Arko Furniture (formerly UTE) designs and manufactures contemporary furniture and furnishings for the new “vertical lifestyle”. Whether it’s bringing the outdoors in with our vertical gardens, or taking the indoors out with our range of tables and stools, Arko furniture is designed for the most beautiful of interiors, and made to withstand the full force of our Australian climate.

Flexible, adaptable and beautiful, so you can enjoy our furniture wherever you decide. 

Australia is famous for its outdoor lifestyle and at Arko we've shifted our focus to embrace this characteristic with careful consideration for the changing nature of modern spaces. Terraces, outdoor rooms and balconies are where our products feel most at home, and with the rise of the “outdoor room”, we understand that our clients are spending more of their relaxation and leisure time in their outdoor spaces at all times of the day, year-round.

Our products are widely utilised in corporate settings such as break out rooms, offices and retail spaces, creating natural and contemporary environments fostering creativity and valuable time away from the desk for meetings and communication.

Australian Designed and made for Australian conditions, all of our products are protected by IP law that ensures you are buying a unique and exclusive product. 

Our Story

Arko was launched in 2007 by designer Kain Lucas and is based in Melbourne Australia. Our philosophy has formed the brand’s tagline ‘Design that works’, built on our belief that the beauty of any product lies in its functionality. If a product is well designed for its intended purpose, it will possess a natural and inherent beauty as a result. 

Over the years we have supplied our products to some of the world’s finest companies including Bentley Motors, STIHL, Futurebrand, Dun & Bradstreet to name just a few. We have established a network of manufacturers from around Australia capable of producing large-scale runs of high quality products in a wide range of materials, and we are well equipped to handle your job no matter how big or small.
