Classical Western philosophers considered fire as one of the four essential elements to life. Fire has played a vital role in almost every culture and religion in the world, from the pre-historic era to the modern age. It has been the source of light to mankind for thousands of years and played a crucial role in the development of our civilization.
Ever since my childhood, I had a keen interest in history. While studying at HKU University of the Arts it became clear to me; I wanted to create products that were inspired by the past.
My research in the history of fire brought me so much knowledge and joy that I wanted to eternalize my connection to the element.
ALBA is an ode to fire, displaying its incredible visual power. It grants the opportunity to play with fire and discover the element that changed our existence, on a whole new level.
