Enea finds its origins in Eredu S. Coop, a manufacturer of outdoor furniture which decided in 1984, to develop a totally different range of furniture which was compatable with the office and home market. As a new company its first product range was created with the zeal of a young, informal, colourful product where certain unique pieces had an immediate commercial impact. As Enea has grown it has progressively become a manufacturing company of designer furniture offering a wide range of solutions for the home, office and public areas. It has developed a significant export business with a truly international presence in the countries of the OECD. It’s primary material for all its creations is metal and when this is combined with several different elements originating from rationalism and the logic of use and function, the final result is a product with a direct response to life in modern times.
