The Laia High Back Chair is made using a solid oak structure. The rear covering is made from felt with 4 mm thickness. The front covering is vegetable based foam with a choice of leather or fabric to choose from.
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.

Designed by Big Game for Moustache, the Bold Chair is unmistakably bold. The chair is made of two padded and upholstered steel tubes connected together, which recalls the classic metal framed school chair as well as a bent paper clip. Simple and striking, the Bold Chair is great on its own as an occasional chair or as a bold statement when grouped together in multiple colours around a table. Either way, it is sure to be a conversation starter!

The Take a Line for a Walk swivel armchair was designed by Alfredo Haberli for Moroso in 2003. Since then, the armchair has become an icon of modern design. The armchair’s masculine, streamlined shape is reminiscent of a super villain or spaceship commander’s chair, whilst its distinctive wraparound shell references the wings of traditional armchairs, adding an element of protection as well as a dash of mystery.
The design of the armchair was updated in 2012 with the addition of a removable quilted cover which is attached with a colourful zip running all the way along the contours of the armchair. This has the effect of preserving the sleek, defined shape of the armchair on the outside whilst creating an exuberantly feminine and inviting cocoon on the inside.
The Take a Line for a Walk armchair is suitable for both private and public spaces and is available in multiple configurations (with or without the quilt, with integrated footrest and with separate footstool) finishes and fabric choices in addition to the version illustrated here. Please contact us for more information.

The Triangles Rug designed by Bertjan Pot is made with the kilim technique, created with a new spirit incorporating ancient techniques into modern styles using the finest wools, silks, and natural materials.
The design starts with an investigation into the weaving technique of the kilim in order to emphasise the diagonal lines and horizontal features. The distinctive pattern is based on the geometric form of the triangle, reiterated to form a grid of different patterns, from which diamond and hexagonal shapes emerge. The colours present contrasting tones, creating woven kaleidoscopic rugs.
The Triangles rugs are available in 3 patterns: Diamond Apple Green, Diamond Strawberry and Trianglehex Sweet Green. They work well in traditional and contemporary settings and are appropriate for use in private and public spaces.
