Plico Folding Trolley Cart by Richard Sapper for Alessi
Plico Folding Trolley by Richard Sapper for Alessi
Designed by Richard Sapper in the 1970s, the "Plico" trolley is one of the lesser known, though more representative, projects from this unforgettable artist's body of work. Sapper developed his projects starting from a problem that he identified in an existing object or from something that was missing:
"I am always interested in doing something new, increasing our life tools.
I am interested in designing new things that have their uses or make sense".
And with "Plico" Sapper undoubtedly managesto increase the scope of our "domestic utensils". Easy to handle and extremely compact when folded, "Plico" can be used both as a food trolley and as a sofa table. With one simple movement, the top flips over and the trolley is completely transformed. The top becomes slightly protruding with respect to the body of the trolley, turning into a surface for working or eating a meal.
