Designed by Verner Panton in 1963, Barboy came from the designer’s efforts to create flexible furniture for a variety of interior spaces. Made up of four cylindrical sections, the trolley is part side table, part container, and combines both form and function at every angle. Since the swinging compartments increase in size towards the bottom, the lower compartment is large enough to hold bottles, while the top sections can hold smaller household items. When Panton first created the table, it was available in black, white, red, or violet. Today, it’s produced by Verpan out of varnished moulded plywood—and is available in black, white, or blue. It can be easily rolled around, thanks to a set of wheels.
