Made in Ply Ltd (formerly, Custom Desk LTD) was founded by Daniel Lobato, an esteemed RIBA Chartered Architect who has worked for practices all over the world including Fosters & Partners in London and Nation Viney in Sydney. After struggling to find a desk to fit his home office, Daniel designed and commissioned a bespoke desk himself. The desk worked so well he decided to make them available for other like-minded people who want to maximise their workspace, however big or small.

Made in Ply Ltd has grown rapidly since launching in 2013 and the business now supplies its iconic customised desks, and other furniture products, for homes and offices across the UK. All of our desk and furniture products are made in the South West of the UK and manufactured to the highest quality.


Our ethos is simple: Pre-designed products in any size. Minimal, functional and beautiful. Those are the key principles behind all of our designs. All of our products are made to measure so that they fit perfectly into any space, and have been designed with easy self-assembly in mind. This allows us to have our products shipped across the whole of the UK. We can also offer an assembly service if required.

Our simple range of products provides endless possibilities whilst retaining a unified theme across your design/project. Our timeless products are suitable for both small residential to large commercial spaces and everything in between.
