A Splurge-Worthy Libation Station

The perfect bar cart for indulging in ski season’s cherished après tradition


For indulging in ski season’s cherished après tradition, this sexy cylinder of a trolley offers “cart” blanche to holiday entertaining.

Chic Shanghai-based studio Neri&Hu found inspiration in the Chinese pinyin word “mi”—with its dual message of “looking” and “secret”—in designing a 2021 series of Mi storage units for the incomparable Poltrona Frau.

The trolley’s poplar-and-birch shell is luxuriously clad in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather crafted with an exclusive canneté texture by Italian leather masters, its interior shadowed in dark walnut veneer—and its contents unexpectedly revealed from above through tempered glass.

The burnished steel frame creates a self-handle, cozied in hand-stitched leather, while sleek swivel castors deftly navigate happy hour.
