Chestnut woven into Zumitz collection by Alki

theface_zumitz

Design atelier and furniture workshop Alki was founded in 1981 in the small village of Itsasu, with the intention of providing jobs in the weakly industrialised region of the northern Basque County. Following their initial aim, today’s creative team is still busy marrying ancestral traditions with modern technologies, to educate locals as well as provide a sustainable, stable income for them. In that exact spirit, their latest collection Zumitz makes use of the basket weaving craft technique typical of the foothill of the Pyrenees. The line was designed by Alki’s creative director Jean Louis Iratzoki and Ander Lizaro, who worked closely together with local artisans.

The starting point, the woven chestnut basket was reinterpreted into a series of home accessories, suitable for furnishing contemporary apartments and hospitality spaces. The collection includes a coffee table, screens, and an updated version of the basket, paying homage to the initial inspiration. The chestnut strips (called zumitzac in the local dialect - hence the name) were treated and tooled by the craftsmen of the village using ancient techniques, then fitted onto a tubular steel frame. The ‘simple ruggedness’ of the pieces carry indeed a sense of aesthetics that is very much compatible with today’s stripped down, forceful, yet serenely minimal home furnishing trends, making the Zumitz set easily applicable in a variety of settings.
