Maram [mah-rum] means wood and we came about because we wanted a better desk, one that balanced form and function.
We're small team of 4 who make furniture designed for modern needs, taking into consideration the changing ways in which we each use our furniture. Made from sustainably sourced hardwoods and hand finished in natural oils, we craft every piece with the patience required to bring brilliance out of wood from our Melbourne workshop.
Here is how we began
We wanted a better way to deal with the cable clutter around our desks and couldn't find a desk that ticked all the boxes so we set out to create our own.
With a background in engineering, love for woodworking and design, and heaps of persistence, Mesa 57 came to be... well at least the first prototype.
2 years later we made a beautifully crafted, mid-century modern, solid wood desk. A desk designed for the devices we use on them, managing cables, without compromising materials and design. The Desk. Plugged In.
Our principles for our furniture are simple.
Updated - We create furniture for humans and their changing environments.
Make it last, in design and form - Beauty never fades in hardwood
Use sustainable materials - The lumber we use is 100% sourced from regrowth forests primarily in Victoria, Australia. Learn more about how we create consciously.
Minimise production waste - Off-cuts get their 2nd chances.
October, 2019 we launched and started making desks out of our garage. We soon outgrew the house and in January 2022 moved to our workshop and showroom in Braeside, Melbourne.
