The memory filled radio

Our memories fade over time, but the most important ones remain with us. This transparent glass radio has its electrical circuits suspended in a way to suggest a moment frozen in time. The fragmented pieces represent memories that are connected together to link the past with the present.

Collaborated with Chohee One.

Room of the rest

Room of the rest
Comfort of the inexistence

Being surrounded by countless people and buildings in an urban environment can be overwhelming. The purpose of the room of rest is to provide a moment of peace. The box limits your auditory and visual perception to help you relax and take a momentary break.

AD Sleeve

AD Sleeve
Co-promotion between Starbucks and UNIQLO

The sleeve ad is a synergy between Starbucks and UNIQLO. An image of the model is printed on the cup and can be “dressed” by three different outfits on the coffee sleeves. It gives off the impression of dressing the model and combines the conservative, calm image of Starbucks, with the young, and energetic UNIQLO. Short-term promotion can be done by providing a discount coupon for UNIQLO with each purchased drink at Starbucks. In the same way, UNIQLO can give out drink vouchers for Starbucks to their customers.

Reel

Reel
Storage within a triangle

‘Reel’ can transform the main triangle of the bike frame to store your belongings. The silicone stickers are attached onto the frame and the elastic band is wound up between them. Unlike common bicycle accessories, the flexibility of the band allows the user to express their style by customizing the shape of ‘Reel’.

Let the kids be the artist

Similar to a Post-It note, this sketchbook solves the problem kids face when they want to display their drawing. Each page has an adhesive backing which allows kids to draw and have the self-satisfaction of hanging up their own work. Frames, glue, scissors, and a mother’s help are no longer needed.
