Serving trolley designed by Stig Lönngren for Konstfack,
Walnut with glass top, removable rattan basket.
Provenance: Stig Lönngren.
This innovative serving trolley was designed by the Swedish interior architect Stig Lönngren in 1947, and he used it at his own home. A compelling combination of materials accentuates the trolley's geometric shape. The walnut frame shows remarkable carpentry, while the glass surface is practical and allows for cups or plates to be placed on top without leaving marks or stains. A removable rattan basket provides storage, and the large wheels allow easy movement.
Stig Lönngren (1924-2022) received his carpentry qualifications a year before creating this table in 1947. He went on to become an important Swedish interior architect, working with Carl-Axel Acking, Sven Hesselgren, Arne Rudberger, KF arkitektkontor, and, from 1965, with Peter Celsing. Lönngren was also one of the founders of the HI group –a group of sixteen master craftsmen and interior architects who strove to renew Swedish furniture design during the first half of the 1960s.
