Free of all convention, YIN YANG has its origins in the harmony of forms. YIN YANG unites the dynamic opposites of ancient Chinese philosophy into a harmonious interplay of color and form. A work of art that unites two elements into a flowing form was the result of close cooperation between the designer and the development team.
