  • Capture 1. ORIGIN
    2007-2016|FRANZ AWARD

    The predecessor of the FRANZ Rising Star Project was the “FRANZ AWARD,” which was awarded from 2007 to 2016.

    Over the past few years, FRANZ has received feedback pointing out the fact that the “design competitions’ resources are mostly provided to a small number of winners, which is a pity for most design students.”

    For this reason, FRANZ has decided to increase the number of awards by creating an exclusive porcelain design scholarship for current students, thereby transforming the FRANZ AWARD into the “Rising Star Project.” The project aims to use the scholarship to awaken students’ passion for porcelain; with unchanged vision and ideals, the project continues to encourage porcelain creations among the new generation.

    Capture 2. CONCEPT

    Porcelain has been one of humans’ greatest inventions since the Stone Age; it is solid yet smooth, fragile yet permanent. This unmalleable material has long been fired at over a thousand degrees and transformed into delicate pieces that can be passed on for centuries.

    FRANZ was founded in porcelain and aims to convey beauty with porcelain. In order to keep on exploring the future possibilities of porcelain and to support those with potential among the new generation in their pursuit of excellence in porcelain design, this project offers a porcelain design scholarship to 100 students in order to support their initiative to actualize their dreams.
    The FRANZ Rising Star Project hopes to alleviate students’ financial burdens caused by prototype expenses.

    FRANZ expects the new generation to fully develop their creativity and become rising stars in design that shine in the future.

    “Fulfill the Goals as Seen and Achieved in Dreams.”

    We hope that all the students who aspire to engage in porcelain design across the world can give full scope to their talent and creativity to their hearts’ content, as they head towards becoming rising stars in the future.
