French designer Jérôme Dumetz placed a wheel on each corner of this wooden sideboard to turn it into a miniature truck (+ movie).

Not For Highway Use is a mobile sideboard based on a 20 cubic metre truck.

"It's like an abstract composition of three boxes, but with four wheels it becomes a truck," said Jérôme Dumetz. "It was made more for the parents than for the children."

The sideboard is made from birch plywood and solid chestnut, with the addition of four wheels taken from an industrial trolley.

"It's the kind of project I always wanted to do but never took the time to create," Dumetz told Dezeen. "A special mood between children's toys and grown-up furniture."

We've featured a few other pieces of furniture on wheels, including a trolley with huge wheels like a chariot and a wheeled storage system that looks like the Space Invaders arcade game.
