The branded Square reader is black lacquer-like, and features the Chinese symbol for double happiness in red. Inspired by Tam’s ‘China Chic’ style and representative of her personal mantra, two characters for happiness (xi) are joined to express the joy of wedded union. Chinese culture favors equilibrium; yin is balanced by yang, and symmetry is an underlying principle in all realms of design. The ‘Double Happiness’ Square represents the worlds of technology and fashion hand in hand. "I believe this will resonate with customers — it’s cutting edge, and easy to use. It will inspire women to start or grow their businesses," said Tam.
