Tea Trolley 901 ColoRing Jo Nagasaka Red & Turquoise



Originally designed by Alvar Aalto in 1936 and reinterpreted by Jo Nagasaka in 2019, the red and turquoise ColoRing Tea Trolley 901 is crafted by Artek and exclusively available at The Conran Shop in the UK to coincide with London Craft Week 2019.

The design celebrates 100 years of strong diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan and makes up part of Artek’s FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, created in collaboration with Japanese and Finnish designers.

Crafted in Finland using two form-bent solid birch lamella hoops and supported by two MDF wheels, the trolley is easily manoeuvrable thanks to its solid birch handle. The trolley is finished with a soft-grained pine veneer and transformed using Nagasaka’s innovative ColoRing technique. Up until now, ColoRing had involved a time-consuming, fully-manual process created by fusing the traditional Japanese techniques of udukuri and tsugaru-nuri, but thanks to Artek’s revolutionary manufacturing techniques, the design can now be bought to a wider audience.

Instantly recognisable as a classic Alvar Aalto design with Jo Nagasaka’s artistic flourish, the ColoRing Tea Trolley 901 can be used to display your favourite beverages in your hallway, dining space or kitchen.

Please note: Due to the innovative nature of the ColoRing technique, each trolley features a uniquely grained finish and therefore will not match the picture exactly.
