i©øLab. [i-cubed-lab] is a design studio focusing on emotional objet in monotone lifestyle. We are a design team (studied in London and Seoul) has been working with international company as 'Kikkerland inc.' and 'MoMA design NY'. Our design products are qualified by international design awards as 'Red-dot awards Germany' & 'INDEX awards Denmark'. Our emotional designs are based on art, literature and science to search for ideal concepts of new experiences. Through international collaborations, we are also directing charity opportunities for global 'nature & social' issues by design.
We believe in emotional imagination could cure missing values of over systematized urban living and bring the function beyond the function. We develop products focused on bringing to life the variety of emotions to monotone life patterns. Utilizing the imaginary, illusory and ideal aspects of time and space, we give new meanings into ordinary objects by creating emotional interaction between users and functional usages to bring back modern people¡¯s lost fantasy.
