Aqun: the result of the combined vision of Julian Saija and Germán Mani Frers
JS: “At the age of 17, Julian Saija, decided to create a brand that was able to gather different values in it: Luxury, innovation, elegance, technology, quality, freedom and utility. That’s why he chose to develop an idea he had while looking for a gift for his father, that could answer to a rising specific demand. Therefore he started to build his company JSI, which mission is to create projects that suits and respects the criteria above mentioned.
Julian Saija is a 23 years-old law student in Italy who wants to have a direct application of the studies he does without loosing time. That brings him to have an efficient point of view on both occupations.

The relationships he creates with his team are really strong and long-lasting, he wants to create a “family” and not a company.
For Julian Saija the word “synergy” is the key-word for future businesses and for the evolving societies we live on; creating bridges from different universe can only be good and valuable.
