Neom Studio: Where a spark ignited a sustainable design journey

It began in 2016 with a simple task: "design a flatpack chair" , a task for the interior design study at Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture (FGPA) in Maribor, Slovenia. This was the spark, an inextinguishable flame ignited - a passion for crafting furniture that is as intriguing as it is sustainable.

Neom Studio is the cornerstone upon which I venture into the boundless realms of design. I believe furniture should be more than just functional; it should spark curiosity, inspire conversation, and elevate your space.

Intriguing design lies at the heart of my philosophy. I try not to follow trends; but experiment with the potential of birch plywood, pushing the boundaries of conventional furniture design to create unique and captivating pieces

Neom Studio is a journey, not a destination. I am constantly exploring, ever-expanding boundaries and experimenting with new possibilities. Join me on this journey of discovery, and let Neom Studio transform your space with furniture that whispers possibilities and embodies sustainable design.

Sustainable Materials

We source our wood exclusively from responsibly managed Baltic birch forests that adhere to strict environmental and social standards. This means the forests we source from are replanted and maintained for future generations, ensuring a sustainable supply of this remarkable material. 

By choosing responsibly sourced Baltic birch plywood, we contribute to the health of our planet. These managed forests act as natural carbon sinks, absorbing harmful CO2 from the atmosphere. Additionally, sustainable forestry practices promote biodiversity and habitat protection for wildlife. When you choose our furniture, you're not just investing in a beautiful piece; you're making a positive impact on the environment.

Eco-Conscious Production

One key aspect is our utilization of CNC technology. This advanced cutting system ensures precision and minimizes waste during the cutting process. By carefully optimizing our designs for CNC cutting, we maximize the potential of each plywood sheet, significantly reducing wood scraps that would otherwise end up in landfills.

Furthermore, our furniture designs prioritize the inherent beauty and strength of birch plywood. We avoid unnecessary metal or additional materials for fixation, relying on traditional and innovative woodworking techniques to create strong and long-lasting pieces. This approach not only minimizes environmental impact but also celebrates the natural beauty and versatility of wood.

Enduring Quality

At NEOM Studio, we believe furniture should be an investment, not a disposable item. That's why we use Baltic birch plywood, renowned for its exceptional strength and durability. This remarkable material ensures your furniture can withstand everyday use and become a cherished heirloom, passed down through generations.

The benefits extend beyond personal value. By choosing furniture built to last, you contribute to a more sustainable future. Durable furniture reduces the need for frequent replacements, minimizing the environmental impact associated with manufacturing and disposal. You're not just investing in a beautiful piece; you're making a conscious choice for a more sustainable lifestyle.

Plywood's enduring legacy

Plywood transcends its utilitarian reputation. It's a testament to human ingenuity, boasting a rich history and boundless potential.

At NEOM Studio we celebrate this versatile material, from its design flexibility to its surprising contributions.

Plywood's sculptural nature ignited a revolution in 20th-century furniture design. Its ability to be shaped and molded birthed iconic pieces that continue to inspire. But its impact extends far beyond aesthetics. Plywood's uniform strength and remarkable durability have made it a game-changer across industries. From lifesaving medical supplies to the sturdy infrastructure of aircraft and railways, plywood has quietly played a vital role in progress.

We harness plywood's inherent qualities and leverage the precision and efficiency of CNC milling to craft furniture pieces built to endure for generations. Furthermore, these pieces are designed to not only meet but surpass your expectations for functionality. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our use of high-grade Baltic birch plywood, sourced from responsibly managed forests. We strive for maximum utilization of each plywood panel with minimal waste, thanks in part to the precision of CNC milling. This minimizes our environmental footprint and ensures you receive the most value from this remarkable material. This, along with plywood's inherent strengths and the advanced capabilities of CNC technology, is why we choose it to create functional, affordable, and long-lasting furniture for your home and workspace.

While plywood remains a cornerstone for its strength and versatility, we're constantly exploring innovative and sustainable materials to bring our designs to life. This allows us to combine the best of traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge materials, ensuring both beauty and functionality in every piece.
