    They would like to enter into manufacturing agreements, but also build long term relationships to those that have the need to sometimes collaborate with designers on a royalty basis.
  • Description:
    The Swedish furniture and design studio has been in operations for more than 15 years, with their head designer having had a lifelong contractor relationship to among others IKEA.
