    About The Set

    Rubrehose launched in 2021 as a new brand from the maker Badchad, who was inspired by rubber hose animation art. This 1920s art style, also known as inkblot cartoons, was monochromatic or grayscale, and featured characters with "rubbery" flowing arms and legs, pie or conjoined eyes, and four-fingered hands with white gloves. Chad adopted this style while sculpting the first Rubrehose releases, and combined this with splashes of colour for DCS Deadbeats. Now this classic colourway is here in GMK CYL with matching deskmats and upcoming TGR Jane and Singa Kohaku Keyboards.

      Project History:

      The Seoul Mechanical Keyboard Expo wasn't merely a showcase of innovation; it became a hub for collaboration among key figures in the community. Representatives from renowned names like KLC, Rubrehose, GMK, and more gathered to address common frustrations faced by enthusiasts. These included the struggle to find perfect keycap sets, manage multiple kits, and deal with financial constraints. Their response was a collaborative effort to create curated, all-in-one keycap sets at more accessible prices. It wasn't just about a product; it was a collective journey towards a smoother, more affordable, and fulfilling enthusiast experience.

      This collaboration aimed to streamline the keyboard enthusiast journey by providing meticulously paired keycap sets, eliminating the need for multiple kits and offering them at more accessible prices. It symbolized the power of collective innovation and community spirit within the keyboard enthusiast scene, transcending mere product creation to forge a new path together. This project, known as the Seoul Collaboration, invites enthusiasts to explore its outcomes and join in pushing the boundaries of design and functionality for a keyboard experience that resonates with all.
