Born: 1994

"Material for tomorrow"

Halin Lee and Eunji Jun are the founders of WKND Lab - a design studio based in Seoul, Korea, and Lucerne, Switzerland.
Our work field varies from material research, object, to furniture design. All with the keyword of 'sustainability'.
We pursue simple design that reflects the beautiful texture and color of the founded material.
By focusing on plant-based and animal-based industrial wastes that are discarded or ignored although they have high potentials to become eco-friendly raw materials.
With our designed objects, we aim to introduce and deliver our materials into peoples' lifestyles, suggesting not just esthetic but also sustainable alternatives.

More About WKND Lab

Question IconWhat inspires you?

We are living in an era where everyone needs to participate in making the earth greener. Hence why we cannot just naively think that reusing existing materials is already enough. It is crucial to also pay attention to ignored and/or undiscovered wasted materials which could be a life-changing addition to bioplastic/biomaterial.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

We find materials, do research, think about the possible solutions for the materials to turn into objects, design, make. Voilà! sustainable WKND Lab object!
