CDY was founded by designers and artists during their studies at the Korean National University of Arts in 2013. Over the course of 10 years, CDY has expanded their studio to one of Korea’s established neighborhoods for architecture and art, galleries and designers, located in Seochon, right next to Seoul’s iconic Gyeongbokgung palace. The studio values open-door-community interaction and a personal approach to design. Studio visits, collaborations with major labels and distributors, as well as order-made, side-by-side with product based designing, assembling and production all takes place in CDY Atelier in Seoul.
