Days & Months / furniture

Days & Months
Days & Months

Ancestors living in agricultural society found out “Hours” by shadows of sundial, “Days” by observing Sunrise and sunset, and the relationship between “Solar terms” and crops. All of their experiences of life gathered in Chinese lunar calendar, telling us the regulation of the world. However, the Chinese lunar calendar faded away gradually since people are able to live without it nowadays. Therefore, we design “Days & Months”, for transforming the impression of Chinese lunar calendar, which is regarded as complex, old mannish and superstitious. We expect to develop the Chinese lunar calendar of modern life aesthetics and globalization.
