The Factory Store
MENT Factory is a creative sanctuary located between Lillehammer and Hunderfossen. In what was once the world's oldest "wooden ski" factory, you can experience Norwegian design and handmade porcelain products, embraced by interior enthusiasts both domestically and internationally. Here, you can shop in the factory store, witness the production process, find inspiration in the rich gallery, enjoy the beautiful lush garden, or simply sit down and take in the sight of the green Gudbrandsdalslågen river, which has inspired the unique Ment colors.

MENT's vision is to create products that captivate the user's senses and inspire a desire to cherish and build their own unique collection of handmade products.

Ment is especially proud of its craftsmen who, with experience, patience, and a steady hand, create cups, plates, bowls, and much more. Ment is happy to take you inside the production process and provide more information about it.

The Gallery:
At Ment's Gallery, you can see exhibitions featuring:
- Special designs for the famous restaurant "Under"
- Special designs for Omakase by Alex Cabiao
- Special designs for Brimi Eventyr.
We showcase concept ideas and prototypes. You can also find inspiring table settings here.

The Factory Garden:
Just below the factory store, a lush garden stretches all the way to the Lågen river. There is nothing more relaxing than watching the river flow slowly by, and it is often here that ideas for new Ment products flourish. Take a moment to catch your breath!

Product Development:
Inside the factory store, you will find Ment's design lab. This is where all products are sketched, tested, and developed, with nature as the greatest source of inspiration.
