PRESS (English / Español):

Ilia is a young furniture and homeware brand based in Mexico influenced by international design, focused on elevating small rituals through everyday objects emphasizing their materiality and sculpture.


Strongly influenced by the rural Basque Country (where Pedro Arturo lived in 2013), its landscape and architecture, Leku is a table designed to enjoy and elevate mundane rituals thanks to its sculptural and elegant  silhouette nodding also to timeless modernist design.


Leku means «place» in Euskera, the language of Euskal Herria (Basque Country), home of iconic artists Jorge Oteiza and Eduardo Chillida. A piece of furniture inspired by the countryside, visually lightened thanks to angled details creating windows to see through its structure. Leku’s intention is to set the place to nurture routine and foster contemplation.


The four legs are assembled into a central node, then crossing through the deck exposing the heartwood on the edges of the tenon subtly contrasting in the main surface.
