Minimal, functional and beautiful

Our Mission

Our ethos is simple: to make high-quality furniture that fits. Pre-designed plywood products in any size. Minimal, functional and beautiful: these are the key principles behind all of our designs.

Products are made-to-order or made-to-measure and designed and manufactured in the UK with easy self-assembly in mind, which enables us to ship our products across the whole of the country.

Daniel Lobato

Daniel Lobato is an esteemed Architect who has worked for practices all over the world, including Foster & Partners in London and Nation Viney in Sydney, before he set up his own practice in Devon, UK.

After struggling to find a desk to fit his office, Daniel designed and commissioned a bespoke desk himself. Delighted with the result, he decided to make a customisable product available for other like-minded people who want to maximise their workspace without compromising style or quality. Made in Ply now supply their customised desks, along with a range of other plywood furniture products, for homes and offices across the UK.

Daniel remains the lead designer, utilising his architectural skills to design exclusive products and layouts for customers' homes and offices. He has an uncompromising attention to detail and clean lines, and applies this thinking to all of his concepts. 

We continue to grow...

From humble beginnings in a basement office, Dan and his wife Jo now run Made in Ply from their office and workshop in North Devon. With the help of their skilled team, they continue to design and manufacture the products they love, delivering all over the UK every week.
