2001 Magnus Tyrén and Marita Lord started Cult Design. They both worked at Borås Tapeter the biggest wall paper company in Nordic.
All design of our products are taking place in Sweden, while most production occurs in China. The design department in Gothenburg are working very close to the ceramics factory located in Guangdong Province in China. They manufacture our products by a white earthenware that has a high density, making our pots extra tight and keeps a very good and consistent quality. There are a variety of glazes and decorative opportunities for our designers to experiment with. Sometimes in the case of products for food is also used stoneware.
Production is still a craft. It sculpts, molds, glaze, burning and painting decorations by hand, our designers drawings and instructions. This makes each product unique! We have calculated that a new product passes at least 25 pairs of hands before it is complete and reaches the end consumer. The factory’s logistics are exemplary and the work is very good. Moreover, it is a pleasant family atmosphere in the factory despite the many employees. That we appreciate. In autumn 2007 the factory was ISO-certified, which of course we are very proud of. Here are some pictures from the production of Cult Design’s ceramic products.
