Kuo Duo is started in 2021 as a creative studio for three-dimensional design by Hwachan Lee and Yoomin Maeng. Both got a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Hong-ik University in Seoul, South Korea. The studio creates furniture, living product, objet and space installation by the designers with international experience in studios like Cecilie Manz Studio, Form Us With Love, Shigeki Fujishiro Design and SWNA.

They are particularly interested in questioning preconception and expanding perception towards our three-dimensional world. Without confining themselves to single standard, they challenge to specific boundaries in their works and strive to design objects that deviate from the existing way of thinking or shape. From small objet to furniture, attempts to deal with different forms, materials, and making methods are an important subject for them.
