This sleek and subtle bar table was designed by Rolf Rastad and Adolf Relling of Norway in the 1960s. It won first price in the Norwegian Design Competition of 1962 and is a perfect picture of balancing form and function in design.
A restrained size with crisp clean lines, there is nothing to distract or take away from the gorgeous chaotic grain patterns of the rosewood throughout the table. The top raises over exposed hinges to reveal a drink serving bar complete with a spinning tray molded to hold glasses surrounding a deep well for ice and a bottle of wine. The molded plastic inserts for glasses is easily removable to allow for cleaning.
Rich, fun and of very high quality, this is an unusually enjoyable little cocktail table.
Rolf and Adolf also designed a few variations of this table, including ones without the ice bucket, sewing table variations with a suede basket bottom as well as models in teak and ebony woods.
Measurements: 17" H x 23 3/4" diameter
