A design oriented start-up company from Denmark has recently developed a new series of porcelain products. Therefore the Danish company needs a manufacturing agreement and is for that purpose searching for manufacturers of glazed porcelain items. Order size is difficult to predict, but is estimated to be around 500 pieces per order.
A design oriented company from Denmark selling various porcelain products for end users is searching for manufacturers of glazed porcelain items. The Danish company is a start-up that has developed a series of porcelain products (please see attached pictures). The starting point for the series of products is to create an elegant and modern series of products, which is an alternative to the very organic and expressive handmade ceramic products that have entered the market in recent years. The series of porcelain products emphasizes a more pure and graphic expression that creates a connection between Western postmodernism and Japanese origami. The need is a manufacturer who has experience in working with cast, glazed items in porcelain. The manufacturer must be able to make the molds based on drawings of the final product, but it is also possible to cast a model and copy this and make the mold on basis of that, i.e. the Danish company sends the prototypes in excess (based on the manufacturers information about "shrinkage"). Also the preferred manufacturer can work with colors and partial glazing, i.e. parts of the final items appear unglazed. Order size will typically be around 500 pieces per order. The Danish company is interested in a manufacturing agreement.
