Studio Laura Straßer was founded in 2009 as a studio for product design with focus on porcelain and ceramic designs. Since then the Studio worked on numerous projects and products, which were continuously presented on international shows and fairs.

As an expert for white gold the Studio develops and designs porcelain and ceramic products for clients and partners with consideration of the specific material involved. Despite international clients the Studio continues collaborations with local manufacturers in Thuringia. Local production is a basic necessity because it provides proximity and access to an excellent learning environment. In addition, the collaboration with local manufacturer experts helps innovative product development and reinforcement of regional and European porcelain manufacturing.

Besides Studio Laura Straßer, Laura Straßer is also part of the design label frenchknicker, founded in 2006 with here colleague Milia Seyppel, under which pseudonym both designer distribute and exhibit their common works.
