BARBOY BLUE

by Verner Panton, 1963

Mobile furniture is a great furnishing topic. The Barboy Blue from the Anniversary Edition 2016 of Verpan fulfills the wish for mobility and individuality like no other storage. Scrollable bar, table, bedside locker, sewing box, key storage or jewelry box – the Barboy Blue is used everywhere, where a stylish storage and shelf is wanted. The roll container is a true design classic, at least the design goes back on a draft of Verner Panton from 1963. Verner Panton, the Danish designer and architect, would have turned 90 years old this year. To mark this anniversary design interior specialist TAGWERC provides the roll container Barboy in a special blue colour with stainless steel accents on.

Barboy BLUE

Multi-purpose furniture were a big issue in the late 1960s. Almost in the begining of this decade, designer Verner Panton was concentrated on developing the mobility of furniture. In addition to a series of movable furniture such as the Barboy or the Modular Furniture System, Verner Panton designed the Partyset in 1965. As so often with Verner Panton the name of the Barboy gives information on the application: a rolling container that can be used as a mobile bar cart, but also to accommodate all sorts of utensils in the bathroom and bedroom.

The rollable table is made of bent and painted plywood. The three drawers of different heights are superimposed flexible and are swung open to the sides. A laminated wood panel is the final. It serves as a tray or shelf space. The Barboy Blue rests on four sturdy stainless steel castors. As a conclusion to top acts a signed stainless steel knob.
