Zutik is a wall-mounted system made by the French studio Alki in order to be useful for storing and organizing personal belongings. The system relies on the existence of a massive oak beam around which various shelves and hooks for hanging can be arranged. Zutik can be reconfigured both in length and composition so it can adapt easily to spaces of different sizes and different backgrounds. It continually changes its shape and colours. The beam size can vary from a length of 1 metre up to 3 metres, and the main accessories are shelves, hooks, wooden pockets, acoustic panels and a mirror. These elements come in a delicate and trendy pastel colours palette, and they are easily combinable among each other.
Alki´s path started in 1981 in a small village in the northern Basque Country, in Itsasu. In a time of economic difficulties a group of five friends founded a small chair factory that we named Alki “which means chair in Basque” with the aim of creating jobs in a weakly industrialised region. The cooperative status was the most suitable to our values which are an essential part of our day-to-day existence
Combining ancestral tradition and modern technology, Alki now offers conviviality in a more contemporary style.
