Tembo

Tembo, tembo

Tembo is Swahili for elephant. When elephants walk, they always have at least one foot on the ground. They don’t run. Because of their straight legs and large pad-like feet elephants can stand for very long periods of time without getting tired. Just like our Tembo table and stool. They are part of our collection Marginal Notes #1, still in development and yet without a producer.
