Company pow wow with Note from Sweden
Last week LZF welcomed Swedish design studio NOTE to the LZF factory for introductory meeting between companies. Little did we know that our brief meeting in milan would lay the ground work for such a exhilarating encounter.
I must admit that we had been following their work closely at LZF. Mostly we had been impressed by their continual ability to produce faultlessly sleek designs, which came at no expense to functionality, quite a gift. But after meeting them in person, we can say that it is more than just their designs we are impressed by.
They arrived in the heat of the day, and, after a flustered greeting were taken on a personally guided tour of the LZF Factory by CEO´s Sandro and Marivi. We wanted to show them what we did, how we worked and the human side to LZF which they were quick to cotton on to.
They were inquisitive & curious about our manufacturing process having an amazing eye for small details not to mention having no issue about jumping in and talked to our workers in basic Spanish.
After the tour and a lot of friendly banter, we made our way to Baitretas for a traditional Valencian lunch of wood fired paella. Here talk continued not so much about work but about the beautiful places we had been, experiences we had had, people we had met.
We are please to say that they felt like real people. The kind of people that make you think that there is hope for humanity after all and that if we all were equipped with this kind of attitude only good could come forth.
Soon though it was time to retire for the day. We usually find goodbyes difficult, however this wasn’t so much a ‘goodbye’ as it was ‘We’ll see you soon’.
So what came of all of this? Well, we gained some new friends, had a great laugh and perhaps initiated something special… but we aren´t going to give away anything yet. You will just have to wait.
All in all though, it was definitely a note worthy experience.
