Fabulous Storing: Sköna Hem 03/2018

Sköna Hem wrote about their ideas of fabulous storing in their newest number 4 (03/2018). One of the fabulous storing ideas was the fleimio trolley original.

The Sköna Hem wrote: “functional simplicity combined with the aesthetics. We have chosen the spring’s nicest and most clever storages.” Additionally, they wrote about the fleimio trolley original:” clever trolley on top of  wheels with places for books and firewood.”

fleimio trolley original - fabulous storage solution - sköna hemThe fleimio trolley’s design was created by Mr Tero Jakku (MA) from Finland. The trolley was created as a furniture for firewood in the beginning. Later, there has emerged new ways to use the trolley, e.g. for books, magazines, newspapers or for jeans.

Now the fleimio trolley is considered as a storage furniture. It is available in two models: either with locations for three or five shelves. There are two kinds of shelves available: either regular or wine. The trolley equipped with the wine shelves is called the fleimio wine trolley: a catering trolley for wines or milk cans – for office or home parties.

The trolley suits various spaces: homes, offices and hotels. It can have many different roles and functions depending on the space. The same trolley can be used for many roles: some day it can be a storing place for fire wood, some other day for company products, next day a stand for the company brochures – and on friday – the trolley for serving good quality red wine for the clients.

The fleimio trolley’s material is laminated birch veneer. It will be delivered fully assembled ready to be used. Dimensions are 100 x 400 x 28 cm. It weights about 6 kg. Currently it is available in four colours: white, grey, black and red.

We exhibited the accessories (regular shelf, wine shelf and fleimio bag) for the trolleys in the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 6.-10th of February 2018. Read more here:
