We see design as a creative activity, a combination between craft and industrial processes. We are lucky to be able to live every day doing what we are passionate about and we would like to transmit our energy exactly as we, at Dhemen, understand it.
One game, one profession
"When I was eight years old, without my parents knowing, I built a boat to cross the Orio estuary. In 2010 we designed an electric boat for smooth, silent sailing. Do you know the difference between these two initiatives? None."

This is our story
We created Dhemen Design in 1995, but our story actually began long before that.
Our story goes all the way back to the 1970s. Since we were little, Igor, Asier and Mikel, we were surrounded by the business world at home. Our grandfather and father had a furniture factory in their hometown of Orio. We, Igor and Mikel, liked inventing, drawing and assembling objects in the workshop, while Asier liked the office work.
Many years later, in 1995 we founded Dhemen Design. What had been a game when we were kids had become our profession. Four years later, Mikel, the youngest brother joined the studio and in 2003 we moved to Orio, where today we carry out our creative work.
We work (and live) here
Despite the big urban areas and our ever more international activity, we continue to be committed to the added value of what is close to us.
We combine our home and our profession through integration with the environment. We use glass as a nexus between the interior space and the exterior. Natural light and marvellous views help us enjoy life while we work.
Curiosity feeds our inspiration, dreams turn into objects, work and leisure intermingle in our daily life, just like the place where we work and the environment we live in.
We are on a small high point between the sea, the estuary and the mountains. A simple, secluded spot with views of the whole world.
