GUAXS glass is processed in small, exclusive factories which are specialised in producing small editions for international artists and designers. The craftsmen usually work as a team. In order to be successful, the teams
need a high degree of skill and experience, but also coordination and physical strength.

After a metal form has been prepared in several different stages, the process of blowing the glass can begin.
At the start, each worker uses a blow pipe to collect a certain amount of glass – depending on the size of the object – out of the kiln. Further preparatory steps follow before the glassblower blows the hot substance into the metal form. Due to the sophisticated and characteristic forms that are the GUAXS trademark, this task can only
be performed by qualified craftsmen. When the work piece has gradually cooled down after a few days, the different phases of cutting and polishing ensue. In several complex and meticulous steps the glass surface is worked on and finished by hand.

Thus the object receives its individual structure and its distinctive, unique GUAXS character. Every single form is
a true masterpiece of craftsmanship.

GLASS

For many years our GUAXS metal objects have been produced in close cooperation with the same metal manufacturer, thereby guaranteeing the realisation of our particular forms by elaborate manufacturing processes.
A variety of different metals and metal combinations are used, the most important ones being aluminium, brass or nickel plated brass. In order to form the materials, several metal plates are hammered by hand into a negative steel mould. In yet another working process the single sheets are then combined by a soldering process and the joints are smoothed down. Finally, the metal object is polished and refined.

GUAXS lamps are produced in small, exclusive factories which are specialised in producing small editions for international artists and designers. Both the glass base and the fabric shade are made with exquisite craftsmanship.

LAMPS

GUAXS wood objects are crafted in a small factory. Each trunk is carefully cut with highly advanced machinery, guaranteeing accuracy and the best quality. After cutting and shaping the objects into a mould, the surface is given its final GUAXS finish with the help of several hand tools. A core hole enables the necessary drying process. For us, the fascination lies in the naturally grown structures of the wood which makes every single piece so unique.The wood is suitable for the indoor as well as for the outdoor area of your home.
