our team

Furnware is part of the family-owned Resero Group, employing over 200 people around the world. We design and build most of our furniture at our base in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, alongside our manufacturing and assembly factory in Sydney, with dedicated teams working from offices in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore, supporting our customers in every region.
 

our customers

We have a saying at Furnware, 'it's all about the kids', and we consider every student in every one of our over 4,000 schools in more than 30 countries, our most important customers. From kindergarten to tertiary, small schools to large schools, rural to urban, the furniture we design and the spaces we create are so students have the space to be their very best, while enhancing learning for everyone. 

how we work

We understand every school is unique and our team of experts work hand in hand with schools to support their vision for teaching and learning with quality, innovation and genuine care. Every classroom and learning space we create is designed to meet each school's specific ambitions, with furniture that’s been carefully considered to help support the best learning outcomes.

Giving back

We’re totally committed to investing in education, sponsoring over 100 principal and business managers associations and conferences to deliver the best networking and training to professionals around the world.

World-class design – it’s what we do

At Furnware, we research, design, and build school furniture that’s flexible, mobile and multipurpose. Most of all, it's functional and performs in the classroom improving student comfort and concentration. We investigated how learning could be improved, measuring 20,000 students, which led to the development of the Bodyfurn Sled Chair and size system supporting the learner.

Bodyfurn’s ground-breaking, dynamic design, with its independently pivoting seat, was awarded a Designers institute of NZ award. We continue to push design innovation in everything we create, with our Spacemakers winning a Bronze medal at the 2018 NZ Best Design Awards.

Committed to quality – it’s how we do it

We stand behind everything we make and are dedicated to creating quality products, made from the very best materials. With over 570 years' experience between them, our highly skilled team pride themselves on their quality standards, ensuring your furniture is built to last.

Our trusted delivery partners continue our commitment to outstanding customer service, ensuring your furniture arrives fully assembled, with classroom set-up according to plan, ready for immediate use. Furnware is invested in aligning ourselves with industry best practice and is in the process of achieving ISO9001 Quality Management System and ISO14001 Environmental Management System accreditation.

“Furnware were incredibly supportive, helping us to achieve our goals, finding solutions within budget and getting things here on time. The furniture is just phenomenal, with fantastic warranties, so I've got peace of mind that it’s going to last and stand the test of time.”

Neil Smith - former principal at Australian International School, Singapore
