Silvia Ceñal

A predilection for color and passion for detail. I begin work on every design I create at my studio in the Basque Country with an open mind and a curious eye. With each piece, I strive to capture its essence and uniqueness through material, texture, and/or color. Starting with simplicity every time, never missing what’s new, fresh.
“Silvia Ceñal Design Studio” is a product design studio located in Donostia. Here, we design furniture, lighting, and accessories, working for companies worldwide, both large and small. Our sole purpose is design, immersing ourselves in new fields.
After studying technical engineering at the University of the Basque Country and going on to study in Groningen (the Netherlands) and Florence (Italy), I completed coursework specializing in furniture design at the IED in Madrid. I then joined Stone Designs, where I was part of the team for five years. In 2015, I founded my own studio in Donostia, where I work with national and international companies of design field. I am also co-founder of the Ohi Design Project, which is dedicated to sharing and designing reinventions of Basque furniture and craftsmanship.
