We are makers of restaurant tableware. Our products enhance the experience of eating. All come in limited editions, even the standards.
The company is founded and run by Constance and Tonje, two Norwegian product designers with extensive background from development and production of tableware. We worked together in Figgjo for many years, and found a common fascination for the experience of eating, and how tableware products could enhance this experience. Wanting to explore all the possibilities that different materials and techniques offer, we started Odd Standard in June 2014.
