Alki - ancestral tradition and modern technology

Alki manufactures simple, but extremely elegant furniture. They are specialising in chairs, stools and dining tables. We quite liked their stools collection, as usually it is not so easy to find a good looking bar stool :)


Alki´s path started in 1981 in a small village in the northern Basque Country, in Itsasu. In a time of economic difficulties a group of five friends founded a small chair factory that we named Alki   "which means chair in Basque"  with the aim of creating jobs in a weakly industrialised region. 

They say: "THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL IN THE ESSENTIAL"

"Our approach to design is a simple one. For us, design isn't a disguise, but rather the continuous pursuit of purification. The relationship between a person and an object, the resonance of a piece, the pleasure that one gets from using it... that's what matters to us."
