About us.

Odd Standard is founded and run by Constance and Tonje, two Norwegian product designers with extensive background from development and production of tableware. Brought together by a common fascination for how tableware products could enhance the experience of eating, and an ambition to explore the possibilities that different materials and techniques offer, we started Odd Standard in June 2014.


The Odd Standard team.

Constance Gaard Kristiansen  is the head of product development and quality control, and the expert on clay and glazes and ceramic production - especially the weird and hand-built things. She even has a master in ceramic design!

Tonje Sandberg  is the head of sales, marketing and administration, and runs the day-to-day planning in the microfactory. She has become quite an expert on jiggering plates - a surprising step to the side from her master in industrial design!

The microfactory.

Our products come from our own ceramic microfactory, or from some of the many skilled craftspeople and manufacturers we work with. We work with various materials; ceramics, glass, wood, stone, paper and more.
