HÛT, a London Architecture practice, designed an eponymous gin trolley for event hosting that doubles as office furniture.

The mobile cart is a modern iteration of traditional 1920s cocktail carts, made "for the pleasure of any gin connoisseur." Crafted from plywood, this contemporary design is comprised of specialized storage compartments as well as a blackboard that can be used for writing daily drink specials. The pivoting wheels allow for the cart to be smoothly pushed around the office, making alternative storage solutions more manageable. The light tone of the birch wood brings a subtle sense of playfulness into the office, while the trolley's sophisticated and traditional structure elicits a sense of nostalgia.

These gin trolley would appeal to an office with a younger demographic and a focus on experience-oriented design.
