Through the 1616/ Arita Japan project with Scholten & Baijings, Danish company Georg Jensen took notice of Arita and decided to produce a new series named “Tea for Georg” designer by Scholten & Baijings in Arita as an OEM assignment. Making use of the profound know-how of the local craftsmen, designs could be realised that might now have been possible to realise anywhere else - for example the thin but perfectly flat top of the cake stand with a graphical print.
The project involved mediation between the Japanese producer Momota Touen, Georg Jensen and the designers, project coordination, translation, factory visits, reviewing product samples.
