ODLCO is a design studio that explores manufacturing as a meeting point between design, consumption, craft, industrialism, usefulness, and everyday life. We stage events that explore these themes, manufacture goods by independent designers, and carry a selection of design merchandise for purchase. We specialize in low-volume manufacturing, utilizing regional resources to produce niche products, such as the Wabi Nabe Cast Iron Pot, Trivet Runner, and the Capitol Butter Dish.
