LAUKI by Ibon Arrizabalaga. It is made up of multiple boxes that can be arranged in endless configurations: aligned on the floor, piled up or wall-mounted. Pieces are available in a wide range of sizes, finishes and functions (drawers, doors, open modules, etc.) that makes it possible to create endless configurations.

This way, with just a few different modules, you can design a solution for an entrance hall or any other room in the house. And by putting a larger number of them together, you can create a TV stand, a sideboard or even a filing cabinet for the office.

LAUKI sideboards

Although visually simple, the design includes some complicated features, such as the discreet half-centimetre frame that surrounds each box incorporating the push-to-open mechanism.

AURA by Angel Martí & Enrique Delamo. AURA has been conceived as a collection of sideboards and furniture for stylish living and dining rooms and entrance halls. Its retro design is inspired by the Nordic design culture, which is well-known for subtly combining tradition, natural textures and large doses of modernity.

The result: a collection full of memories that gives off a very modern aura. The metal and wood legs have been specifically designed to enhance the retro and timeless look.

AURA TV stand

The finish is very important: walnut and oak wood with a hyper-natural finish can be combined with a range of lacquers in neutral and earth tones that match perfectly wood.
