"If you can  make it possible for a Flower to blossom on the Stone, you will get a life lasting Spring."

The concept is to make Flowers bloom, during the exciting process of creating an outstanding experiences in designing.


To unite traditional craftsmanship and contemporary digital technologies, we created designing and crafting process that included  insightful symbolic thinking approach,  intelligent application of materials, as well as a high performance computer modeling and CNC milling with unique algorithm.

Rock Chairs

We used 3D scans of real stones from the shore of Japanese Sea, Elm wood, grown in Russian Taiga and paint similar to the one used for creating Khokhloma pieces. We combined these techniques to create our creative experiment, full of "rock and roll" energy, vivid  traditional symbolism encompassing deep meanings.
