Coq

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.

Km31

Patrick Sarran created the Km31 for a large spectrum of restaurant uses. The main constraint was multifunctionality. This cart can be used singly for serving one table, or in a row with others for a buffet. The designer devised an articulated Krion top mounted on the same wheeled base he had designed for a range of trolleys such as the KEZA, and later the Kvin, the Herbal Tea Garden, and the Kali, together named the K series. The hardness of the Krion allowed a complete light finish to be chosen, with the sturdiness required for a luxurious establishment.

Herbal Tea Garden

Patrick Sarran created the Herbal Tea Garden as a unique item for the Landmark Mandarin Oriental of Hong Kong in 2014. The catering manager wanted a trolley on which he could perform the tea ceremony. This design re-uses the codes developed by Patrick Sarran in his K Series trolleys, including the KEZA cheese trolley and the Km31 multifunctional trolley, influenced by Chinese landscape painting.
