Our Story

“Vuoma” is a Sámi word, meaning a long and gentle river valley between arctic hill. The beautiful nature of Finland and traditional Scandinavian design have been our sources of inspiration for our products giving rise to WUOMA.

Our idea was born out of a desire to bring well-designed and ecological alternatives to bathroom and hygiene products that are commonly made of plastic and metal. We took notice of several new and modern buildings with stylish interiors, but the unaesthetic soap dispensers on the walls ruined the overall ambiance.

The first prototypes were sketched on a napkin during a lunch meeting in a fast-food restaurant . Subsequently, the prototype production began at the home of master carpenter Visa Meisalmi in Tampere. After numerous prototypes, the product family began to take shape.

We aim to combine modern design work and traditional Finnish wood and metal craftsmanship in our products. We believe that future work and living spaces require product solutions that value elegance and the ecological lifecycle of the items. Beautifully designed and executed spaces deserve products of equal value. All WUOMA products have received international recognition and are designed and manufactured in Finland.
