AddAddOBLIQUE_H02, Mother-of-Pearl Deep Green Drawer
The Oblique Collection represents our belief that one needs to take a step back from a fixed notion and look at something from all angles to discover the hidden beauty, in the same way as the mother-of-pearl creates iridescent shimmering at different angles. Moreover, the merging of the mother-of-pearl and architecture represents harmony that brings together seemingly contradicting values—the past and future, nature and artificial, analogue and digital, handmade and mechanical, and sense and sensibility—and embodies the world through an object where tradition and modernity can coexist.
