Shanghai is a tribute to the brimming city of Shanghai where East and West, future and past melt together.
Source of inspiration of the collection are the marvelous lattice designs within classical Chinese architecture. Designs of which the origin goes back over 3000 years. With complex patterns that often have a special significance within Chinese culture.
With computer techniques the centuries old basic pattern has been transformed into a whole new three-dimensional pattern, that is characterized by a tremendous deepening effect and subtlety. Yet the delicate designs have a great strength thanks to their three-dimensional shape.
With the Shanghai collection the boundaries of 3D printing and lost wax casting are being searched. Without this technique the production would be practically impossible.
