A low-rise tambour credenza inspired by the process of weaving Ikat fabrics, in which each warp end is dyed individually with the desired pattern prior to weaving the final product. The result is a pattern that has a slightly 'fuzzy' appearance, a distortion inherent in the fabrics, yet shows the skill that is involved in such a labor-intensive process.
Each slat of the sliding door is treated as a warp end and hand dyed prior to assembling them together to create the tambour surface. The uneven quality of the lines creates an enhanced sense of movement as the tambour turns a corner, creating the illusion of unrolling fabric.
