詩意韶華家具

東西薈萃-當代美學與機能使用的設計思考

最美好的時光-理性與感性交會的瞬間
The Best Time – The Moment where Rationality and Sensibility Intersect

「詩意韶華」系列是一款以「時光」為主軸設計的家具,以木質材料為本體,包含單椅、茶几、衣架與立燈,共四種單獨形成的構件。我們由1920年代中國文藝青年的生活為起點,思索在那個東西方文明交會、碰撞,舊時代與新思維迸發的時期,家具應當體現出何種樣貌?就如同徐志摩在其詩作中所呈現的:

“Poetic Glamor” Series was a furniture product line with the theme of “Time”, embodied in timber materials, realized in 4 product pieces such as single chair, tea table, clothing rack and floor lamp. The conceptual point of departure was a depiction of the lives of the Youth of 1920’s Chinese Literature Movement, in a search of where the cultures of the East and West shall intersect and collide, as well as the formal articulation of furniture from the new thinking stemmed from its infusion in the old era, as depicted in the poem of Poet, C.M. Hsu,


「我是天空裡的一片雲,

偶爾投影在你的波心,
你不必訝異,更無須歡喜,
在轉瞬間消滅了蹤影。」
“I am a cloud in the sky,
Occasionally projected onto your ripples,
No need for bewilderment, much less for joy,
Suddenly vanished into oblivion.”

 

傳統詩詞中嚴謹的格律、聲韻系統,被源於西方的白話運動所解構,但新詩的創作中,卻仍保有中國字詞對形與物優美的描繪。「詩意韶華」就是這樣的一款設計,兼融了東西方美學的精髓,同時具備了東方傳統感性的優雅、嫻靜,與西方重視理性的多元排列、組合,在當今這個步調快速的年代,希冀透由此一回歸初心的家具設計,讓人們在居家生活中,重新拾遺日常中的藝術與美好。

As what used to be the disciplined rhythmic movement and phonetics in the traditional poetry, was deconstructed by the Western Colloquialism movement, the creation of the New Poetry still preserves the beautiful portrayal of form and objects by Chinese texts. “Poetic Glamor” would naturally epitomize such design, amalgamated with the essences of the Eastern and Western aesthetics, while embodying the elegance and serenity of the traditional Eastern sensibility as well as the Western rational arrayed configuration, and in this fast-paced world, the furniture design envisaged shall be allowing users to reminisce the everyday arts and beauty in their home living.

工藝性的體現-以對比設計營造的感性東方美學
The Manifestation of Craft – The sensible Eastern Aesthetics Built on Contrasting Design

「詩意韶華」系列家具以方正與圓潤、堅硬與柔軟、高矮並陳的理念出發,看似兩相對立的外型與材料,透過設計手法巧妙地以對比形式融合在一起。以溫潤木質材料為主體,鑲嵌、崁入金色銅條與柳葉造型裝飾,創造出雅緻出眾的細膩質感。以九十度直角彼此接合,看似稜角分明的單椅,卻在接縫與扶手內緣以圓弧造型收束,形構出外方內圓的效果,類似的手法也同樣運用於茶几、衣架與立燈的設計上,感性而古典的設計,輔以對比性的形象及材料,讓細節與工藝的質地,藉由當代操作,更具體地以形式的對照調和,回應東方美學的洗鍊精神。

The "Poetic Glamor" furniture series furniture is based on the concept of shapes, texture, and dimension, with contrast in form and material, fused together in contrasting formats through design, With genuine timber materials embedded with brass pieces for outstanding refined finishing. With perpendicular joint technique, the seemingly angled-form single-piece chair may seem supple and round-form in its styling effect, and the similar design approach in techniques can also be adopted in tea-table, clothing rack and floor lamp, as the sensual yet elegant design, complemented with contrasting forms and materials, in a modulated modernized response to the purity in the Eastern aesthetics.

square and sleek, hard and soft, high and low. It looks like two opposite shapes and materials, and is skillfully combined in a contrasting manner through design. With warm wood materials as the main body, it is inlaid with golden copper strips and willows to create an elegant and exquisite texture. At the right angle of ninety degrees, they are joined together, and the seemingly angular single chair is closed in the shape of the outer circle at the inner edge of the seam and the armrest. The similar method is also applied to the coffee table and the hanger. With the design of the vertical lamp, the emotional and classical design, supplemented by the contrasting image and materials, let the texture of the details and crafts, through the contemporary operation, more specifically in the form of contrast control, respond to the spirit of the oriental aesthetics.

空間型態構築-以家具的多元混搭適應當代多樣性
Spatial Form Construct – Contemporary Diversity Modulated with Multiplicity in Furniture

在形體設計之外,不同物件與物件之間的搭配組合,亦是「詩意韶華」系列家具的一大重點,如何讓家具不再受制於既有被賦予的功能運用,同時回應新時代的多元需求,可以透過不同數量、物件的混搭,創造出新的使用方式,也成為我們在設計時所著重的部分。三個向度分別呈現不同高度的衣架,可搭配不同尺度的衣物、鞋帽等配件使用,同時透過數個衣架排列組合,亦可轉而成為屏風,抑或如裝飾牆般的效果。單椅透過兩相組合便可成為雙人沙發,或坐或臥,使用者可依不同方式舒適而自在地躍然其中。同時具備兩種不同高度檯面的茶几,亦可藉組合方式產生不同的使用,這樣的設計除了強調家具的既有機能,也能適應當代生活的多樣性,透過排列組合,家具也可以在空間中扮演要角,形塑出多樣的生活樣貌。

Apart from the formal design, the combination of various objects, has been a key feature in the “Poetic Glamor” Furniture Series, in that how furniture is no longer confined by its given functionality while responding to the diverse needs of the new eras, but through various number of pieces, mix-and-match of items, before creating new usage models, which was the focus of the design process. A series of flexible configurations of the clothing rack spells different facilitation configurations of different clothing and accessories usage, and it may also be converted to a freestanding partitioning screen with decorative effects. The single-piece chair may become double-seat sofa in twin-set combination mode, according to user needs. The combination of tea tables of various heights can be combined to accommodate various usage needs, all of which is not just an emphasis on the existing functionality of furniture but to suit the diverse nature of contemporary life.
