In Basque, “bat” is the beginning, the first number. Design, style and functionality are… one. They're Bat. But Bat also reflects the concept of "unity". Because at Akaba we unite to work, to design, create and dream.  

Taking that idea as our basis, we develop this desk which unites balanced design with style and impressive functionality. Everything has a reason to be and flows in the same direction. Each of us have our space, but united we create a space for everyone.
