Cesare (also known as Joe) Colombo was born in Milan in 1930. He studied at the Academia Brera and later at the Faculty of Architecture at the Polytechnic in Milan. Before becoming a designer he worked as a painter, builder, car salesman (his passion for cars stayed with him) and an electronics entrepreneur.
Colombo left behind many masterpieces in just over ten years until his death in 1971, and became a star in the Italian design of the 1960s.
'Bobby Trolley' was designed by Joe Colombo in 1970.
Originally designed for use near a desk. Characterised mainly by high storage capabilities and functionality of items that are needed in a limited space.
