Project Description

Embrace

 

Description:

Marble is a common element in European style furnishing. It can often be seen in the lobbies of five-star hotels and private clubs.

The ability of Lo Man Shan, Fan Kit Shun, and Wong Che Wah to use the fine and elegant marble in home design has earned the appreciation of the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association and Grand Classic Ltd. The two organisation therefore sponsor and guide the students to realise their design.

These students think that home is a warm shelter, a place where people relax from busy life and pressure. They hope that their design would offer users warmth and comfort at home. To “Embrace” its user like a family member, the sofa takes a spherical shape where the arms and back are connected like a ring. The extra large seat can also accommodate its users’ entire body. Apart from the spherical sofa, there is a table in the “Embrace” series. A comfortable and convenient user experience is just as important as its beauty.

 

雲石是常用於歐陸式氣派裝潢中的元素,在五星級酒店大堂、名師打造的私人會所中經常有它的身影。香港傢俬裝飾廠商總會和惠佳有限公司正是欣賞香港知專設計學院幾位畢業生盧敏珊、范傑信及王子華能夠把這高級而典雅的雲石元素融入溫暖舒適的家居感覺當中,所以贊助並指導幾位同學把這個設計製作出來。

 

《設計列陣》團隊率先和香港傢俬裝飾廠商總會會面,提出協作的大方向,之後再找來香港知專設計學院的第一屆傢俱設計學系,多方共同協作,完成作品。

 

幾位設計同學認為家是一個溫暖的避風塘,是人們從忙碌的生活與壓力中逃出來,讓人放鬆精神的地方。他們希望設計的傢俱能給使用者的家增添溫暖舒適的感覺。Embrace是擁抱的意思。作品中的單座位梳化用上市上少見的球形,兩邊手柄與靠背相連,呈一個環抱的狀態,用家坐上這張沙發就如被家人的臂彎包裹着。特大的座位也可以讓用家整個人團於在椅墊上,仿如躺臥於家人的懷抱之中。Embrace是一系列的傢俱,除球形梳化外,還有同樣以雲石為設計元素的茶几,不但美觀,更重要是能夠給予用家一個舒適又方便的整體享受。
