TEBUR: A Nigerian-made lightweight work table

Nigerian product designer Nifemi Marcus-Bello designs a portable work table that can be carried like a suitcase and is convenient for the office and the home.

TEBUR

Award-winning product designer Nifemi Marcus-Bello from Lagos, Nigeria has created the portable TEBUR (‘table’ in hausa). TEBUR is a flat-pack work desk designed with the ease of transportation and assembly in mind; the table accommodates the lifestyle of the users who live or work in small spaces for extended period of time.  

This table is a product inspired by the minimal: a substitution to heavy, awkward-to-transport furniture. When designing the table, Marcus-Bello considered transport options and crowded conditions of cities like Lagos and as a result the TEBUR is specially engineered to be light and allow easy, one-handed transportation.  

The table is made of adjusted manufacturing products, with four easy-to-screw legs made of wood. The design and structure of the table makes it easy to assemble without tools: the legs are screwed into their corresponding holes underneath the flat top.
