Based outside of Milan, Atim is a manufacturer of innovative aluminum "furnishing solutions," in the company's words. In practice that means drawer slides, hinges and guides that do unexpected things. As an example, Atim hardware allows surfaces to deploy from, or disappear back into, a cabinet. Like so:
Dining Table 1
Dining Table 2
Dining Table 3
Note that these videos are Sugatsune-branded but that Sugatsune is the distributor, not the manufacturer. All of the hardware you see is by Atim, and you can explore their solutions here.
