Ondarreta is one of the three beaches that wash the bay in the city of San Sebastián. A beach that holds the roots of a woodworking shop that would later become the beginning of a family history dedicated to the design and manufacture of tables, chairs... There, in the heart of the Basque Country, was born the passion for working with wood, for turning it into something new, giving it a shape and a name. This led, in 1975, and only a few kilometres away, to the foundation of Ondarreta; tables and chairs.
"Character, tenacity to grow, to remain in place and to reinvent ourselves. Not unlike the Cantabrian Sea, our personality is tenacious. Strong and perseverant. The place where we grew up has gifted us with a noble, hard-working and fighting character that helps us to reinvent ourselves and to continue forging ahead day after day. Our surroundings give us our own way of understanding design. The colour of our land, the light...
Because we are convinced that with our everyday work and effort, we can help to create a society that understands good design. A good design we strive to conceive alongside the emerging and celebrated designers who join us in addressing our projects."
