Seoul, South Korea
Tradition and modernity coexist, and we believe it is our duty to learn from the past and use that knowledge to shape the present and future. In a rapidly changing world, traditions may be overlooked and disregarded if not closely examined. We are taking a closer look at the things that have always been around us, re-observing them, and using current language to create fun, enjoyable, and beneficial objects.
Let’s be together for a long time.
