Hong Kong-based furniture brand BUTTERPLY offers innovative self-assembled desks in four sizes
Local furniture brand BUTTERPLY, run by design studio Upscaling Operations (UPSOP), announces their multi-purpose desk series.
The tables, enabling height adjustment without screws, are inspired by traditional craftsmanship of wooden joints. “Global brand’s products are common in Hong Kong but there are not too many choices. Also, users may encounter difficulties during installation,” says Dennis Cheung, one of the founders of UPSOP.
The series contains four types of desks, including one standing desk, and three different desks for both working and dining. Functional modules are embedded on top of the desk, which can be used as pen-holders, book-holders and even a wire-organiser.
All products are made of plywood, and according to the founders, the process of manufacturing plywood is more resource-efficient, in line with the idea of environmental protection.
“We use sustainable plywood to make quality desks that are far more durable, sturdier and moisture-proof than ordinary furniture. DIY furniture is not inferior in terms of materials or design. On the other hand, it is not necessarily a luxury item either,” Nick Gu, co-founder of UPSOP concludes.
