2020 Design for 20MM Concept

Concept

2π is 360 degree, a round, an end and a start.

Just as this mathematical constant encompasses the full circle, this marble collection draws inspiration from this enduring symbol of unity and completeness. With an experimental approach to shapes, Erco Lai explores the harmony between the revolving and looping forms. Each piece is a testament to the profound continuity encapsulated by the circle, offering not only a visual feast but also a philosophical journey through the intertwined concepts of shape, symbolism, and the never-ending cycle of existence.
