Heldu is a Basque word indicating adulthood and maturity. Indeed, the series has been built following a traditional technic for joining wood. “The oak and leather finishings echo the realm of a traditional office” say at Iratzoki Lizaso to Archipanic.

Different modules of table surfaces can be joined together to create a variable length platform. Mobile partitions made of leather-covered wood enable workstations to be laid out quickly according to working requirements.

Electric wires run along the axis in a metal cable tray and power sockets are hidden by wooden and leather blocks. A desk lamp and tidy can also be fitted in the cavity. Vertical tabletop partitions complete the collection and enable space to be organised accordingly.

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. The cooperative status was the most suitable to our values which are an essential part of our day-to-day existence.
