The Tumble is a cabinet where the user does not have to open the door, gravity does the work!

By simply tilting the small wooden lever on top of the Tumble cabinet slightly forward, the door begins to fall open in a subtle and quiet manner. The funny 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 delight to the eye.

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.

For 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 was designed by Koen Devos. Koen has a passion for the simplicity of objects. In his Design he looks for big, but sometimes also small, unexpected surprises. The inspiration for the Tumble cabinet came, among other things, from fences you often come across at walking routes.

Koen Devos

"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 create a cabinet Design where the user does not 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 also always keep our eyes open for interesting new Design 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 a Reddot design award!

After the fair, we met with Koen to discuss our possible collaboration, resulting in a new and eye-catching product for our collection. The prototypes of the cabinets had been 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 shelves to the inside of the cabinet, making the cabinet more functional.

The Tumble cabinet is produced in its entirety in Hulst (NL) by a manufacturer that is very good at the total picture from basic material to finish. The cabinets are made of MDF and are painted to color in an automatic paint shop after which they are assembled and packed in-house.

The cabinets are made in relatively small series and with that we change the colors regularly.

In the material passport you can find where and by whom the different parts of this product are made.
