Raw Material / Independent designer brand

Raw Material
Raw Material

Raw Material was founded by Mr.Li, RM is committed to the research of daily materials and the exploration of the formal language. The advanced development of materialization and the culture of consumption have forced people to re-position the relationship between nature and human, my Inspiration for the theme derives from the thoughts of "heaven-man syncretism"(the core of classic Chinese philosophical).Brand basic concept is not only reflected from the object’s self-perception, but it also thinks of the object as a kind of emotional response. RM restored the response, which is a challenge to the possibility and uncertainty of the materials.
