Joe Colombo Boby trolley storage cart (new and vintage)

Designer: Joe Colombo

Director: Joseph Kosinski

The Boby trolley storage cart has long been a favourite of designers, artists and… space travellers!

We have spotted the Boby trolley in Space 1999, Oblivion and Pain and Glory, amongst many other films and TV series.

Designed by Joe Colombo in 1970 is it still very much available today.

A “shelving tower” as Joe Colombo himself called it, a “rational, functional and functioning” object.‎ The iconic Boby, featured in the MoMA permanent collection in New York and the “Triennale” in Milan, was put back into production by B-Line in 1999.‎
A dynamic complementary service piece that can adapt over time, the trolley fits in amazingly well with today’s paradigms of contemporary work, home/office requirements and cultural and social nomadism.‎

The ABS plastic structure featuring drawer and shelving modules is mounted on 5 swivel casters and offers 4 different height solutions with various configurations, giving a total of 14 possible models.‎

Available in White, Black, Red, Tornado Grey, Bonnie Blue, Tender Rose, Cumin and Aluminium; also with multilayered wooden or cork top.‎
