Adorno is an invite-only platform managed by our curation team and our international network of curators, to ensure we maintain the highest quality. To become a member of Adorno, the designer or studio must be accepted by our curators. Makers who have not been invited are welcome to introduce themselves here to be vetted for inclusion.
We showcase only unique or limited-edition contemporary design & functional art, spanning the fields of furniture, textiles, lighting, ceramics, sculpture, and wearables. We sell to a wide variety of collectors, anything from lower-priced decor to highly collectible statement pieces.
We are looking for makers working independently at the intersection of design, art, and crafts, creating unique contemporary works, spanning the fields of functional art. Besides that, we look carefully at your work to consider if we will be able to provide value to your practice. If you are not accepted, it doesn’t mean your work is not good – usually it’s because your work is out of scope for our audience or because your practice and consistency in style are not developed enough.
We spend considerable time and resources on curating, presenting, and promoting the members of the ADORNO community, and ship the orders we generate. Thus we ask for a monthly fee to ensure our competent team can be at your service throughout your membership. Besides the monthly fee, we charge a fixed low commission on every sale.
Currently, while writing this, Adorno is working with only a handful of the best designers from 36 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America, and South America. We are always looking to expand to new and interesting design scenes, so if you are not in any of the above, please don’t hesitate to apply and we will consider expanding to your region.
We receive many applications and can’t guarantee acceptance. Please allow 1-2 weeks for our curators to review your application.
