About Omelette Editions
Omelette-Ed is a company that designs, makes, curates, and sells furniture and design objects whose contemporary style is characterized by the simplicity of its lines. Clarity and honesty are the main values of this company and can be seen in all the designs they produce. The aim is to offer a new perspective on a design by taking a close, human and familiar approach to everyday objects.
Created in 2010, it was founded by La Mamba design studio as an outlet for their own designs in the form of a curating company. By taking advantage of the internet and information technologies, they were able to use this as a platform to produce and sell their own designs, such as mirrors, tableware, clocks, and lamps.
Until 2016 these were always small, simple pieces that were easy to transport. Witty and unexpected solutions would come to define the characteristic style of this company. The simplicity of its products is not tantamount to a lack of sophistication but just the opposite. It is a simplicity that results from consideration, from removing everything superfluous and focusing on what is essential, and allows the pieces to belong in any space.

Iratzoki Lizaso is an industrial design studio that was set up in the Basque Country last year. However, its two founders -Jean Louis Iratzoki and Ander Lizaso- have already been collaborating for several years.
Their work encompasses several areas of design: home and office furniture, textiles, lighting, ephemeral architecture, and accessories. Long-lasting elements emerge from this work, which inspires emotion and affection.
Both of them also work in art direction for different brands.
In 2008 Raúl Durá, Ommar Uribe, and Pedro Rivera founded La Mamba studio to carry out product design projects (furniture and lighting) and branding, as well as art direction and consulting for companies. In 2009, just a year after setting up the studio they received their first recognition, the first in a long list, as finalists in the Designer of the Year category of the Elle Decoration awards.
After several years working as designers, they decided to create Omelette-Ed, their own curating company for products designed for domestic use and contract from a human, close, and quality approach.
