Laia - Chair

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.

Designed by Jean Louis Iratzoki, the Laia collection is a reflection of Alki's commitment to sustainable development. This is a rational design marked by well-thought- out craftsmanship and a pursuit of timeless furniture that eschews the pitfalls of the fads and crazes of the moment. It features a simple oak frame topped with a plywood shell covered with foam, felt and wool.

Ever since he opened his own workshop in 1998, designer Jean Louis Iratzoki has been committed to the creation of articles impregnated with an emotional value, where the respect for nature, character and restraint give form to a contemporary but simultaneously authentic product. A philosophy which has garnered diverse European awards.

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.
