We've now launched a TalentLAB initiative where designers can submit their products and our customers can make a financial pledge for their favourite, with the design going into production as soon as it becomes fully funded.
How it works:
Every two months, we shortlist between 15 to 30 of the designs that have been submitted. The selected pieces are then prototyped, photographed and added to the TalentLAB website. A customer can then pay a small, refundable deposit starting from £5 to £30 (depending on the price of the piece) to show their interest in your unique design. If a design reaches 100% of its funding goal, it’ll be manufactured and sold by MADE.
If your piece gets manufactured, the customers who have helped fund this, will get a 30% early-bird discount on the final MADE price.
