Designed by renowned designer Jorge Pensi, the ALTEA seating collection arises from the search for a family of seats that can have a broad spectrum of uses in both professional and domestic environments. This iconic family, originates from the combination of comfortable seat bodies, available in three heights, with diverse bases of different functionality. The wide choice of versions and finishes together with the essential and appealing design of the seats, allow a broad spectrum of use in all kinds of spaces.
Jorge Pensi Design Studio was set up in 1984. Since then the studio has consolidated its position as a global point of reference for contemporary design. Its minimalist and expressive designs have received numerous prizes and awards. Some of its first products, such as the Toledo chair or the Regina lamp, have since become Spanish design icons renowned worldwide. In 1997, Jorge Pensi was awarded the National Design Prize by the Ministry of Industry and Energy and the BCD Foundation for outstanding professional achievement. If there is one thing which defines Jorge Pensi Design Studio’s products, it is their timelessness. They constantly seek a balance between poetry and realism, material and space, abstraction and emotion. The aim is to create as many sensations as possible with as few resources as possible, challenging the usual logic in order to establish whether or not it is possible to create something new.
