Like an uphill battle, change is difficult, but Lab 4GD believes doing the right thing for good deeds will ripple throughout the world. Believers like us and friends in industries will be working hard to make earth a better place now and for generations to come.

GREEN

It is our mission to design and create long-lasting products with environmentally friendly materials. What we believe is circular economy. Every single component in our design is carefully examined if it can be easily repaired, reused and recycled.

RETURN TO THE ESSENCE

Center in humanity, we inherit the good from our ancestors and carry on creating a product for what it should be in essence.  We believe we are part of human society where we learn from and giving back to maintain the harmony in it.
