Eco-friendly Design Chinese Pattern / Pattern

Eco-friendly Design Chinese Pattern

Ancient Chinese believed the sky was a circle and the earth a square.
The pattern consists of these two shapes in a crystalline design. The earth is filled with natural materials and brings forth humans.
But unbridled consumerism (square) threatens the harmony under the sky. Removing the sharp corners of consumerism, we make them hexagons that fit better among the circles.
The newfound harmony is incorporated in daily products that stimulate our five senses. It constantly reminds consumers to tread lightly over the earth.
