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.
「Create Cures 创造治愈」是由 Frank Chou Design Studio 创始人周宸宸联合多位知名设计师发起的一项公益活动，旨在以设计师的方式，促进公共卫生的发展。Create Cures 简称 CC，CC 也是在医疗中常用的计量单位，这也是寄寓参与的每个人能够尽自己的一份力，发一点光，成为一个更美好未来的开始。周宸宸设计的消毒灯将玄关日用托盘与消毒灯结合到了一起。使用者回家时，可以自然将手机、钥匙、钱包等携带大量污染物的日常物品放于托盘中，按下罩体激活内部的紫外线光源，通过罩体内部的反光涂层，令消毒光线360度覆盖，以实现无死角消毒。60秒后罩体将自动弹开，日用品将会再次呈现在人们的视野，方便寻找及取用。Create Cures 参与设计师：ABOVE，BENWU，陈旻，陈福荣，Damian O'Sullivan，RawColor，孙大勇，王子侨，周宸宸，章俊杰，朱晖，曾熙凯。欢迎更多设计师/团队加入Create Cures！了解更多：www.create-cures.com

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.
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.
