Craftsmanship Diary invites Mr. Wong, the owner of MK Design, to join us today.
MK Design, located in a nearby alley next to Taipei, is a design studio specializing in loft-style works. In addition to their handmade product collection, MK Design also holds workshops on handmade lamps, which are very popular among consumers and corporate team buildings. To promote the spirit of craftsmanship, the owner, Mr. Wong, and his father designed and decorated the studio all by themselves, including the furniture, lighting, and even the signboard. For them, the studio itself is the best introduction of what MK Design stands for.
The interior design is full of loft-style decorations.
It all began when Mr. Wong was a graphic designer and the loft-style trend was beginning to gain popularity internationally. He decided to start a business related to loft-style designs with his father and brothers due to a deep passion for handmade crafts. In the beginning, Mr. Wong only sold materials online. Later on, he opened a physical store to accommodate customer needs. The “MK” stands for makers, during the interview, it is not hard to tell Mr. Wong’s passion and enthusiasm for craftsmanship.
The lamp resembles Mr.Wong’s idea of sharing the warmth of handmade works.
To satisfy the growing demand for personalized products, Mr. Wong added laser engraving to their workshops. He decided to use Beambox, a desktop laser engraver and cutter, because “its intuitive software allows users to easily access all features of Beambox, the multi-computer control and high compatibility of file formats enable our customers to make personalized items in a fast and simple way.”
Customers can make personalized lamps with customized parts and letters.
Mr. Wong believes that craftsmanship stands for the pursuit of perfect craftworks and unwavering handmade quality. With Beambox added to their production process, Mr. Wong and MK Design can create artworks in a faster and simpler way without compromising the idea of true craftsmanship.
Products of MK Design showcase many laser engraving ideas.
