The number 8 carries with it a rich and diverse array of connotations. Considered a lucky number in Asian cultures, the number eight symbolizes good fortune, ambition and power. Doubled, soothsayers see it as a four-leaf clover, which is also a widespread symbol for good luck. In the 88 RUE DU RHONE logo, the double 8 represents the face of a watch with the hands indicating 10:10, a nod to the watch making tradition. When positioned horizontally, the eight is the mathematical sign for infinity, thanks to the endless flow of curves that feed into one another, forever.
