AN ODE TO MAHJONG
In partnership with design studio Editecture, JOYCE is celebrating the Year of the Tiger with an homage to the classic Chinese game of mahjong. Offering a fashion-forward and sustainable spin, the mahjong set is handcrafted from black walnut wood and upcycled materials from archival collections by Dries Van Noten, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Thom Browne and Yohji Yamamoto. These exclusive sets are 100% biodegradable. Only twelve mahjong sets have been created, with each piece marked with a limited edition number.
TRAY OF TOGETHERNESS
As part of a second partnership with Editecture, along with iconic Hong Kong confectionery shop Yiu Fung Store, comes the Tray of Togetherness . This reimagined auspicious Tray of Togetherness is inspired by curio boxes of the Qing dynasty. The tray is hand carved from black walnut wood and features engravings of auspicious meanings. These engravings include a Chrysanthemum for luckiness and longevity, a Gourd for fortune and prosperity, a Persimmonsymbol for wishfulness to ensure new year wishes are met, and a Ganoderma which ushers in good health and peace. Adding an element of sustainability, the lid is made from upcycled tangerine peels, a Chinese New Year delicacy, supplied by Yiu Fung Store. The Tray of Togetherness is produced in the very limited quantity of twelve, with each tray marked with a limited-edition number.
