re,play is a south korean design studio founded by jey jeonghwa park. her approach to design is that of taking the ordinary to an outstanding place. with ‘play!cassette earphone pouch’, the studio has created a little product for music lovers that turns the basic function of holding earphones into the emotional experiences of playing music using walkmans and cassettes.

‘play!cassette’ was designed and manufactured in seoul, south korea. although the city is usually known as the kingdom of the internet, it still has many small manufacturers who are manually handling their works every single day. jey jeonghwa park respects their works and asked them to bring her designs to live. the result of this co-working experience is available in three different colors and can be bought online at the re,play webpage.
