About us

Plywood Project, above all, means functionality and a simple form; plywood furniture with a high sense of aesthetics; furniture that has simple but characteristic shapes with attention to detail. It is furniture made of plywood produced in Poland but with Scandinavian roots.

Furniture “Frisk” has its beginning in the word Frisk which means „freshness” in Danish and which in the Frisk series translates into unique designs that define your interiors.

Plywood Project was founded by two people, Darek and Robert. We met as our workshops are next to each other. From the combined passion for furniture, design, arts and experience in the production and renovation of furniture on a European scale, we have created our own project - Plywood Project. All our furniture is made in Poland.

Why have we decided to make our furniture out of plywood?

Plywood is the only material our furniture is made of (excluding few upholstery elements).

We chose it for several reasons. First of all, it is a great material for furniture construction in terms of strength. Secondly, in terms of aesthetics, it has something that other wooden materials do not have, visible layers of glued veneer so that the edges are different from surfaces. Thirdly, we were simply captivated by the characteristic pattern of birch wood. Fourthly, it is a natural product that is made of renewable materials.

Looking for the right plywood supplier, we arrived in Finland, where we were able to find birch plywood that meets our expectations and guarantees the highest quality.

How do we manufacture our plywood furniture? 

The vast majority of our Frisk Furniture is based on side legs, therefore the production process begins with cutting out openwork shapes on CNC. The irreplaceable Darek rules here producing all Frisk's legs, shelves, boxes, drawers, countertops, etc. First he cuts them out and then drills necessary holes so that drawers, cabinets, etc. can be assembled later on.

Next step is the grinding shop. Here Kasia is the boss and she shows great patience with the difficult and time-consuming process of grinding all elements. The most time-consuming are, of course, the legs. We came up with all the details in the form of openwork, curves, etc. only to make the life difficult in the production department. Although it seems that our products are very simple and composed of a small number of elements, their production takes a lot of time.


Trial assembly

Each piece of furniture is tested before it reaches the oiling phase. Drawers, fronts and handles are put together to check if everything is in its place.

Oiling of wooden furniture

The last phase in the production cycle is the oiling. This is the second most time-consuming element of the cycle and, like in a grinding shop, it takes the most time to protect the legs.

For aesthetic reasons, it was natural for us to choose matt oil. Varnishes, although also a good option (like any product, both oils and varnishes have their advantages and disadvantages) did not give us one most important thing, a characteristic matte coating, on which the delicate structure and wood pattern are clearly visible. Additionally, oils naturally protect the material without closing the pores allowing it to breathe.

We choose oils that are based on natural ingredients and meet the following standards: EN 71.3 - the coating is safe for children's toys, DIN 53160 - coating resistant to sweat and saliva, DIN 68861.1A - coating resistant to drinks stains. Category 1A gives the highest resistance. In addition, the oil layer is completely safe for humans, animals and plants and is approved for contact with food.

Oiling plywood is the last phase in our production process. What is left is to pack the pieces and send them to you.
