Our plywood furniture is environmentally friendly and sustainable. We believe that if we take care of nature, then nature will take care of us.
We got started as a family business in 2010 by making and selling garden furniture. We realised quite quickly, that we had a lot more to give and moved indoors. Today most of our production crosses borders, mainly to Germany, France and the UK. In 2022, our furniture found a warm welcome in 21 countries.

Made in Estonia
Our furniture is designed and hand made in Estonia from locally sourced raw material. Our plywood comes either from Estonia, Latvia, Belgium and Finland, which is just a hop-skip-and-jump away. We are a family business and make furniture that makes sense to us. Furniture that lasts for generations, not until the next fashion cycle. Furniture that is sustainable, made with birch plywood from sustainably grown forests.
In fact, plywood is a truly Estonian product. In 1897 the Luther furniture factory in Tallinn invented waterproof plywood glue and in the same year established Venesta in London. In 1931 they established Isokon, which has gone into the history books with modern design plywood furniture. Isokon made furniture together with such world famous Bauhaus designers like Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. During the 30’s Isokon even commissioned work from Le Corbusier’s studio. So it is no understatement to say, that plywood is our thing!
Our designs are subtle but distinct

Self-taught furniture designer who takes fanciful ideas and turns them into practical applied art.
“Wood has been my passion, hobby and work for over 40 years. Although I haven’t studied design, I’ve got an eye for what works. None of my designs has ever been created just for aesthetic reasons. Each piece of furniture has to have a clear function and idea behind it.”
Design is the personal (purchase) decision of each person to determine the quality of the environment around him.
“Each person is a designer. With the choice of furniture, each human ultimately designs his/her own surroundings. Choosing a style should be based on an inner feeling and furniture design and appearance should have a deeper symbolic meaning than just being a thing. Furniture plays an important role in our homes. Our home should be just that right and inspiring environment for our every day lives to play out.”
Focusing on the essentials that make life less complex.
“When it comes to furniture, essentials are the products we really need and love. The stuff that surrounds us shouldn’t be there to impress our neighbours – it should be a part of ourselves. Especially in a time when it is getting rough outside, we need a home that protects us and keeps us comfortable. Living essentials means to have minimalist but unique things which keep our homes simple in complicated times. This helps to make our life feel less complex.”
Young Designer who has always enjoyed designing and prototyping furniture around him.
„I have noticed that objects that we use can have a big impact in our daily life. Because of that, when designing a product I want to keep in mind how it would fit with the end-users’ needs, on top of it being aesthetically pleasing.“
Vitold Heer was born in Karaganda Kazakhstan. After studying fine arts, he traveled to Germany in 1994 and devoted himself to studying product design in Münster. Since then he has inspired with his creative ideas and brings a breath of fresh air into the furniture world.
In the case of furniture design, it is elementary that the piece of furniture is functional and long-lasting, but in addition it could be beautiful and something special that would create a bit of excitement in people and offer positive emotions. This is exactly the kind of item I want to create for people that would make them feel good.
Product designer interested in furniture design
“Beauty lies in functionality and simplicity. When I design each new piece of furniture, I proceed from user-centered design, where the focus is on user comfort and functionality. I think that every piece of furniture created should be made with a long-term perspective in mind. Therefore, the timeless appearance of the product is also important to me”
