As my graduation project, I joined the Iratzoki-Lizaso design studio for the design of Zuzulu System.

Concept:
Today, the hybridization of spaces is in full swing. Working, meeting, drinking a cup of coffee, holding an informal meeting… all these activities interweave whether at the office, in a hotel or a public area. The Zuzulu system is the fruit of a long process of reflection driven by the desire to organise space in the most pleasant way. We sought the perfect balance between privacy and co-working so it always feels the right place to be. To achieve this, we analysed uses, positions, heights, traffic flows and thus developed a consistent and contained architecture that fits out the space in a comfortable way. Seven components and a 170cm x 170cm frame form a modular system that enables a multitude of needs to be met. The solid oak panels and fabric-upholstered partitions deliver a touch of warmth and an emotional connection to the work environment that is an intrinsic part of Alki’s DNA. The brand’s different items of furniture integrate perfectly into this universe: office chairs, stools, armchairs and other coffee tables…







Inspiration:
As a deconstruction of the Basque traditional furniture piece Zuzulu or Zizeilu, it adapts an antique practical object to the needs and uses of a contemporary space.
