EightySevenDesign are a Melbourne based furniture studio focused on unique design and quality construction.
Furniture by EightySevenDesign is a blend of retro / modern / industrial styles, incorporating bold lines with smooth curves. Every dimension is thoroughly analysed to ensure a unique, balanced and desirable piece of furniture is made. Each piece is methodically planned in order to create a strong long lasting product. They do not attempt to hide construction methods and techniques but rather make a feature of them. With each screw highlighted by a plywood plug construction it is honest and the end product looks good.
Currently the furniture sold (excluding custom orders) is made from Birch plywood. Visually Birch is bold and striking, with large swirls of grain throughout the veneer. They also offer furniture made from birch and ply which is available in a variety of colours. Pieces made from form ply have an unmistakable Industrial look about them. When you add the featured plywood plugs the result is a very bold piece of furniture.
EightySevenDesign currently offer a range of retro modern furniture with further designs to come. If they don’t have something that suits your needs they will design and create something that will be sure to make a statement in your home.
