open call to industrial designers

You send in your original (not currently produced or sold), design file for a furnishing item (see categories on this page) and our curatorial team will jury them for possible production and inclusion in the Wooda collection. You will be notified whether or not your design is accepted for production. If accepted, you will be sent a contract to sign, which will allow Wooda to exclusively produce your item for three years with first option for renewal. You will always own your design. Once produced, your design will be priced and available for sale directly to the public on the Wooda site, and you will receive a 10% royalty for each one sold. Each piece will be numbered and stamped with the Wooda logo and your signature. You will be able to purchase one of your own designs at a 40% discount.

We know that historically, the most iconic designs have been created by the greats of industrial design. We want to be a part of that exciting legacy. Many designers dream of working in wood, but don’t have the facilities to realize that dream. We would be honored to bring your very best designs for wood to life. Amaze us!

Other Details

You can specify wood and finishes, but Wooda reserves the right to use different woods and/or finishes to meet market trends. You should design primarily for solid dimension lumber. In some instances, plywood and veneers would be considered. Although you can use small accents of other materials such as metal and fabric, the majority of your design should be wood.
