Designed by Jonas Trampedach for Frama, the Rivet Cart is a raw aluminium storage piece with hand-hammered rivets and bright orange castor wheels. Rivet Cart is an elegant and versatile addition to Frama's Rivet Series. This easy-to-transport mobile cart features a lipped tray top with two open shelves below, combining traditional furniture craftsmanship and modern industrial production.
Aluminium is inherently soft and can therefore be difficult to weld and screw. With that in mind, a riveting technique was developed for the Rivet series project. Based on the traditional hand construction technique of riveting, the Rivet Series is made of laser-cut raw aluminium sheets, hereafter joined together by hand using a basic hammer tool. The traditional riveting technique takes advantage of the aluminium's workability making it easy to shape. Hand-made in a local workshop, the designs will show natural irregularities. In keeping with the purity of the design and honest construction, the aluminium is left untreated. The raw aluminium surface will develop its own and unique graceful patina over time.
Thanks to its sturdy construction, the Frama's Rivet Collection is both a functional and aesthetically product series suitable for any room or space. This timeless item can be used as a side table, storage unit, pedestal for display or a combination of all three.
