About Enea

Inspired by life, made by enea

At Enea, we find inspiration in every aspect of daily life when we design and create our premium furniture. Our beautiful, strong, and sustainable pieces travel to all corners of the globe from our factory in the Basque Country, to keep you company while you are eating, chatting, or working. While you are waiting, sharing, or relaxing.


From 1984

Enea has been part of the history of Spanish design since the 1980s. The brand was born in 1984 in the Goierri area (Gipuzkoa) with the clear mission of designing and manufacturing furniture inspired by people’s lives. In fact, the Basque word enea can be translated as “the house of” and is a common word ending that is used in the names of farmhouses and family houses across the Basque Country.

We are a cooperative

Together is better

Enea represents a unique milestone in Spanish design, as it was created –and continues to work– as a cooperative. This means that many of the staff members are also the owners of the project. Cooperation is part of our DNA; and constant cooperation is fundamental in the way we work with designers, consultants, distributors, and architects to progress from a base of commitment with a set of shared values. Enea is part of the Mondragon Corporation, which is one of the largest industrial groups in Spain.

Naturally sustainable

Sustainability is a non-negotiable requirement in the briefing of any new design. Since our very beginning, we have understood sustainability in a global way. And not only through investigation and research so we can use more natural or recyclable materials, but also from the viewpoint of durability, robustness, and quality. Because what’s more sustainable than something that lasts for 20 years instead of 5? At Enea, whilst we acknowledge that we still have a long way to go, we are constantly striving to find more sustainable and responsible solutions that provide the world with alternatives to improve and care for it.

Design with character

A personal point of view

We believe that design needs to go hand in hand with authenticity. That is why we have always wanted to give our personal vision to the world of design. Not only for you to get a little closer to the Basque Country through our chairs, tables, stools…, or for the Basque Country to be ever more present in the world; but because we believe that uniqueness, a different way of looking at things, and a distinctive character are all necessary values for what we call iconicity.
