Theme of the Year
Theme of the Year
KSYDA's core values are innovation, sustainability, and a better future. Considering this basic value, the theme of 2023 is ‘Sustainable and Enjoyable’.
With the overuse of the word "sustainable" and the advent of green washing, which means camouflage environmentalism, we sometimes think that "sustainable" is no longer special.
However, we are still paying attention to the eco-friendly value of 'sustainable' and are actually producing the results.
In 2023, KSYDA hopes to create an opportunity for many people to realize the importance of sustainability and join the movement by adding joy to eco-friendly design.
