Benga Bits is an Australian manufacturer of classic furniture with a modern and personal touch. Functional, practical and contemporary flat packed CNC router plywood cut pieces in a choice of clear coated and coloured finish made from responsibility sourced plywood. Delivered and ready to assemble.
Benga Bits was born of the Covid-19 pandemic. During these times Benga Designs the parent company experienced a major downturn from retailers and franchisees. To remain agile in challenging times and to utilise the resources at hand, keeping staff in jobs and equipment operating at full capacity, the idea of Benga Bits flat pack contemporary furniture evolved.
A submission for a Queensland Government Grant was successful allowing Benga Bits the opportunity to develop this new online store featuring responsibly sourced Plywood Furniture. Benga Designs had to diversify and the manufacture of plywood furniture seemed the logical progression from sign manufacturing where staff skills, CNC router equipment, team creativity and warehouse facilities could be fully utilised. However, as this thought required substantial funding to develop the online store, it was only possible due to the generous government grant to assist with all the marketing costs associated with this plan.
To give back, we will be donating $10.00 from every purchase to our two preferred charities OzHarvest and Orange Sky divided equally. OzHarvest specialise in food rescue. They prevent food waste (of perfectly good food) going to landfill and redirect this to food hampers or cooked meals to vulnerable communities via established community channels. Orange Sky operates a regular mobile laundry and shower service via custom built vans. The focus is on creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who feel disconnected from the community to feel respected and understood. We are so appreciative of the financial assistance provided by the government grant that this is the least we can do to give back to these wonderful not for profit organisations.
The range is vast with over 50 items available across a collection of office furniture including desks, benches, café tables and chairs plus quirky conversation bits and pieces. Each ply wood piece is perfectly cut, on demand for a customer to build. We use responsibly sourced plywood and the CNC layouts are designed for the best material economy ensuring minimal waste.
All our plywood is verified as responsibly sourced. These items are machined on demand, delivered and ready to assemble. Flat packed furniture was never this easy. Most are without screws, barrel bolts (inline and perpendicular) or tacks. These easily constructed pieces slide together. To make your job a little easier a rubber mallet can be used but is not usually necessary.
Choose from the natural layered feature of responsibly sourced plywood clear coated for durability or choose a pre-painted option. The results are clean, modern and quirky contemporary pieces. The easy construction process makes Benga Bits furniture a breeze for every DIY furniture warrior.
In general we choose plywood as it’s known for high uniform strength. It’s appearance features a visible wood grain and multi-layer effect, leaving a pleasing natural appearance. Plywood allows ease of fabrication when looking to achieve curved surfaces, a feature often used in today’s modern architectural design and contemporary furniture and fittings. The desired shapes can be readily fabricated in plywood construction, utilising ‘slot together’ furniture construction. At Benga Bits, flat packed furniture and conversational bits and pieces dominate the range. The team are proud to present a wide range of responsibly sourced plywood products.
