The project has invited designers from across the globe to create their own character, making use of LLadros handmade porcelain to represent their personal universe.

After securing a place in Time Magazines list of 100 most relevant creators, Jaime Hayon collaborated with Japanese studio, Devilrobots, and American artist, Tim Biskup, to create the first versions of the character.

Ptolomy Manns collection has been particularly praised for its vivid, geometric style; her love of quality and colour has also been highly commended by critics.
