DESIGN CONCEPT:

In LIULIGONGFANG, A Drink To Virtue used the Eastern four gentlemen flowers - "plum, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum" as key design elements to be relevant with the concept of "four aggregates generate myriads of phenomena" from I-Ching/ the Book of Changes. It draws the seasonal flowers - "Spring orchid, Summer bamboo, Autumn chrysanthemum and Winter plum" as the main concept into the entire design.

Seasonal Treasures used four kinds of plants as a design theme to convey four seasons with four powers. These plants are "peony in Spring, bamboo in Summer, chrysanthemum in Autumn and plum in Winter" that represented respectively "influence, growth, self-control and vitality". They are the four kinds of wisdom and power, of the essence of the overall human life.
