PlayWood is a innovative modular furniture system that combines connectors and boards to create desks, shelves, stools and many more.

The connectors are designed to give the possibility to everyone to realize his/her own project, by following easy instructions.

Thanks to our system, you can easily assemble a piece of furniture without specific tools or a manufacturing lab.

We do not create ready to use furniture, we provide connectors and instructions to realize the projects.
Our customers can find the material needed at a local supplier.
Together we can:

  • reduce the environmental impact and decrease the costs of transport
  • limit the consumption of material
  • use local materials, easy to find, recycle and reuse

Create your own furniture as a LEGO:
assemble and disassemble it every time you want, realizing a new shape.
PlayWood system allows you to recycle the material, store it or transport it flat pack.

A different approach to design furniture

Designed to be downloaded and made locally on demand, PlayWood projects can be customized on the basis of needs and creativity.
PlayWood circles around quality, sustainable design and affordable prices: we embrace new technologies, we optimize every resource and we realize contemporary furniture suitable for modern life.
Thanks to the development of digital fabrication tools and especially Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine technology, it is possible to provide an outsourced and sustainable production.
Designers and creative people worldwide can contribute to the project development: direct access to a global distribution without the lock-in of traditional intermediaries and independent Makers who work with us to realize innovative products, are the basis of our business model.

Open making

PlayWood is not only a product but a modern sharing platform.
Thanks to digital manufacturing technologies and the “Maker Movement”, we have the chance to 
rethink how goods and services are made and distributed on a global scale.
Join our Community of leaders and practitioners to change the rules of production and discuss how we will produce and consume in the 21st Century.
Designing, manufacturing and sharing can enable us to learn how to build more sustainable global and local networks, together we can create better and more sustainable products.
A production system composed of many nodes not yet subject to the rules of mass-production can provide new opportunities both for social and economic development.

Design and live a physical space

We experience the physical space just as we feel human emotions.
Without even realizing we sense and internalize what the space communicate us and that affects the way we work or live.
Innovation is the result of multiple minds working together toward a single goal: a physical space might influence the interaction between people, encourage the involvement and simplify the generation of new ideas.
A physical reinterpretation of spaces is a great contribution to participation; just like plants ideas need space and air to grow up. We believe that people should be able to shape their own spaces according to what they do, and what they believe.
