The tea trolley was inspired by British tea culture, which Aino and Alvar Aalto had become acquainted with through their many travels, as well as by the Japanese woodwork and architecture they admired. With a frame composed of two birch lamella loops, Tea Trolley 901 features two shelves and a solid birch handle. Twin wheels, in combination with the lightweight quality of birch, mean the trolley can be easily maneuvered and parked at will. Introduced at the 1937 Paris World's Fair, the Tea Trolley is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Can also double as a simple bar cart in a slick room, we love this piece.
