Motion and Emotion


Same spirit, new feel We are the same people who started Akaba in 1986 with more passion than means. The very same ones who, with a design-centric approach made it possible for our products to travel from the Basque coast to the far reaches of the globe. In the 1990s, we refined our products, making them more comfortable and inviting. As a result, you find our products used in community and public buildings as well as in the largest corporations in the world. We remain true to the same spirit of great design, but with a contemporary feeling, embodied with personality and an eye towards satisfying specific needs for our customers. This catalogue pays homage to our respect for the past, our interpretation of the present and how we imagine the future to be. We proudly present the our new collection: Same motion, new emotions.

Misma esencia, nuevos matices M.O.R.sillón, JAVIER MARISCAL & PEPE CORTES Defined by two very simple forms that play against one another, M.O.R.sillón is a very inviting piece that makes it a perfect soft seating solution for public areas. Designed by Javier Mariscal and Pepe Cortés in 1986, M.O.R.sillón was one of Akaba´s first designs to receive international recognition. We are proud to share this piece with you as AKABA rediscovers its heritage and one of the avant-garde pieces that offer both, universal appeal and that respond nicely to the needs of the market today.

Somos los mismos que en 1986 iniciaron el proyecto con más ilusión que medios. Los mismos que con una apuesta decidida por el diseño, lograron que nuestros productos partieran de la costa vasca hasta los lugares más sorprendentes del mundo. En los 90 humanizamos nuestros productos haciéndolos más accesibles. Por eso podemos encontrarlos en numerosas colectividades. Hoy, seguimos manteniendo la misma esencia, pero con un aire renovado, y con diseños y proyectos más personalizados. Este catálogo recoge nuestro respeto al pasado, nuestra interpretación del presente y un acercamiento a cómo imaginamos el futuro. Te presentamos the new collection: Same motion, new emotions.


Xoko Iratzoki Lizaso Collaborative working environments have been a topic of conversation for a few years now. Xoko is a unique seating program addressing this environment. The program was inspired by the idea that a corner, from an architectural point of view, can be an interesting and functional form. Xoko builds its program around an upholstered stool, generous in dimensions, which because of its shape, allows the user several sitting positions as well as the ability to join them in different compositions. The line has three versions of bases, stemming from different applications of use. The first being a versatile stool with four metal legs, which facilitate creating different compositions. The second, is a height adjustable central leg stool, which offers adaptability for the individual user. The third, is a lower version with wheels and an integrated pivoting table designed for environments where mobility and reconfiguration is important, like educational or team venues. It is available in a wide range of upholstery options and a range of standard finishes.

Gune Iratzoki Lizaso

Elevating the interaction between user and product, Gune is designed to expand the function of a simple form of a table top by doubling the top to allow for a lean surface when using the table. This feature works nicely in collaborative working environments where a user can store documents, tablets or phones. It also works nicely in hospitality or corporate casual areas where users can place valuables and small to medium sized items while they are socializing. The tables come with the option of a simple column as well as an elongated version with two columns for larger surfaces. To broaden the offering, the table is also available in stool, chair and lounge heights with wood or melamine tops.

Aia Isaac Piñeiro Inspired by the Japanese sense of simplicity and harmony, Aia is designed to offer a connection between the human habitat and the natural world.

Nora Miguel Ángel Ciganda Integrating classic and contemporary design, Nora is designed to be discreet, elegant and the timeless protagonist, simultaneously. This is born out by the unique combination of birch plywood, painted metal and fabric, which offers tension in the piece without being obtrusive. It also offers a subtle “nod” to craftsmanship in its connections and detailing. It is available in a wide range of upholstery options and a range of standard finishes. The sit of the chair is generous and comfortable. It offers the warmth of wood where the body comes in contact with the chair and the strength and durability of metal where the chair might come in contact with mechanical equipment.
