This is a history of tradition and transmission that dates back to 1940s in the village of Sara. At his farm, José Miguel Barandiaran, the famous Basque ethnologist, had a favourite stool that he entrusted to a member of the Iratzoki family, whose trade was woodcraft. It was transmitted and manufactured first by the great-uncle then by the father of the designer. This is how the ordinary stool became an “extraordinary” object for Jean Louis Iratzoki, who reinterpreted this heritage with the Hiruki.
