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.

KAI living room collection, TREKU

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.

LAUKI collection, modular design for young, casual spaces

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.

LAUKI sideabord, customize your style!


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.

Great functionality in your living space: the 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 matches perfectly wood.
