In the 5,000-year historical and cultural journey of Eastern civilization, jade has always played a significant role. Jade and similar materials are natural, possessing a long and illustrious history. However, today, many young people perceive jade as an ancient material. In reality, there are no ancient materials, only ancient forms. People's contemporary perception of jade is still rooted in its manifestations from 500 years ago.
CIGA Design ingeniously blends the material of jade with modern design. It showcases the distinct Oriental charm and textural beauty of natural jade while embodying a contemporary, minimalist, and mechanical aesthetic.
