View all 4 Photos

Recently presented at Milan Design Week, Motus is a hybrid table and wheelbarrow designed by Elena Salmistraro for PADIGLIONEITALIA. The simple design balances on two legs and a wheel and comes with a tray painted to match. Made of solid tulipwood, the piece of furniture is naturally strong yet soft, even quaint in appearance. Motus can be easily moved throughout the home, a migrant function that the designer considers important to Italian culture and aesthetics.
