Plywood Office conceives, prototypes and produces quality furniture. We believe good product comes from good practice, whether in the nitty‑gritty of in‑house production, or designing for and partnering with larger manufacturers. Good practice is the constant exploration of new and age‑old wood working techniques. Plywood Office has a single-minded dedication to our craft, which is evident in the quality of our products.
