In Guaraní, the language of the original peoples of Paraguay, Apu’a means ‘Circular’.

We design with circular criteria to give you timeless pieces with the objective that they last in time.

Inspired in our Mediterranean and Paraguayan roots, we design respecting the relationship between nature and industry.

Apu’a was born in 2015, in Asunción, Paraguay, as a design studio that works on custom-made furniture projects.

Since 2021, and based in Valencia, we have also become editors, creating pieces with history, capable of moving and raising awareness through conscious design.

We take advantage of materials in perfect condition that, due to their small size and inconsistent production, are discarded by the wood and metal industry. We do the same with disused objects or furniture.

Thanks to this model, we avoid that all these materials end up in landfills, or that they are recycled again through processes with higher energy consumption than we use to convert them into new pieces.


Lover of nature, of simplicity, of building with what there is, and recovering all disused materials that are more than a treasure.
