About us

"Only if there is an aesthetic discussion, if there is an idea of beauty behind the idea of sustainability, will it have come this far to stay."

Iñaki Abalos

We are a team of architects and designers with the aim of creating different spaces. We design the way we think and that, makes us free.

Finding new challenges and new projects that appeals and demand us, is our motivation.
We are constantly looking at how to improve our environment through our projects.
This study is our place in the world and that's what it's all about.

The sámago is the young part of the wood. This definition identifies us, because we are betting that – beyond the years – we will always have a young, restless and transgressive thought that allows us to make a contribution to the world.

Technology is part of our creative process and enhances our identity.

What do we do:

We founded Sámago in 2013 focused on furniture design and its materialization. Over time, we had the need to go out in search of new technologies and materials to broaden the horizons. As a result of our innovating view and way of thinking, today we focus on three specific concepts:

Author’s design

Designs that tell stories, which have the spotlight in the spaces they are placed in and give happiness. The creative process aims to transmit our essence through the product. Many of them have been validated in international competitions and fairs. We believe that this allows us to keep up to date with new trends and live up to the high-quality standards demanded worldwide. A Sámago product is the result of this complex and enriching tour.

Design and creation of spaces

The functionality, aesthetics, lighting, and symbolic character you want to convey are indispensable requirements to define the desired climate. We intervene spaces in order to make all these elements speak the same language. Focused on both the commercial and residential sectors, in Sámago we propose a different look.

Brand Representations

We represent and market products and materials related to design and architecture, we distinguish from other designers in terms of aesthetics, performance and quality.

These are products that we have explored and used in our own creative process and that we make available for other designers, architects, construction companies, decorators and furniture manufacturers to incorporate into their projects.
