A lot of innovation has taken place in the toy market, but the Tomogram is a lineup of modern toys that take a nod from the design aesthetic of the past. Each of the Tomogram toys features an inherently modern form and color palette, but is made in the style of toys from the past.

The Tomogram is inspired by the traditional design of toys like the toys of Japan and India made using the lathe, and even the Matryoshka dolls from Russia. These toys call to mind a number of cultural images that are incorporated into the Tomogram toy in a way that is respectfully homage-oriented while still being a design that's all its own.

The Tomogram modern toys are the design work of Taewoo Kim and Minwoo Lee.
