PROJECT

DESCRIPTION


Silk culture is both a witness of China’s stepping into the world stage and a catalyst for ancient Eastern and Western large scale commercial communication. “Transparent Heart” is a silk quilt based on the concept of “fashionable Chinese style”, aiming to convey the profundity of Chinese intangible cultural heritage and carry forward the spirit of the Silk Road by the modern technique. Among all the silks, Hu silk is the best. Featured by the eight characters, namely white, round, resilience, uniformity, softness, cleanness, fineness and solidness, it is acclaimed as “the queen of fibers”. By degreasing and degumming the silk through a scientific and reasonable golden ratio, the fluffiness and softness of the silk quilt have been increased, making its core less likely to be hardened, and extending its service life.

The whole quilt is made of transparent tulle (a kind of silk chiffon, made of 100% mulberry silk), dupioni (made of 100% mulberry silk) and silk jacquard fabric (made of mulberry satin, woven by interweaving warp and weft yarns to form patterns or designs, made of 100% mulberry silk). Compared with artificial fibers, silk is carbon neutral in the production process with its natural fiber properties. It can be reused in the sustainable value chain, and is 100% recyclable and degradable after use, which will eventually realize the sustainable development philosophy of “Come from nature, get back to nature”.

As the traditional silk quilt covers are made of cotton or polyester fibers, the user cannot directly see the filling fibers inside, which leads to the uneven quality of China's silk quilt market and the frequent occurrence of substandard quality. The product's cover is interwoven with plain weave, reducing the density of warp and weft. The effect of thinness, transparency and softness is achieved, which allows users to directly observe the inner filling, thus protecting their rights while echoing the name "Transparent Heart".

At the same time, its silk jacquard fabric is designed with a water ripple texture with elements of Jiangnan water village (south of the Yangtze River in China) by the weaving process of satin, while its inner pocket is patterned with the Feine Seide technique (a traditional Chinese complex hand-weaving technique) and finally realizes the visual effect of presenting three techniques with one raw material, giving a modern connotation to the traditional Chinese intangible cultural heritage.

In terms of function, the silk quilt has excellent fluffiness, softness and breathability, and can release a variety of sleep-aiding factors to improve sleep quality, protect skin, suitable for users of all ages, achieving a high degree of unity between beauty and functionality.

Recyclable PET Flooring&Wall Panel
PROJECT

DESCRIPTION


As time marches on, the concept of people-oriented and personalized design is evolving into the prevailing trend of modern interior design, which has also driven the development of architectural decoration materials. While pursuing more exquisite space design, an increasing number of designers begin to attach importance to material safety and green environmental protection, giving rise to a great number of environmentally friendly polymer floors such as PP and PU. However, this kind of environmental protection only exists in terms of degradation and recycling, and the materials they are made out of are still materials newly extracted from oil.
This PET material is a new generation of sustainable materials. Its PET raw materials come from a variety of recycled PET items (clothes, cups, etc.), thus significantly reducing the white pollution of existing plastic materials and the abuse of new materials, and the PET Core can be recycled many times after being discarded, making it more environmentally friendly than PP or PU. It is first used in the flooring& panel industry globally. We use digital printing technology to spray UV ink on the treated PET surface, which can achieve any design patterns, then use UV high-gloss or matte paint to increase the texture of the surface, and finally apply UV transparent abrasion resistant material to enhance the abrasion resistance, scratch resistance and slip resistance. The PET sheet made in this way has a strong performance, and what is even more remarkable, it doesn't contain any adhesives such as glue in the whole process. With a surface hardness up to 67, it is tough and can effectively resist impact. When paired with the bottom cushion pad, it features excellent homeothermy and noise reduction, and can prevent ultraviolet rays. It is a perfect decorative material, easily enhancing the aesthetics of the space.
The product can be perfectly restored in 4 designs and patterns thanks to high-definition ink jet technology and digital printing technology:
1. Featuring a restrained design, Lauren Platinum contains patterns outlined by golden edge lines in a background color of Lauren white, as well as delicate and smooth texture, vividly presenting the high quality as real stone. It is natural and irregular, noble but not flashy, representing the attitude towards life and also the pursuit of aesthetics.
2. Stauffenberg adopts Normandie gray as the background color, characterized by wabi-sabi design style, which is deep, quiet, elegant and mysterious.
Slovenia features a background color of Athens gray, which carries the original natural flavor, understated and not flamboyant. It brings a simple and unpretentious impression and an all-embracing beauty.
4. Inspired by the work "The Starry Night" of the Impressionist painter Vincent William van Gogh, Starry Night uses diverse colors to perfectly render the entire colorful starry sky. The light blue tone and dynamic lines leave people with a free sense of time and space and infinite reverie.
