The Jolly music stand is the result of the collaboration between the Italian furniture company Universal E C srl and the British designer Bim Burton. The creative spirit of the duo gave birth to a product with peculiar characteristics designed to satisfy the needs of musicians.
“The Jolly” is the first handcrafted wood product that combines a lectern and a music stand with a proprietary and modern design. With its proprietary design and modern look, the product is a versatile solution: in fact thanks to the Jolly stand you will have all you need for your music session at hand.
The Universal E C srl lays its roots on the experience of the two founders, the Rossi brothers, who have been working in the furniture sector for decades. Since 1970, the company processes wood and over the years has become the partner for various clients active in the furniture sector.  Today, the company offers a wide range of services from design and industrialization of new products to the delivery of finished products to the customer.  Believing in the potential of “The Jolly”, the company decided to invest in the development of the product working side by side with the designer and musicians.  The result is a functional product with an elegant design that has been registered and will be further developed into a family of products for the music market.  Before presenting it for the first time at the 28th Mondomusica exhibition in Cremona, the product has been tested by professional musicians to refine its characteristics.
Bim Burton has been creating furniture and interiors in London UK since 1980, gathering a grounded understanding of materials and intricate making processes.
His work for a wide variety of clientele has always been joyfully received, responding to their needs and wants often with a playful undertone.
Certainly, the joy of creating is a big motivator in his life.
