Stockholm 2011: Stockholm designer Axel Bjurström will present a collection of furniture including these wheeled side tables as part of the Greenhouse exhibition of work by young designers at Stockholm Furniture Fair next week.
Above and top: Dolly. The dolly side table takes care of the pile of magazines often found on the bottom shelf or on the floor next to the sofa. It uses the weight of the magazines to gain stability and the small wheels on the backside make it possible to move your pile around just like a hand dolly.
Called Dolly, the tables incorporate a bar to hold magazines, which in turn weight the piece.
Other products in Bjurström's collection include a combined vase and candlestick, a tray in the shape of a wedding ring, makeup mirror and two chair designs.
Above: Flora. Flora gives you the possibility to use your candlestick as a vase or combining candles and flowers in your candelabra. It is made of high quality laboratorial glass and has a conic silicone joint in the bottom to sit steady in almost all sorts of candlestick.
Stockholm Furniture Fair takes place 8-12 February.
Above: Precious. Precious is a tray with the shape of a classical wedding ring. It is made of d-profiled brass pipe and it can be customized with your personal inscription laser engraved on the inside of the rim.
