System of multifunctional desks in different sizes, where the aluminium extrusion is the star material. Its square legs, its joints and horizontal profiles make this the ideal base for different types of desktop. The result is sober, elegant and visibly lightweight, yet tremendously resistant.

The system makes it very easy to add a variety of accessories, such as joints between desks, guides or braked castors, modesty panels or computer stands. An optional variety of electrical kits are also available.

Dhemen Design

In 1995, Igor and Asier founded Dhemen Design. What had begun as a game when they were children had become their profession. Four years later, Mikel, the youngest brother, joined them in the studio. In the year 2003, Dhemen moved to Orio, a privileged location between the sea, the bay and the mountains, where the Esnal brothers and their team carry out their creative activities.

They share their professional activity and working on product research with Inasmet, the San Sebastian based technology centre.
