It is known as “Stone of Transformation”; spending strength, bringing positive change and gentleness to the heart.

Nature has been continuously solving problems it has been facing for more than 4 billions years. Its beauty is fascinating. As designers, we have a lot to learn and to get inspired from it. The sunflower found its way to optimise the production of its offsprings. It efficiently packed the maximum seeds it possibly can on a given area which generates a beautiful geometrical figure. At first sight, the pattern seems to be symmetrical but it is not. It has its randomness that made each single sunflower unique. This is this uniqueness that we are celebrating.
