set for the salone del mobileiratzoki lizaso‘s collection for alki is composed of a sofa system, a series of pouffes and a set of coffee tables. rounded shapes are the common denominator of these objects, since the designer duo aimed for geometric simplicity to avoid any sense of sophistication. the egon coffee tables evoke the traditional typology of tables where the edges are covered in a metal plate, usually full of ornaments. this basic architecture has been reinterpreted using hand forged iron instead. as a result, imperfect surfaces contrast with the otherwise modernist and geometric shapes of the three coffee tables.
