GUK EMANUELA REALE was born in Catania in 1892 and graduated from the Universidad degli Studi de Roma Tre with a Bachelor of Architecture. JON SAUTO ARCE was born in Bilbao in 1978 and graduated from the Escuela Técnica Superior de San Sebastián with a Bachelor of Architecture. From the encounter of these two architects and two homelands, Sicily and the Basque Country, the architectural concept of Guk -which in Basque means “us”- was born. “Us” conveys the idea of a geology made of knowledge and traditions that has the Mediterranean sea as a cultural foundation. On the one hand, the tradition in the Basque architecture and sculpture, typically defined by honest materials and absence of any superfluous shape that suffocates the message of the shapes. On the other hand, the cultural legacy of the island of Sicily and the thorough artisanal knowledge in the product elaboration.

FURNITURE “Cement is one of the most modern architectural materials. The capacity to adapt to any figure, its durability and austere appearance, on top of being economical and accessible, are aspects that help us find ourselves comfortable in Guk concept.” Emanuela & Jon
