Project Description

Hill for Family

 

Description:

“Hill for Family” is a collaborative work by Jibpool international Limited and the design graduate Maxime Lai through the「DesignXcel」programme and the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association (HKF&DA).

“Hill for Family” is an outdoor bench designed for every member of the family with an eye on the interaction between the parents and children. The stairs design eliminates the discrepancy of height between the two generations, they will share the same eye level. Sitting on different levels but having the same view, children may play with the slightly tilted frames while parents can stay close and next to them.

Both Jibpool and Maxime value the practicality of design to users with special attention to details. To them, however, neither fun nor innovation shall be forgotten.

Since the work targets kids, Jibpool left nothing to chance when it comes to safety. The long bench had been put through mechanics calculations to avoid easy collapse. On the other hand, the stainless steel frame has a baked paint finish. Together with the use of wood for the outdoors, the bench is highly durable. The streamline design and hidden nuts and bolts further ensure safety too.

 

作品Hill for Family是由集寶建業有限公司和畢業生黎芷澄於《設計列陣》計劃和香港傢俬裝飾廠商總會協作而成的設計,並於《設計列陣》展覽中展出。

 

這是一張為家庭中每一成員而設的室外長椅,注重父母和孩子間的互動。階梯設計讓小孩和成人打破身高的差距,享有同等的水平視線。父母和孩子可以坐於不同的階梯,而享受同樣的視感。孩子也可以在微傾斜的背框架攀爬玩耍,同時父母又能夠近距離陪伴左右。

 

集寶建業與黎芷澄同樣重視設計能否符合用家的實際需要,對細節一絲不苟,同時希望將設計的趣味和創新從作品呈現出來。

 

基於作品的主要對象是小朋友,集寶建業對於安全的考慮絕不馬虎。長椅運用力學計算傾斜角度,使其非常穩固,不易傾倒。不鏽鋼的焗漆框架,加上室外木材,能夠承受日曬風化,適合長期室外擺放。沒有銳角的流線外型和巧妙藏好在框架下方的接駁螺絲,都是為了避免讓使用者碰損或擦傷的細心設計。
