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 perfect complement to the rest of this series, the table takes on the same curved lines of the seats as well as the interlacing polyethylene fibers.

Decorative lighting creates a mood in the garden, allows to draw attention to a beautiful plants or garden sculpture and make sparkle not only fountains and waterfalls, but the stagnant water of the pond.
During the day garden lights by themselves can do decorative functions. In contrast, hidden lights illuminate certain parts of garden only at night, and in daytime they are practically invisible.
In a large garden, night lighting helps to provide private areas, and in small one it visually expands the boundaries. By the way, it is easier to perform knowing the characteristics of light. For example, warm light brings the object visually closer, and cold light conversely makes the object seem to appear further than it is. It is important not to err in choice of lighting scheme for recreation areas such as patio, barbecue, etc.
