Chariot by GamFratesi for Casamania

Milan 2012: Copenhagen designers GamFratesi presented this trolley with enormous wheels for Italian brand Casamania in Milan last month.

Called Chariot, it comprises two trays in MDF or oak joined by a metal structure that doubles as a handle.

The wheels have rubber rims and the whole thing can be finished in white, bright red or natural oak with black metal.

Here's some more information from Casamania:


Chariot is a mobile table consisting of three simple elements joined together: wheels, trays and structure. The wheels, which in common carts are usually small, are brought to the extreme size, becoming the iconic element of the project.

The rubber profile is inserted into the wheels for easy movement; the two trays act as storage compartments, the metal structure is also a handle: slightly raising the cart, it can be moved.

    ^ yeah? and? so it uses solid wheels, are you also reminded of every other chair that utilizes the principle of four legs when you see a new chair with 4 legs?

    Using circles for wheels, how original, or a rectangle for a tray…so euclidean.

    would be great for Hotels.. if it were easier to push around.

    looks fantastic! love it, but notice that when you put your breakfast and everything on the trolley, you have to angle it to transport. So that everything falls of and spills.
    I love basic shapes though!

    Looks a lot like Aalto’s tea trolley of 1937.
