After your super ace response to Melbourne’s Tressel Table Co. tables a few weeks back (thankyou you guys ROCK), I figured Sydney-based start-up Ply Candy would also be well worth a mention!

Launched in June this year by architect and furniture designer Martin Moeller, Ply Candy is all about making sustainable, modern plywood  furniture locally at an accessible price point.  I’m always on the hunt for affordable, Australian made furniture – it’s so great to see some fresh new solutions to this conundrum!

Martin uses digital technology to cut precise plywood shapes for each of his designs, thus minimising waste and getting the most out of each sheet of plywood. Once all pieces are cut, they are assembled and finished by hand in Martin’s Sydney workshop (with the exception of a couple which come flat-packed).  Remaining off-cuts are turned into smaller products such as bangles and tea-light candle holders.

Having worked as an architect for many years, Martin is very conscious of the hazardous chemical compounds found in many composite timber products.  For this reason, he has selected sustainably grown Finnish Birch Plywood with an E0 emissions rating for all Py Candy products.

The debut Ply Candy range has a minimalist, Scandi-inspired feel, and currently includes various chairs, stools, tables, occasional furniture and a super cute coat rack (pictured below), with prices starting at AU $290.00.  All are available to purchase via the Ply Candy website.

Martin is already developing a number of new pieces of furniture, with plans for a complete flat-pack series and a range of kids’ furniture.  Lots going on… watch this space!
