The tambour door aka the shuttering system for cabinets, has revolutionized home customization with its use in the kitchen being the most remarkable. However, Michael Bambino, an industrial designer based in Brooklyn took the idea and flipped it completely on its head by creating a table that can be shut and opened via a sliding action that mimics the shuttering of the tambour doors. What even more wonderful about the Tambour Table is that allows users to retain the looks of an average work desk/computer table (the ones that come without an ugly and imposing underside of cabinets) without the user having to see a bunch of cables and wires trickling under it.
The Tambour Table comes with a unique surface that can be slid to a side to reveal a bunch of drawers and USB ports etc. on either side of the table. When you need to access the storage of the USB ports, simply walk to the table and give its top a gentle push to a side to reveal whatever treasures you may have hidden there.
The tabletop can be slid from either side though you’d still have to be mindful of whatever you have stored on top of the table since the rolling top would also topple whatever is on it overboard when you slide the surface too far off. With a single power cable coming out the back of one of the legs, you won’t need to buy and hide a separate power strip to keep your gadgets powered and stacked on one single table.
