About grapelab

Sales 286
On Etsy since 2021

We are a sustainable design lab doing a variety of experiments to solve environmental and social issues from a design point of view.

Using analog and green technologies, we are going against the flow of the high-tech era, taking a different approach to solving the world’s urgent issues. We focus mainly on wasted resources and vulnerable people in marginal areas of our society.

Lifecycle matters.

More important than just focusing on creating a unique product, we understand all the processes behind it.

We carefully think about every step of our product’s lifecycle and its connection to the environment–from production to its disposal. Continually searching for the cleanest sources, using minimum resources, green technology, and eliminating all unnecessary elements is our design goal.

Receive and give back.

Society is an important part of our environment. As a social venture, our mission is to build a more collaborative world.

People with intellectual disabilities are a vital part of our society’s diversity and our team–their talents give life to our products. We help struggling minorities to achieve financial stability through employment and artists with disabilities to gain more visibility through a profit-sharing system.

  • Hyun-Woo Kim

    South Korea

    The artist Hyun-woo Kim transforms everything he sees and feels into ‘pixel’ shapes. He is immersed in drawing for over 8 hours a day, making his unique world through pixels.His pixels go beyond the canvas, expressed on notes, recitals, media, and products.

  • Ivo Zibulla

    Germany

    Ivo Zibulla, illustrator of g.flow stone Art Edition: Rainbow Heart I really like to bring pixels into the material world. They were not meant for that purpose. They are artifacts of former technical limitations, today representatives of a so-called "Golden age of Videogaming."

  • Kyoung-wook Bae

    South Korea

    The combination of the artist’s daring brush movements and color express passion and hope. The colors and brush movements on his naturalistic and abstract works are free and they are composed of daily subjects that seem to embrace the pains of life in an open-minded approach.
