Grown locally, from renewable Aussie timber

Our Hoop Pine timber is sustainably grown in South East QLD, turned into timber in Brissy, and lovingly crafted in Melbourne.

Hoop Pine (Araucaria cunninghamii) is a native Australian species sustainable grown in plantations throughout north NSW and south QLD. It’s fast growing and carefully managed to ensure supply for decades to come.

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

Carbon-Neutral Delivery

In Australia, the transport sector accounts for approximately 18% (102 million tonnes in 2018) of our total greenhouse gas emissions. This includes private vehicles, public transport and freight.

These numbers are high enough and we don't want to add to it, which is why through our delivery partner and the Carbon Reduction Institute, all our deliveries are 100% carbon offset.

What does our packaging look like?

Our packaging is made in Australia from a mix of recycled consumer waste, and virgin material. We don’t use any plastic in our packaging (or our products), which means it can all be recycled.

Cardboard Carton

Our corrugated cardboard supplier is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council and uses a mix of recycled consumer waste and virgin material.

Cardboard Spacers

Inside the box we have some honeycomb-core cardboard spacers which hold the parts in place during transport so your desk arrives safely.

Paper Tape

We use kraft paper tape and recycling compatible adhesive (RCA) which means the tape is recyclable and compostable after use!

Caring for Medium Desk Shelf

Whilst our desks are designed and built to be strong, they have a tender side to them as well, so to keep your Ecosium desk top looking beautiful for as long as possible, follow the care instructions below.

Clean with a moist cloth

The chemicals in spray and wipe products will slowly remove the natural wax and oil finish. Instead, simply use a slightly moistened (with water) cloth to remove any dirt or stains. Once a week is a great habit – for you and the desk!

Use a coaster

The heat and moisture from food or drinks may leave a ring mark on the natural finish, so make sure to always use a coaster or place mat.

Nothing scratchy

Don’t drop your keys or drag anything heavy over the desktop. This can create scratches or dents in the surface. Enjoy your desk, but be kind to it too.

Assembling Medium Desk Shelf

Make a bit of space for your new desk before you get started. We recommend assembling the desk in-place where it will live.
Grab a leg, they’re both the same. Slide the brace downwards into the top slot at the back of the leg. Repeat with the other leg.

Brace the Legs

Grab a leg (they’re both the same). Slide the brace downwards into the top slot at the back of the leg. Repeat with the other leg.
Slide the shelf in from the back. You may need to slightly lift or push the shelf so the tenons (sticky-outy-bits) align with the mortises (the-inny-bits).

Slide in the Shelf

Slide the shelf in from the back. You may need to slightly lift or push the shelf so the tenons (sticky-outy-bits) align with the mortises (the-inny-bits).
Carefully place the top, on top. Have a look under one side. Move the top around so the mortices align with the tenons. Check the other side and do the same. You may need to move the legs slightly so it all lines up. Once aligned, push the top down firmly to secure it in place.

Top it off.

How to get the right height for your monitor stand:

It's generally recommended that your eye level should be about 5cm from
the top of your monitor, but it's important to figure out what’s right for you.
