Born in 1974, designer in Shanghai, China. Traditional Chinese motives combined with a modern expression: Zhi Ji has repeatedly turned to this contrast since graduating as a designer. By placing traditional patterns and symbols in the context of clear contemporary forms, Zhi Ji creates unique graphic designs as powerful as the dragon, China’s national symbol. For the design of his milk glass, Zhi Ji has been inspired by ancient mythical elements: Both the phoenix and dragon are ascending together into the sky as a symbol of fortune and confidence in the future. This is the artists first project for Ritzenhoff.
