Basque In It


UFL have been supplying New Zealanders with contract furniture by Enea for nearly two decades. The reason for our enduring love affair is because we adore everything they do. Hailing from the Basque country; a region of northern Spain, famous for its tough, innovative and cultured people, Enea do things their way. Whether it be language, food, music, fashion or design, the Basque’s create their own rules and Enea’s furniture is no different. Synonymous with utility, and sparse, contemporary design, Enea has collaborated with world-renown designers like Josep Lluscà, Gabriel Teixidó and Lievore Altherr Molina over the years.


2015 has so far been an astounding year for Enea. Not only have they launched a new corporate identity, they also presented a series of stunning new products at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Their new brand boasts a lower-case typography, again embodying the company’s Basque origins as a durable and distinctive character. Reinforcing their values based on geographical location, the firm’s concern for ecology and moving away from traditionalism, the brand is unadorned and with strong shapes.


At Milan Furniture Fair, ENEA presented the Ema chair and their latest developments in the popular Lottus series, focusing on solutions for the Lottus Lounge, Lottus Conference and Lottus Wood, and a new table and bar-leaner, the Lottus AL. The Lottus family continues to evolve and the designs are more refined, classic, and suitable for a myriad of chic environments that require simple but distinctive furniture options.
The colour range of the Ema chair was directly instructed by the primary colours that exist in Enea’s factory. Green, orange, yellow and blue are incorporated into the communicative universe of Enea, inspired by the walls, floors, and the skip bins. The stunning product photography is set in real identity environments, areas where both Ema and the Lottus chair collections naturally fit.
