Trolleys by Studio Knol and Christiaan Bakker

Airplane trolleys have long been a favourite target of upcycling projects by designers but few have been as ambitious as Studio Knol and Christiaan Bakker, who were commissioned by KLM to create a multi-functional cabinet from a "cluster" of airplane trolleys.

The striking cabinet-shelf-table retains the familiar details of airplane trolleys, from castor wheels to handlebars.  The multiple compartments are designed to accommodate the needs of the urban nomad who wants to "fit your whole life in a box".  Perfect for aspiring trolley-dollies and those who want to capture the romance of flying (pre-budget airline days, of course).  

Customised "clusters" of the Trolleys closet is now available to order from Studio Knol.
