Who we are:
We are an Australian owned, furniture design and manufacturer based in Melbourne, Australia. For close to 50 years, we have been providing adaptive steel storage for workplaces and evolving contemporary interiors.
Specialising in locker and storage solutions for flexible, activity-based environments, our purpose is to empower people to work and study more effectively.
From corporate workplaces and government agencies through to the full spectrum of the educational space, Planex has storage solutions that work.
How we do it:
Designed and made in Melbourne, our products are manufactured with state-of-the-art technologies and skilled technicians using sustainable, locally sourced materials from a certified supply chain. We source engineered hardware from our long term ethically aware partners located mainly in Europe. We recently became a member of the UN Global Compact because we embrace in their aims to align our strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
At Planex we understand that everyone’s needs are different and there will never be a one size fits all solution. Planex designs storage systems that can be customized to your environment and needs.
Working with leading designers and architects, our R&D team can develop solutions that benefit clients, provide short lead times and a personal level of service guaranteed by local supply.
Our goals are to achieve a circular model of manufacturing by sourcing new opportunities for our waste powder coat material and currently have achieved solutions for 98% of all our waste material.
We believe your furniture should last so we have committed ourselves to designed-in longevity with the ability to reuse, reconfigure and recycle as needs change. This means creating solutions that are enduring, versatile, elegant, resolved, delightful and original and we like to call this philosophy ‘built-out obsolescence.’
Sustainable, safe and durable, Planex’s award-winning storage solutions are specified by leading architects and designers around the country.
