CCollaborated and inspired by young indie artists in Seoul, PB-01 is a next generation electronic sampler which experiments with the sound in different mediums. The instrument elaborates with taking the analogue characters of existing instruments and transcending it to the digital, making it an innovative DJ performance culture. Instead of pressing buttons to trigger sound, you can play the sound samples with different units such as the horn and string unit inside the instrument. Also the sensitive body can be tapped and moved to amplify and transform the sound in different pitches and tunes. The user can perform and play with them in different ways where creativity allows. Pablo’s Heart was inspired by the form of the AK-16 gun that was a symbolic figure as a tool for destruction, the idea was to shift it to the idea of creation.

Named after Henry Dreyfuss, the designer of the Model 302 and other iconic telephones, the Dreyfuss Special is a stereo speaker made from an upcycled telephone handset. As many of Dreyfuss's original phones were constructed from Bakelite, they are nearly immune to breaking down in landfills. Designers Jinsop Lee and Justin Kim claim on their site that they did not set out to recycle an existing product (saying that it is "a decent looking product that worked well, and just happened to use a recycled component"), but we think it's a marvelous reincarnation of outdated yet classic tech put to modern use. The form of the design passes from one generation to the next, as the nearly defunct landline gets repurposed as a portable MP3 speaker.
