Tambour is a collection of side tables that would fit into almost any setting, next to a faded sofa from the 50’s, or in the sleek lounge of a modern night spot. With this idea in mind, we needed to find a common language that would form the basis for a range of variations and permutations. Tambour tables feature a very industrial design in die-cast aluminium, and are available with one or two tops, and with or without wheels. We shaped these tables to strike a balance between formal elegance and simplicity, as our aim was to achieve a discretion for this object that has no explicit pretensions of modernity.
