AKABA | Gorka
Design: Jorge Pensi
AKABA's Gorka chair was designed by Jorge Pensi. The stackable high design chair is customizable and ergonomic and thus suitable for object, office or home. Gorka’s four-legged frame with or without armrests is made of steel tube or high-pressure injected aluminum, both can be powder-coated, polished or chromed. Two shells materials – beech (varnished or laminated) and polyurethane – are available, which can be upholstered with fabric or leather as a design option.
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.
