    Solid and easy to set up

    Fantastic. The desk was so easy to put together, and is solid and sturdy. I loved that there was no plastic or foam packaging.

    Goodbye Ikea! This best desk I've ever owned.

    As someone who spends the entire day at a desk, it’s important for me to have a big space where I can feel creative and productive. And this desk has done exactly that for me. It’s been beautifully designed and extremely well built. It’s clear that there has been a lot of thought put into this; from the hooks on the side to hang headphones and other items, a beautifully bevelled edge that borders the entire desk, and arguably the star of the show — the actual assembly of the desk. It took me no longer than 15 minutes to assemble it and not one screw, hammer or Allen key was needed… a refreshing and stark difference from the Ikea experience (which is always a nightmare).

    The Big Desk for Big Work Dreams

    Like so many other people around the world, my life was turned upside down during the worst of the Covid lockdowns and work cutbacks.In the midst of all this, an opportunity arose for me to work for myself, from home, and so I set about creating a positive and inspiring work space to make the most of this new beginning.The Ecosium Big Desk ticked so many boxes for me: eco-friendly, bigger than the average desk, aesthetically pleasing (I find the natural wood tones quite calming actually), versatile, sturdy, long-lasting, and not 'over-the-top' expensive.I love the natural look, solid feel and spaciousness of the desk, and I especially love the cool design feature where you can turn the desktop over, which will give the desk so much extra life and usefulness.As a mum of teenage daughters, I am showing my girls’ how ‘woke’ I am by purchasing a beautiful looking, sustainable, Australian-made desk from a company that is committed to giving back to the environment. So, that is a lovely added bonus for me too.I highly recommend the Ecosium Big Desk to anyone wanting a solid, spacious, inspiring workspace that looks and feels wonderful, makes you feel like you have done your bit for the environment and will be a really useful piece of furniture for many years to come.

    A secret shelf to keep things tidy.

    No cords or power bricks on the floor means you can’t get tangled up in power cord spaghetti! Plus, you can hide away any unsightly modems or external drives.

    Each part of the Big Desk is carefully wrapped in recycled kraft paper (perfect for kids to doodle on). These parts are then placed into recyclable cardboard cartons, using cardboard edging and spacers.

    Each box is then sealed with recyclable paper packaging tape. This means our packaging is 100% recyclable in your regular household recycling.

    The big desk that’s built to last.

    90-Second, Poka Yoke Assembly.

    No tools, no screws, no headaches. The flat-pack desk is designed so every-piece is reversible, so you can put it together way you like – no confusing multi-page manuals required!

    Poka Yoke is essentially Japanese for idiot-proof.

    It’s Beautifully THICK.

    Made from 25mm (1 inch) thick sustainably-grown Australian Hoop Pine Plywood, this desk is rock solid and will stay that way for years to come.

    What else do Aussies love about it?

    Designed to do no harm.
    Quite the opposite actually…

    Made locally, from renewable Aussie timber

    Unlike other “Australian” companies, our timber is sustainably grown in South East QLD, turned into timber in Brissy, and lovingly crafted in Melbourne.

    Aussies should go on trips around the world, their furniture shouldn’t.

    The Big Desk


    The Small(ish) Desk

    Our BIG Desk is made from 100% renewable Australian Hoop Pine. It’s grown in southeast QLD, transported to Brisbane to be turned into this gorgeous plywood, then onto Melbourne to be lovingly crafted into a beautiful BIG Desk.

    • 25mm (1 inch) thick Australian Hoop Pine
    • Grown in Southeast QLD
    • No cheap veneers, solid ply

    Certification

    Our supplier holds Chain of Custody under the RW, PEFC and FSC® forest certification schemes.

    Benefits of Plywood

    • Renewable Resource – A natural product from a renewable resource
    • Beautiful – Preferred because of its warmth and natural grain patterns
    • Strength – Unique cross-layered structure makes it kilo for kilo, stronger than steel
    • Efficiency – Uses more of the log than timber
    • Versatility – Can be bent and formed to meet various sizes and shapes
    • Durability – Long-lasting and good resistance to damage

    Orders are shipped within 7 days unless stated otherwise.

    We offer free standard delivery to VIC, SA, NSW, ACT, TAS, QLD. Standard delivery takes 7-14 business days from dispatch.

    Unfortunately, we do not ship to WA or NT at this stage.

    We recommend giving your desk a weekly clean to keep it in top notch condition. This is good for the desk and good for your mental clarity! Simply wipe the desk surface in the direction of the grain with a very slightly damp cloth (no drips)!

    Avoid using spray and wipe type products as these will slowly strip the natural oil and wax finish over time.

    If you spill your coffee or glass of wine (no judgement here), don’t stress. Simply wipe up the spill as soon as possible with a slightly damp cloth, then dry off with a another clean dry cloth (the desk, not yourself).

    Assembling the desk is super simple, but it is heavy, so rope-in whoever is nearby if you can:

    • Stand up one of the legs and slot the vertical brace down into it
    • Repeat with the other leg
    • Slot the shelf into the legs and vertical brace from the back
    • Pop on the desktop and you’re done!

    FAQs

    A lot. Even though it’s big enough, we don’t recommend using it as a dance floor. The desk can safely hold up to 100kg.
