Established in 2015, WGNB is a space design studio based in Seoul.

Under the slogan “See the same thing but think differently”, WGNB pursues creating a new perspective through connecting the various inspirations of our daily lives with spatial design. With the new perspective and flexible thoughts, WGNB redefines the boundaries between design that ranges from architecture, furniture to product design. Based on this creative goal, we seek to create a new sense of experience by collaborating with various genres of art.

Today, WGNB now attempts to form fundamental interactions within the spatial stories through the studies of context, form, functionality, structure, detail, and materials.
