Ovano is a family business creating functional products based around the Volkswagen Transporter, built for work & pleasure. We’re committed to high quality and a clean aesthetic, whilst working towards minimising our impact on the environment.

WORK, WILDERNESS & everything else

Since day one, our conversions had to improve our work vans’ functionality, whilst allowing us to finish on a Friday and head towards the coast for the weekend. The materials and components we use ensure our products can endure the daily abuse of tools, as well as the elements.

We’re well aware that life isn’t all work and leisure, so factoring in the daily commute, shopping trips and day to day family life were all part of our planning. The improved access and increased storage footprint ensure easy stowing of essentials for any task at hand.

All in the details

Our prototyping journey was a slow process due to careful consideration of all details, refining our original handmade prototypes over time, and using the designs in various environments.

Now perfected, our products are CNC cut to ensure a precision fit. All cut edges are hand-sanded, varnished and smoothed. Nearly all fixings include threaded inserts for extra strength and improved reusability.

Sustainability

We designed our products to increase the time spent by the coast, and amongst trees, so we feel responsible for limiting our impact on the environment.

For this reason, it makes sense to us to build our products to last, meaning they shouldn’t need to be updated or discarded.

Wherever possible we’re trying to cut out single-use plastic and pick more environmentally friendly materials & logistics options.

We’re also members of the ‘Surfers Against Sewage 250 club’, and offset our carbon, and plant tree’s through ‘Ecologi’.

The original and most versatile bed, bulkhead and storage unit on the market. The Ovano Switch is a multifunctional conversion system easily installed and removed from your VW Transporter. 

Black phenolic birch ply, stainless steel hinges, threaded inserts and heavy-duty drawer runners make it aesthetically pleasing and durable enough to withstand daily abuse, from loading tools to transporting all your camping essentials.
