TREKU – Now!Design à vivre (Hall 7) Stand B138/C137
Excellent quality & design. A 70-year tradition of excellence characterizes the Spanish furniture manufacturer TREKU. Founded in 1947 in the Basque Country, the company has gained an international reputation for high quality and customizable living room and bedroom furniture. Ranges, which now include tables, wardrobes, cabinets and chairs for offices, living and dining areas, are constantly expanded to keep up with new trends. Attention to detail is paid throughout the entire design process, with a special care given to wood selection and treatment – optimal color, grain, and smoothness set a perfect foundation for TREKU’s lacquer finishes.
The LAUKI and AURA collections have been updated with the introduction of new finishes, legs and configuration possibilities.
LAUKI collection 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.
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 collection 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.
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 matches perfectly wood.

FRAME table by Ramón Esteve NEW ITEM!

The FRAME table, available in different heights and sizes, is a new addition that introduces also a new line of aluminum structures, perfect to be used in places like hotels, restaurants or cafes.
The lightness of the pieces along with the stackability of chairs and armchairs make the space configuration easier. The sun chaise, with reclining backrest, integrates wheels to make mobility easier.
FAZ stool by Ramón Esteve NEW ITEM!
Inspired to the mineral world, the multifaceted surface of the FAZ items plays with light, creating intriguing shadow effects. The collection encompasses sectional sofas, lounge chairs, planters, lamps, rugs, tables, sun loungers and counters.
Recently, the FAZ collection has been extended to include a bar and counter height stools with a comfortable backrest to meet the needs of users in indoor and outdoor areas, both in hospitality and residential environments.
Available with and without armrests, the seat lies on a sleek powder coated stainless steel structure.
WALL STREET chair by Eugeni Quitllet
Urban-nature is the theme behind the Wall Street chair. Combining technology and sensuality, Wall Street encourages people to lounge, think and chat. A unique chair that is defined by light and elegant shapes.
Made of gas air-moulded polypropylene injected with fiberglass, WALL STREET is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and is available in white, black, bronze, red and ecru to meet different décor styles.
AFRICA stool by Eugeni Quitllet NEW ITEM!
AFRICA collection is growing! After the success of the AFRICA chair, VONDOM has taken it qualities to a higher level, launching the stool version for bars and outdoor spaces.
The chair’s backrest has become smaller and the legs longer, but the stool still preserves all the charm and clean aesthetic of the original design. It is available in two heights and in a choice of colours to adapt to every need. Made of gas air molding injected polypropylene with fiber glass. Stackable.
BROOKLYN stool by Eugeni Quitllet
Its stylish urban contemporary design, with straight lines and curves that recall the New York City bridge, is very fascinating and recognizable.
Made of polypropylene with fiber glass, it is available in multiple finishes and in 2 sizes for indoor and outdoor use.
Other seating proposals include the DELTA chair, a creation by Jorge Pensi Design Studio that strikes the balance between realism and surrealism, matter and antimatter, abstract and emotions. In the same vein of emotional design, the SABINAS chair, designed by Javier Mariscal, is inspired by organic shapes, recalling the feminine silhouette as well as sinuous desert landscapes.
