Boby is much more than a simple container: it is the trolley storage unit that made design history.
Designed by Joe Colombo and launched in 1970, it was awarded first prize at SMAU in 1971 and is part of the permanent collection of both the MoMA and the “Triennale” in Milan. Functionality and detail are its strong points which, together with an undeniably pop flavour, continue to make it the most popular storage trolley in creativity sectors as well as in the medical, and in the home.
Designed with injection-moulded ABS plastic drawers and compartments that guarantee simple vertically modular solutions, Boby provides versatile customised storage capacity, while its polypropylene casters guarantee full mobility

After studying science he changed to arts at secondary school. later he studied painting and sculpture at the Accademia di belle arti in brera, Milan before studying architecture at the polytechnic. From 1951 to 1955, Joe Colombo worked independently as a painter and sculptor. He joined the 'nuclear painting' movement and later became a founding member of the 'art concrete' group. He came to design relatively late.
