瞧古今 - 台北當代設計展
Mind the Gap - Bridging Design and Chinese Tradition

瞧古今-台北當代設計展為TPDG的第一項作品,昨日的世界,今日的生活。一群來自臺北的設計師,懷著偏執而深厚的情感,以大膽新穎的手法,將傳統華人文化重新引介到當今的生活之中。
從2006年起,台灣設計進入文化復興的階段。設計師開始群體反思西方的設計邏輯,嘗試從華人文化脈絡發展設計;以強烈的使命感,再續世代與文化脈絡的斷裂,還原細膩的生活本真。

本次深圳國際家紡暨家居裝飾展覽會所舉辦的「瞧古今」特展,網羅台灣近5年的代表性作品,呈現台灣以設計復興文化的重要趨勢,也邀請由台灣著名設計師組成、策劃這次策展的「臺北當代設計群」,分別從產品、傢具、視覺、空間及策展角度,分享從文化概念走入商業,從地方走上國際的成功路徑,並對比台、港、內地不同的設計思維,以及轉化文化及對接市場的手法。

3/7-3/9 深圳會展中心5F

PiliWu X HAN Gallery X TAIPEI IRON STREET
打鐵英雄設計工作坊 系列活動

在台北⼤稻埕的東北邊,有⼀塊極具歷史意義和特⾊的區域:俗稱⽊材街(寧夏路)和打鐵街(興城街)的帶狀區塊。此地區佈滿了許多中⼩型⽊工和⾦屬加⼯廠,多年來在⼨⼟⼨⾦的台北市中⼼提供加⼯/製作服務,與民生和產業的關聯一直相當緊密。這種位於市中心、極為便利的「創意加⼯街區」或「快速打樣中心」,是世間少有的特殊資源。

這塊被稱為「台北的⼯具箱」的創意加工街區,⾒證台北近百年來的變動,是許多資深市⺠的共同⽣活記憶;不過,由於產業外移和製造型態轉變,此區恐將整體邁⼊歷史,台北將因此失去這個獨具⼀格的特⾊街區。

其實,製造型態的轉變是危機也是轉機。在產業轉向文創、自造者衝擊產銷模式的背後,創意加工街區的便利性,讓台灣的創意人在數位製程之外,還享有街區師父們深厚的手作支援;兩股技術資源若能產生新的連結,將可為國內創意產業,匯集出得天獨厚的實踐基礎。

連結「打鐵英雄」,今年我們以更多元的觀點,網羅PiliWu-Design(家具/工業設計)、只是zishi(影像創作)、和studio if(互動設計)為工作營講師,邀請各界創意人、自造者和業餘木工愛好者參加,在兩天工作營中用觀念較勁,想像運用街區的加工技術,探討文創/自造、數位/類比、手作/量產等相關議題,來為台灣的創意開發創造新的鏈結,以實地走訪街區與腦力激盪下,為創意加工街區注入新的動能。

ROUND-and-FULL-NESS in a Contemporary Sense 當代圓滿

July 25~Aug19, 2012
21, sec 1, Mingshen East Road, Taipei 104, Taiwan

After a long journey exhibiting at the Designmuseo Helsinki and Ventura Lambrate Milan, the first collection of HAN Gallery finally travels back to Taipei, Taiwan to make its first public appearance in its hometown.

The phrase "Round-and-full-ness" in Chinese language means "fulfillment in every aspects of life". It is an idiom commonly used by elder generations, traditionally referring to the overall success in the mundane aspects of life.

The idea of "Round-and-full-ness", so powerful as it has been regarded the ideal way of life for the Chinese, however, is outdated because it is associated with the values of the past generations.

The curating focus of the exhibition follows the central philosophy of HAN Gallery, to re-interpret Chinese culture and to translate them into contemporary contexts with a fresh eye, also to comment on the superficial “modernistic” approach that is overwhelming not only in Taiwan but also in many parts of Asia.

Eight concepts, which were proposed by participating designers in order to contribute to the central theme, are divided into four groups to articulate the phenomenon from their unique, contemporary angles. The themes and the works are, respectively:

VALUES / ATTITUDES
-Plastic Classic, by Pili Wu
-Plastic Ceramics, by Pili Wu

MEMORY / TECHNIQUE
-Mirror Lattice by Tong Ho
-Bamboo Steel Tables by Nendo

SENSIBILITY / DIVERSITY
-Lace Bowls by Gina Hsu
-Brick Plan by Rock Wang

CARE / SUSTAINABILITY
-Bubble Chair by Kevin Yu-Jui Chou
-Calligraphy Screen by Poching Liao

Salone del Mobile Milan: Yii Designers for HAN Gallery

Apr 17~22, 2012
Via Ventura 6, Milan, Italy

Building on Yii’s success in cultivating traditional craft in the contemporary design context, the designers behind the project have moved to an entrepreneurial platform to carry on their research. This new venture explores an even wider scope of the exciting possibilities that lie in the culturally rich Chinese traditions.

The vessel for this new mission is HAN Gallery. (www.han-gallery.com) Yii Designers for HAN Gallery. This April at Ventura Lambrate, HAN Gallery will exhibit its new collection, which will be simultaneously displayed at Design museum Helsinki. In addition to its new collection, special pieces will be on view crafted exclusively for the Salone.

The select group of designers will present newly explored cultural contents, along with past concepts that continue to be developed. Expanding upon the direction of Yii, past prototypes have been redeveloped and are finally available as commercial products. HAN Gallery focuses on and delivers both production pieces and exclusive art works.

Participating Designers:
Gina Hsu, Kevin Yu Jui Chou, NENDO, Pili Wu, Po-ching Liao, Rock Wang, Tong Ho
