Service trolley

A solid wood cart aimed to aid at helping hosts serve and entertain guests with style at home, the Service Trolley rescues an old furniture archetype through an updated simple yet elegant design.

Ediciones Jalapa invited Jorge Diego to create this object for their service furniture collection produced in collaboration with La Carpintería MX workshop. E/J is a space dedicated to research, promote and develop design through limited edition contemporary objects, and in this occasion commissioned 5 young designers to work furniture pieces for extraordinary tasks at home.

Parting from the typical form of a service cart constructed from two trays placed vertically, Jorge Diego shifts these basic elements, reworks the structure into a cantilever design and adds oversized front wheels to create a refreshed and dynamic language.

Production was made at La Carpinteria MX, a traditional wood workshop focused on producing high quality handmade furniture with a revitalized sensitivity. For this project, La Carpintería MX produced all the furniture pieces in solid Banak wood with similar construction processes, thus creating a unifying visual language for the collection.
