Raw Studios is much rawer than expected

RAW Studios' highly adaptable Epik plywood furniture leg componentEarlier this year Peet was given the opportunity to talk about his journey with Raw Studios at the Pretoria Institute for Architects’ Ideas Conference.

With 13 years in the making, multiple ranges and 100’s of products available, 45 minutes was just too short to give a complete picture, so we made a short video to introduce Raw Studios and showcase one of our cornerstone products. We put the same thought and care into the making of the video as we do with anything else so please have a look at it here:

The highly adaptable Epik leg component was developed and is now used in over 50 of our product iterations by simply adjusting the length and width of the leg. This design assures that we provide a shorter lead time, create less waste and speed up the installation process.

“They know best” they say.

Who are “they”?

We all know “they”… It’s that “guy” who always knows all the facts about Cape Town’s weather, the best diet to follow, the latest assets to invest in or what Sally really did last December.

That clears it up right? Yeah, umm, not really.

Well, that is exactly why we decided to chat to They and clear up the confusion once and for all.

Turns out the real They is a company that focuses on directing music videos, shorts and ads for companies, people and artists who appreciate great story telling.

Not having met They before we were quite curious of how a company like theirs would operate. When master storytellers, Alan and Darren, approached us just before they relocated office, Alan mentioned They (pun intended) were looking for a solution that would “cancel out the bad side of an open plan layout, still remain inviting but offer the focused privacy needed for many of their tasks”. We didn’t hesitate to assist in the project, because we knew we were working with likeminded guys who were ready to change things a little.

Wall Space™, along with our Epik™ furniture, were the solutions that jumped to mind that ticked all the boxes of their new workplace requirements.

Take a look at the video below to get some more insight into the real They and how Raw ensured their new offices balance and boost their everyday tasks.

Ekstend Basik to Tall: all new affordable storage!

New Ekstend Basik to Tall: Office Storage Solutions Desk Furniture

There’s no need to opt for the sad low quality grey options on the market any longer. Our three new professional storage options are not trying to reinvent the storage landscape, but they do match our look and feel perfectly, and they are so much more affordable.

We don’t have to strategically position our chairs to the side, blocking views of our pedestals hoping visitors won’t notice our stylistic “faux pas” anymore. #notourproudestmoment

We present to you Raw Studios’ latest storage options ready to keep desks tidy with real style and still be easy on the pocket:

1. Basik Stor

This small compact under-desk storage covers the daily basics. Two drawers with solid birch ply fronts and a tasteful white melamine box frame on glides will keep your desk space good-looking and neat at the same time.

2. Ekstend Stor

Specifically designed to give that extra work surface space with the added benefit of storage below, this unit of 740mm desk height, comes with 4 drawers with solid birch plywood fronts and a neat white melamine bodice. One of its cool quirks is the super functional top stationery drawer.

This is the big brother of the Basik and Ekstend stor. Reaching above the desk to provide screened privacy, the unit has a main compartment that is drawn out to reveal two useful drawers with solid birch ply fronts and shelves offering ample storage space.
