ButterPly is designed by UPSOP, an award-winning design studio found by two young architects from Hong Kong. It is comprised of passionate, innovative and energetic architects and product designers. Their unconventional manufacture-driven design approach took cost into consideration right at the beginning, making ButterPly both attractive and affordable.

 

 

Risks and challenges

The production of Butterply Desk is a highly intense CNC fabrication, machine polishing and labor finishing process. With the help of a promising manufacturer from China, we will be able to complete production in 60days once the campaign ends and the project being funded successfully.

Nevertheless, our project is also dependent on the supply of high quality Birch plywood while it normally takes around 1 week to deliver for bulk orders more than 100pcs.

In addition, some of our wood milling bits are tailor made and machined according to our desks' edge curvatures. Those bits would also take us 1-2 weeks for production.

Therefore the supply of raw material and making of cutting tools would be 2 key depending factors for meeting our delivery schedule. We will do our best to deliver Butterply desks as stated in high quality and good appearance and we want the product to arrive at your doorstep definitely before Christmas.

August 12th - Kickstarter Campaign Starts

September 17th to End of September - Order of Raw Material(Plywood) and Tooling Fabrication
