Tu™ Filing & Storage

It's All About You Your personal workspace needs to serve you so you’re free to do your best. That’s why with Tu, the spotlight is on you. In fact, “tu” means “you” in French, Spanish, and Italian. It stands right by your side, keeping your things in reach, in sight, in place, and secure if need be. With its broad filing and storage offering, Tu does it all, efficiently, without frills. Practical and down-to-business, it’s a great value, focused on essential function without sacrificing quality, choice, or refined looks.

Material Choices You can see the quality of Tu in the clean lines and details. You also see it in how well Tu coordinates and aligns with its surroundings. Because Tu’s quality isn’t just in the welding, locks, and steel ball-bearing slides. It’s skin deep, too. There’s a generous choice of appealing colors—light and dark neutrals, bold accents, and metallics. Veneers include wood, recut, and cathedral recut. The choice of pulls helps Tu coordinate with a range of surroundings.
