Annette and Anselm Schaugg, Founders of GUAXS


At GUAXS we try to develop sculptural objects, that change the atmosphere of a room and
have an effect on the people around them. We draw our inspiration from forms of nature
and cultural artefacts, always influenced by personal experience gathered on travels,
intuition and close observation. Our objects are made of authentic and sustainable materials, manufactured by hand following practical knowledge and handicraft techniques developed
over centuries. Each piece shows the variable traces of human work on its surface, creating interplay between sculptural form and texture. More specifically, the design of our glass objects combines these aspects with a nuanced and strong color impression, leading to a smooth and natural appearance. This allows them to integrate well into any architecture, while remaining something special and magic at the same time.
