Figgjo is the sole remaining porcelain manufacturer in the Nordics and is an important part of the Scandinavian design heritage. Founded in 1941 on a beautiful site by the riverside among the hills, the Figgjo manufacturer creates tableware porcelain of the highest quality for Michelin starred restaurants to corporate restaurants and cafés alike. Function is always paramount, every detail is carefully considered to ensure each piece fulfils its intended purpose.

The clean lines and understated elegance of Figgjo products are a result of forms following function and design collaborations with prestigious chefs to make sure that the products match their sophisticated needs. The factory buildings have been recently upgraded with state of the art machinery, taking a tour reveals the handiwork still needed to make beautiful, functional, durable porcelain: some products require as many as 52 different operations by hand. The manufacturer also hosts a small museum and a factory outlet with all Figgjo classics as well as new designs, specially made for the boutique.
