Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
It is not our first experience to produce unique, limited products.
The concept of Retroduck began in 2014 based on the simple idea that there should be a smarter way to enjoy smartphones. Combining conventional large-scale manufacturing and 3D printing technologies to overcome the limits of mass production and create infinite possibilities, Retroduck original eventually made its global debut on Kickstarter in September 2017, exceeding its funding goal by 320 percent.
Retroduck Original is currently sold in many outlets in Korea and abroad, including leading online and offline stores such as Urban Outfitters and Amazon. In particular, Retroduck’s unique design received extremely positive responses at the 2018 Maison & Objet Paris in September, with many well-known French department stores and lifestyle shops showing interest in offering Retroduck. As a result, Retroduck is now available in Galeries Lafayette, BHV Marais, Fleux and L'Avant Gardiste. In February 2019, Retroduck also plans to participate in NY NOW, considered the most influential retail event in North America.
