Design Manifesto for Butek Enterprises

Style – Clean, practical, functional with the look of sophistication through the appropriate combination of form and function.

Inspired by German ‘Bauhaus’ informed by Swedish & Danish love of timber and clean lines, German practicality and efficiency.

Striving to forge an Australian identity through the use of Australian timbers – sustainably grown and milled, or foraged and recycled, together with the use of Australian motifs and local environmental inspiration.

Seeking elegance through innovative joining, shaping and finishing.
