2019,Year of the Pig

In Mandarin, pig is pronounced zhu which also sounds like the characters for “blessing” and “all”. This play on words is the inspiration behind this design.

In traditional Eastern culture, the bowl is an everyday object with a beginning and an end. It symbolizes fulfillment and togetherness.

The star of this show is a pig frolicking among a dense tangle of leaves, flowers and two golden pumpkins presented in traditional paper-cut style. Flowers and fruit symbolize the inextinguishable force of life.

The chopstick rest is designed as a pair of joined pumpkins; its vines and leaves form a repeating motif oft used in Eastern design.

2019 猪年

汉语里,猪谐音「祝」与「诸」,二者合一,祝愿万事如意;碗,在东方传统文化中,不仅是一件天天陪伴的日常器皿,更因其饱满,有始有终的造型,成为圆满,团聚的象征。

剪纸风格的猪年主角,在花丛中快乐奔跑。花团锦簇里长着一对金瓜,有花,有果,演绎美好祝福生生不息的灵动气象。

金瓜的枝叶藤蔓,筷身的缠枝牡丹,均源自东方韵味的连续图纹

I Am Fortune

Fulfillment and ease,
it all begins with me.
Flowers bloom,
fruits ripen,
our world flourishes interminably.
Here comes the golden pig,
here comes color and life.

诸事万福

诸事有我
圆满顺遂
花开
果熟
万象生生不息
金猪驾到
万福添彩 

 

LIULI LIVING – INSPIRING EASTERN AESTHETICS IN OUR LIFE

Since 1987, LIULIGONGFANG has led Asia in the cultural awareness of LIULI; LIULI LIVING - a progression from LIULIGONGFANG’s creative nature that is principled on Chinese traditional aesthetics brings out the ingenuity of life and presents a distinction in contemporary Asian living.

LIULI:

LIULIGONGFANG believes that glass is a material but also a philosophy and an emotion. In using the Han Dynasty term for glass, we put the emphasis on our definition and expectation of Chinese culture in addition to our philosophies and emotions.

LIVING:

Our definition of living is a personal life attitude, a life style which you chose; one that can be shared with friends and offers self-advancement.

LIULI Bead:

 The Liuli bead is the brand symbol of LIULI LIVING, this symbol of fulfillment represents a design element and an attitude. The vivid orange-yellow color encourages people to embody a positive spirit and to bring “light” into their hearts.
