After having worked together for several years, Jean Louis Iratzoki and Ander Lizaso have teamed up to create Iratzoki Lizaso, a multi disciplinary design studio that aims to design from the Basque Country. Their collaboration with ALKI is very long standing.
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 was named Alki which means “chair” in Basque, with the aim of creating jobs in a weakly industrialised region. The cooperative status was the most suitable to our values which are an essential part of our day-to-day existence. Combining ancestral tradition and modern technology, Alki now offers conviviality in a more contemporary style. At Alki, oak, the most noble of woods, is more than a raw material. It is a symbol of our deep commitment to guiding the company towards rational and sustainable development. At Alki's core lies an abundance of skill and know- how that blurs the boundaries between the artisanal and the industrial.
