It was another honour of Mindu that our design of Mogu series ( Mogu Stool, Mogu Table ) was invited to be exhibited on Sun Mao Design Exhibition held in Sea World Culture and Art Center, Shenzhen.

明渡新的旅程

在中国的设计之都深圳,我们开设了的新工作室,期待明渡在这里全新的设计旅程!

It's  moving, with no pause in space.

It's growing, circling and cycling in life.

It's a distance, or a dimension.

It's time.

时间 — 年轮钟

它是运动的,在空间中永不停歇。

它是生长的,在生命中循环往复。

它是一个刻度,也是一段轨迹。

它究竟是什么?

它是时间,时间和时间。
