The ‘Shinno’ tea and coffee cup is made from the finest porcelain of a refined ivory color, and is perfect for the whole tea happening. The design of the subtle and elegantly curved shapes is based on the golden section, and fits very well with the ivory colour of the porcelain. Inside the mug is the symbol of the Flower of Life in silver-grey in the bottom. Flower of life: Starting from one circle, then continuing to be constructed by drawing circles from a point on the circle, a geometric pattern emerges that looks like a stylised flower, called the flower of life. The “Flower of life” is one of the most powerful natural symbols of sacred geometry. She is an ancient metaphor for the connection of all life in the universe. In many world civilizations this “Flower of Life” is known; it is mainly used for vitalizing and stabilizing food products. The guilder snede Since ancient times, the basic proportions of the golden section have always served as the embodiment of beauty and aesthetics. Even today, this perfect relationship can be found in art, architecture, design and elsewhere. The golden section is clearly everywhere in nature, and this is why we apply the principle as a guideline in our designs. This stems from the unity in proportions in which the relation between the larger and the smaller parts is equal to that between the greater whole and the greater part. This ratio, this formula, the ‘Pi’ from mathematics, is 1.618. The Fibonacci series of numbers (and pitches) is based on the same principle, and formulates the properties of growth processes as they can be found in nature; for example, in the leaves and the flower. From this also come left and right rotating spirals, in proportions from 8 state to 13, or 21 state to 34 (all belonging to the number series of Fibonacci). When these numbers are shared, the result is always 1.618, our concept of Pi, or the golden section. All our glass and porcelain is carefully designed in accordance with this golden section, so that each article looks pleasant and energetically corresponds to the flow of life energy.
