British designer Tom Dixon has added a small wheel to a standard cafe table design to make it easier for staff to move around.
The base is made of cast iron while the solid birch top has a rubber bumper round its edge.
Dixon presented the design at his show in Milan in April. See all our stories about Milan 2011 »
The following is from the designer:
Roll is an example of indestructible mechanical practicality. A series of hard working tables specifically constructed to ease the workers’ burden. The rolling wheel on the cast iron base enables lone waiting staff to reconfigure tables with minimal fuss and assistance.
The robust bumper edge trim, extruded in rubber, allows tables to be grouped together and withstand the hard knocks of life.
