Open Application for New Products

Want to get featured in Croatian Design Superstore? It’s easier than you think!
Whether you produce furniture, lighting, souvenirs, gastro goods and cosmetics, or design fashion clothing, accessories, toys, books, posters and t-shirts – anything goes!
This is your chance to present your work to the world (and earn that extra pocket money you always talk about).

Selection criterion
The basic selection criterion for all of our featured products is design excellence. The selection paid special attention to a level of innovation in each product, wellbeing for the final user and responsibility, or the benefit for the society, environment, culture and economy (improved competitiveness and quality of life, durability, long lifecycle and positive effect on the environment, low influence of materials and processes during the lifecycle, designed for repairing/reuse/recycling, decreased use of materials and less waste, various benefits for a client/an investor (profitability, improved sales results, branding, reputation). In other words, we are looking for much more than a cute design.

 

Design categories
Current list of design categories consist of 14 types of products. However, applications for products that can not be easily defined through categories, or are a category for itself – typography posters & t-shirts, to set an example – are also accepted. We are not very fond of putting good design in pre-defined boxes. The following categories can merely help you get an idea of what could be eligible for the CDSS selection.
1. furniture
2. lighting
3. home decoration
4. kitchen & tableware
5. gastro
6. for kids
7. fashion
8. accessories
9. crafts
10. souvenirs & gifts
11. outdoors
12. books
13. music
14. cosmetics

 

Application process
In order to apply for the selection, fulfilling the official CDSS application form is essential, providing us with all the important information about your design or product, as well as a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 high quality (300dpi) photos of the product and one high quality photo of the designer. All of the above is to be sent to the address croatiandesignsuperstore@gmail.com. Products that do get selected for a business cooperation with Croatian Design Superstore will be contacted with additional info about the next step.

 

Deadline
We hate being told what to do, and when to do it. That’s why we’re letting you decide when you’ll be ready to be our partner. The application call is open all year long, and we check our e-mail on a daily bases. It is all up to you and your product.


Submit your design for a chance to be a part of CDSS showcase & pop-up shops via our official application!
