Modern workers are more mobile than generations past, and Nifemi Marcus-Bello's Tebur desk is an acknowledgement of that mobility. The Nigerian designer's hand-crafted wooden table comes with detachable legs that fasten to the underside of the tabletop, making it easy to deconstruct and carry to any working locale.

Tebur's legs attach to the underside of the table by slipping into fabric loops pinned there. The loops are stable but also relatively low-profile, meaning they don't interfere with the table's clean design when it's upright and assembled. Tebur also comes with a smooth handle carved into one of its long edges, further adding to the ease of transportation.

The name Tebur comes from the Hausa word for table. Hausa is the locally spoken language in and around Lagos, Marcus-Bello's hometown.
