Office alcoholic

Who ever said bar carts are only suited for bottles of liquor doesn’t have a clue about the needs of an architect. Yes, I do need a drink from time to time – hello, deadlines! – but I need my pencils and notebooks way more often!

Architecture is a very interesting job, but it does include a lot of computer work. When I’m not visiting construction sites, having meetings with clients or attending openings of cool buildings, I’m drafting on AutoCAD, calling the contractor or joiner and doing paperwork behind my desk (which is about 90% of the time). It’s safe to say I need my pencils, telephone and coffee (about four a day) close by, so this mobile Notre Monde bar cart meets all my needs. It’s minimalistic, black and has this cool tubular round frame so it fits practically everywhere. (Which is great, because I intend to keep it close!)

Most bar carts only have two levels, but this one has three so it can even hold a few things I don’t necessarily need; coffee table books to flick through whenever I feel uninspired, a few design objects to please the eye when I’m wandering off and some greenery to bring a little life to my desk area. From now on, whenever someone asks me my desk stable, I’ll answer ‘a bar cart’ instead of ‘coffee’, and will gladly accept the nickname as ‘office alcoholic’ too.
