tube, white laminate
Made in Italy by Cappellini

Originally designed in 1968, the Steel Pipe Drink Trolley, by Shiro Kuramata, is still strikingly contemporary, a reflection of the research in which form and function are immediately evident, but contradistinguished by the refined aesthetics of the celebrated designer who, here, makes a clear reference to the curves of the Sofa With Arms.

A design icon, Shiro Kuramata was the Japanese designer who best epitomized the spirit of the era in which he lived, through his highly significant products and creations. In 1965, he founded the Kuramata Design Office in Tokyo, where he remained until the year of his death, in 1991, working on numerous projects that entered the product and Design hall of fame. Kuramata first encountered Italian design through Memphis, then in 1987, with Cappellini, for whom he created the Progetti Compiuti chest of drawers series. All of the pieces Kuramata made for the company were incredibly well-received, such as the Steel Pipe Drink Trolly, the Sofa With Arms, the Ko-Ko table, the Bookshelf and the Revolving Cabinet chest of drawers. Kuramata's designs are still remarkably modern, and many can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Metropolitan Museum, the Vitra Design Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art of Toyama.

By virtue of the decades-long collaboration with Shiro Kuramata - after his passing through the namesake foundation dedicated to continuing the philological studies of the artist/designer's innumerable projects - in 2014 a surprisingly simple and intuitive new object was born: a cart on wheels with a frame made of iron tubes varnished with black matte finish epoxy powder and shelves in white laminate, with matte black carters and wheels made of grey plastic, suitable for delicate surfaces. This iconic project is available in the hues that most characterize the Kuramata's works.
