BASHIBA works on the early edge of new ideas and concepts. We work with intangible materials (light) to create new meanings (invisible though real). BASHIBA Rings stems from a desire to turn some of our ideas into permanent objects that people can wear forever. We simply love the idea of printing our designs with a 3D Metal Printer.
Designed by BASHIBA and printed by Shapeways.
The ocean, and in consequence the waves, can be related to the movement, the temporary, the ephemeral, the fleeting, the flexible and even the random. One of the principal ideas of this ring is to remind us that life can be transitory; but, our actions and attitudes towards it, not necessarily are.
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this."
-- Henry David Thoreau
