Established in 2017, OPEN OBJECT is a design-focused ceramic brand based in China. The brand re-interprets the notion of ‘Chinese ceramics’ by integrating modernist design principles with meticulous craftsmanship. OPEN OBJECT seeks the abstract quality of simple forms and the timeless beauty of well-balanced proportions.

OPEN OBJECT has two lines, LAB and MASS. Pieces from the LAB line are exclusively produced in limited number by selected ceramicists and artists. LAB presents the highest level craftsmanship through simple and reduced forms, an approach of sober luxury. The MASS line includes designs that are optimized for mass production techniques. Pieces are thus kept accessible without compromising on the same exacting standards of quality.
