Plykea is an English startup based in Walthamstow in East London, that have launched a line of birch plywood doors, drawer fronts, cover panels, and worktops that can be easily attached to IKEA’s Metod kitchen cabinets.
The project started when Tim Diacon (a digital product designer) and Adam Vergette (a furniture designer) first had a chance to work together. Tim was renovating his home with a limited budget, and already knowing IKEA’s products, but wishing to have the finished look of birch ply for the kitchen surfaces, decided to try to find a way to combine the two. After failing to find something that was easy, expedient, and affordable, he sought out his friend Adam, who was able to provide Tim with what he needed without making him spend a fortune. After this first collaboration, an idea was born – Plykea.
Plykea now offers two different finishes – wood and formica-faced ply – as well as wooden spacer panels that can be placed between cabinets. Additionally, they offer a range of different handles, from brass pulls to cut-outs in round or rectangular shapes.
Currently, Plykea only provides plywood panels for the Metod model of IKEA kitchen cabinets, but have already received inquiries concerning other models, including the Faktum cabinets and the Pax wardrobe system.
