    LOUIS VUITTON OBJETS NOMADES

     

     

     

     

     

    作为中国内地第一位受邀为路易威登 Objets Nomades 旅行家居系列设计产品的设计师,周宸宸以将中国云南层层相叠的梯田及美国亚利桑那州天然雕琢的羚羊谷连接到创作时的潜意识中,去思考其背后自然在千百年年间的锻塑,以及让这些地理风貌长存下去的力量,最终将这种能够对抗时间感的力量贯彻到设计和想法,创作出 Signature 系列,一个冒险的、有创造性精神又优雅的载体,去记录和承载情感、历史。路易威登 Objets Nomades 旅行家居系列的设计灵感均来自品牌长达160年的“旅行艺术”以及对其精髓的重新诠释。而随着时代的变迁,旅行在人们现代的生活当中和一个世纪两个世纪以前已然不同,其实它已经变成了一种“冒险的精神”,而这种“冒险的精神”在生活里又在持续激发着人们。那如何勇敢地、优雅地去进行自我生活和人生的“冒险”,其实这些是周宸宸对于 Objets Nomades 甚至是路易威登的一种理解。具体在这个设计里面体现的是去突破、创新,去创造一种尚不存在的东西,而并不是一个常规的、循规蹈矩的这样的事物。而当拥有了这件器物的时候,它其实无时无刻不在体现着、代表着你所拥有在你人生里面的这种价值观的体现。

     

    As the first designer in Mainland China invited for Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades,Frank Chou connects the stacked rice terraces in Yunnan, and the natural carved Antelope Valley to the subconscious of his creation, thinking about the forging of nature behind them over thousands of years, as well as the power to perpetuate these geographical features, which was ultimately incorporated into the design and ideas of Signature series, an adventurous, creative, spiritual and elegant vehicle to record and convey emotion and history.

     

    Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades is inspired by the brand's 160-year "art of travel"and reinterpretation of its essence. With the change of times, travel in people's modern life is different from centuries ago, in fact, it is now becoming a "spirit of adventure", and continuing to inspire people. How to live your life bravely and gracefully in life is actually Frank's understanding of Objets Nomades and even Louis Vuitton. What is embodied in this design is to break through and innovate, to create something that does not exist yet, rather than a conventional and rule-abiding thing. When you own this object, it actually represents the values you keep in your life all the time.

    LONGQUAN CELADON

    龙泉青瓷

     

     

     

     

     

    整个系列采⽤了简单的、并且是⼤众能够读懂的⼏何体,去构建了⼀组颇具雕塑⾊彩的⽣活器,涵盖了包括花瓶、⾹薰、置物盘乃⾄⽇常的⽔杯这些品类;并且在这个基础上,运⽤了现代感的简单线条去装点这⼀组“建筑的外⽴⾯”。当⻰泉的厚釉覆盖在这层“外⽴⾯”时,我们所期待的神奇的事情就发⽣了,整体的线条雕刻在这温润的釉⾯下若隐若现,⼤家能够感受到它的起伏与深刻的同时,被晶莹剔透的⻰泉之釉层层包覆的整体⼜是如此的饱满与圆润。

     

    Together with the Longquan government, the team of Tadao Ando invited 10 estheticians from architecture, literature and art. As the only product designer invited, we select its core and precious part as the material for the design, which is its unique thick glaze -- a technique that is distinctive to porcelain all over the world and made it a quite modern ware look. The whole series applies the very simple and accessible geometry to construct a set of sculptural living objects. On this basis, simple modern lines are used to decorate the facades. Beneath the thick glaze covering, we can feel its outline ups and downs and meanwhile, it looks glossy and jade-like. We hope that this set of ware can be used in daily life scenes and more people will gradually become interested in Longquan celadon and even culture, through the process of letting people own and use it, which is exactly the value we hope to convey through design.

    BIBELOT 哑铃 

     

     

     

     

    如何让非硬核健身优雅地明目张胆的出现在人们的生活画面中,是周宸宸此次想尝试的角度。在古典柱式中,男性柱及女性柱融合了对人体自然线条的描摹,将磅礴雄壮与秀丽优雅的气质通过简约的线条勾勒出。而哑铃作为现代人对健康与追求形体美感的工具,在 Bibelot的线条及结构中汲取了立柱的写意灵感,给与系列对人体力与美的自然向往;通过对罗马柱进行纯几何的解构与重组,堆叠呈现出现代感的雕塑哑铃。在赋予“哑铃”更强烈装饰感和表现力的同时,对于精控重量、重心配平、抗冲击性...是背后反复平衡的必要条件。让哑铃能够作为点缀生活趣味与美感的显眼陪伴,而不再仅仅是被刻意收纳或隐藏的器械,那些对美好状态的向往与努力都值得被看到,枯燥的日常锻炼其实可以变得更有趣和诗意。

     

    How to make fitness gracefully and blatantly appear in people’s life is what Frank Chou attempts this time. In classical column types, there fused natural lines of human body and delivers an atmosphere of majestic and elegance through simple lines.

     

    As a tool for modern people to pursue healthy and beauty, Bibelot absorbs the inspirations from the structure and morph of columns. By means of a geometric deconstruction and reorganisation of the Roman Columns, it is piled into a modern sculptural dumbbell. While giving dumbbell a stronger value of decoration and expression, it is also necessary to take into account of the balance among weight, gravity, impact resistance and others. A dumbbell can be used as a conspicuous companion to light up the interest and beauty of life, rather than a device alone that is deliberately stored or hidden in the corners. Those yearning and efforts for a better state of life are worth seeing. Boring daily exercise could actually become more interesting and poetic.
