Sit, stand, flex, scrum… Ypsilon is versatile and dynamic
The new way of working has changed. And it calls for a new approach towards design. Therefore, we entered into a creative collaboration with FOKLAb to develop the ultimate workplace for everyone: Ypsilon.
Ypsilon is not a run-of-the-mill desk. It is a piece of furniture that optimally supports working. To work with sharp focus, you need a comfortable place. A place where you feel good.
A completely flexible and connectible system, designed for working in a sitting or standing position.
The video illustrates the development of this beautiful workstation.
You work individually on Ypsilon, as a duo or in teams. In addition, an endless variety of finishes is available, ensuring that Ypsilon fits into any interior. Ypsilon is not a run-of-the-mill desk, it’s a piece of furniture that optimally supports working.
Ypsilon is designed on the basis of the WELL guidelines.

Ypsilon is designed, developed and made in Holland.
Made in Holland: Vepa distinguishes itself by producing everything in its own facilities in the Netherlands. Our own wood, sheet steel, tubular steel, powder coating, wood spray, upholstery and final assembly departments form a complete production circle within a single company. By producing close to the sales market we keep distances small and CO2 emissions minimal.
LCA: By using independent LCAs (life cycle analysis) we reveal the environmental impact of a product. In product development we can greatly improve later designs by carrying out an LCA in the initial phase. In addition, an LCA also provides insight into the main factors responsible for the environmental damage. We then use these factors as starting points for redesign or as focal points for improvement. The LCAs are carried out in accordance with ISO 14044.
FSC® and PEFC™: Vepa only uses certified wood. The FSC® and PEFC™ labels stand for responsible and sustainable forest management. Responsible forest management meets three criteria: it takes account of the environment, respects social aspects (such as the rights of local communities and forest workers) and is economically viable. Moreover, wood is the number one bio-based resource by nature.
TPAC (Timber Procurement Assessment Committee): Timber to be supplied or timber processed in products to be supplied must comply with the Dutch Procurement Criteria for Timber according to the Socially Responsible Procurement criteria. FSC® and PEFC™ are both systems that have been approved by the Dutch state secretary.
SRP criteria: Vepa complies with the SRP criteria drawn up by the central government. The national criteria for socially responsible procurement (SRP) for office furniture are available via the SRP criteria tool (https://www.mvicriteria.nl/en/webtool).
