Patrick Sarran created the Coq cheese trolley in 2012. The strangeness of this rolling item excites diners' curiosity, but make no mistake, this is primarily a working tool. This is achieved by means of a stylized varnished beech structure topped by a cylindrical red lacquered cloche which can be hung at the side to reveal an assortment of matured cheeses. Using the handle to move the cart, opening the box, sliding the board out to make a space for the plate, rotating this disc to cut portions of cheese, the waiter can develop the process into a little piece of performance art.
