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

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idea of "Round-and-full-ness", so powerful as it has been regarded the ideal way of life for the Chinese, however, is outdated because it is associated with the values of the past generations.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