Design Concept

“walk through the bamboo forest”
The bamboo forest speaks in a whisper. Each breeze nudges the trees into a swaying, crisscrossing rhythm. We first heard this natural lullaby during a walk in Kyoto. This experience was later explored through paper origami, which inspired the undulating pattern of the Zigzag series.

Our zigzag series silver ring was inspired by the swaying trees of a bamboo forest. The undulating pattern of this ring was studied through a series of origami paper models. This ring can be both dressy, casual, and perfect for the woman who wants a bit of edginess in her wardrobe!
