AKABA | Branka
Design: Jorge Pensi
Branka by the Spanish producer AKABA is a comfortable, versatile chair which is ideal for office or conference settings. Its classic, simple design incorporates a separate seat and back that is available in polypropylene, stained timber or – alternatively – can be upholstered in a choice of house fabrics or leather. Branka features a four-leg frame, which is finished in either chrome or a range of house powder coat colors. Optional arm rests constructed from polypropylene or injected aluminum, polished or powder-coated to match legs, are available.
After initiating his professional activity in his country of origin, Argentina, Jorge Pensi moves to Spain in 1975. Established in Barcelona since 1977, Jorge Pensi was part of the Grupo Berenguer, collaborating with Alberto Liévore until 1984. In 1985 he founds his own studio, specializing in furniture design, lighting, visual images of his products and assemblies for different types of events. Jorge Pensi’s Design Team is composed of Diego Slemenson, Constanze Schütz and Roman Proubasta. Toni Casares performs the management and administration of the Studio. Additionally, Pensi collaborates with his wife, Carme Casares, in graphic design projects, and from 1996 with Eduardo Campoamor in architecture projects and interior design.
