The Seigaiha (Wave)
This is the first installment in a series we're calling Origins. It of course has nothing to do with the X-Men comic series.
We're referring to the origins of symbols and patterns we constantly see in the sphere of design. But despite their prevalence, many of us are unaware of their wider history and significance.
Let’s begin with Japanese symbols and patterns. Japanese symbols and patterns have become popular in the past few decades in Western design. Many of us have seen these symbols on kimonos, t-shirts, signs, interiors, fashion and in other facets of design. So why not on phone cases?
The symbol we would like to focus on in this installment is the seigaiha (wave). The seigaiha or wave is a pattern of layered concentric circles creating arches, symbolic of waves or water and representing surges of good luck. It can also signify power and resilience. The wave symbol or motif was originally used in China on ancient maps to depict the sea. In Japan its earliest appearance was on the clothing of a 6th century haniwa (funerary terracotta clay figure). It continued to be used as a symbol on clothing, particularly kimonos, for over a thousand years and also in ceramicware, lacquerware, then later in graphics design.
The use of turquoise effectively echoes ocean waves.
