Innovative contemporary furniture

who are we ?

Akante was founded by two Contemporary Design enthusiasts : Olivier Vanhaecke and Olivier Tocino.

Both spent time in Asia as expatriates for large French companies. But in 2012, they decided to leave their secure salaried careers and took the plunge into the exciting and challenging entrepreneurial business world. They returned to their roots in Lille in the north of France, home to many famous French businesses. Akante was created in 2012 and won the esteemed entrepreneurs prize “Lauréat de Reseau Entreprendre” in 2013.

Akante is a creator of contemporary furniture which is both functional and accessible.

Akante designs are adapted to the lifestyles of our clients with their clever modularities and choice of materials used.

Akante’s cutting edge website www.akante.com allows both professional and retail customers discover the wide range of products available.

In just a few short years, Akante has become one of Europe’s leading contemporary furniture sources and have displayed at the International Furniture Exposition in Cologne, the Furniture Expo of Brussels, the International “Esprit Meuble” expo in Paris, as well as the UK’s Birmingham Furniture Show.

Akante sells only to professional clients in Furniture and Decoration;
