Guïana is a Slovenian brand, specialized in designing wooden furniture. It was founded by product designer Luka Rugelj. Our main goal is to design high-quality products with minimalistic form and with great emphasis on details, whereby we bring together the knowledge of present-day design trends and long-term know-how of wood craftsmanship.
Luka Rugelj studied product design at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (ALUO) in Ljubljana. After graduation, he has founded a brand Guïana, where he combined his passions for architectural modernism, japanese arts and designing unique furniture pieces. He not only expands his design thinking with his sculptural and model making skills, but also on numerous journeys around the world.
Made in Slovenia
If we were to describe countries of the world with colours, Slovenia would be represented by green. Almost 60 percent of its land is covered with forests, where you can find more than 70 different sorts of trees. Diversity of tree species and the abundance of wood are two main cornerstones of rich wood processing tradition in Slovenia. Therefore we merged our long-term woodworking experience with innovative design thinking to create our unique products.
