The Tumble is a cabinet where the user does not have to open the door, but gravity does the work!
By simply tilting the small wooden lever on top of the Tumble cabinet slightly forward, the door begins to open in a subtle and calm way. The nice thing is: you don't expect the door to open by this simple action, let alone with a graceful and slow 'swing'! The movement is surprisingly poetic and a pleasure for the eye.
Available in a number of standard colours which we change from time to time. Feel free to drop by the showroom or contact us to see what's available. Custom colours are also available on request.

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.
With us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!
We'll tell you the whole story. Click on the buttons to discover the different steps:
The Tumble cabinet is designed by Koen Devos. Koen has a passion for the simplicity of objects. In his designs he searches for large, but sometimes small, unexpected surprises. The inspiration for the Tumble cupboard came, among other things, from fences that you often come across on walking routes.
"Doors are usually opened with a handle. These handles are sometimes hidden or emphasized, but they are always present. While most cabinets use the same hinges or sliding mechanisms, there are other ways to open a door. This inspired me to design a cabinet where the user doesn't have to open the door, but gravity does the work".Koen Devos

The Tumble cabinet has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2015. When we present Vij5 at fairs and exhibitions we always keep our eyes open for interesting new designs for the Vij5 collection. The surprising movement with which the Tumble cabinet opens was spotted by Arjan during Kortrijk Interieur. A few weeks later the cabinet was awarded with a Reddot design award!
After the fair we agreed with Koen to discuss our possible cooperation, resulting in a new and striking product for our collection. The prototypes of the cabinets were made by Koen himself. Together we looked for a suitable manufacturer who could make the cabinets for us in an efficient way. We also added two oak planks to the inside of the cabinet, which made the cabinet more functional.
All you have to do is tilt the wooden stick on top of the cabinet slightly forward and you will be treated to a pleasant surprise!Arjan & Anieke
The Tumble cabinet is produced as a whole in Hulst (NL) by a manufacturer who is very good in the total picture from basic material to finishing. The cabinets are made of MDF and are lacquered in an automatic colour lacquering process after which they are assembled and packed in-house.
The cabinets are made in relatively small series and therefore we change the colours regularly.
In the material passport you can find where and by whom the different parts of this product are made.
