USEFUL WORKSHOP
is a Seoul based design studio, comprised of industrial designers and architects. We aim to build a design process upon a profound knowledge of technology, material, craft, and various industries. We are currently working and developing products across multiple categories, including small objects, mass produced products, furniture, space and brand. Our approach to design is characterised by a creative research and very practical prototyping.
