Project Description

Passing On

 

Description:

Hebe Wong’s design is inspired by the Chinese culture of passing on. “Passing On” is a chair as well as a work of art that decorates a homo. When a user spins the funnel-shape chair and the hook, the red rope will follow. This represents the concept of passing on to the next generation.

Hebe is excited and grateful that her design is supported by the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association (HKF&DA) and S&C Furniture Ltd. from ideation to drafting and then to final realisation. She has learnt a lot about communication skills with the factory and adjusted design in accordance with the needs of the users.

S&C Furniture sets out to implement life aesthetics in home products. Hebe’s work combines tradition, art and aesthetic concepts like how a history book narrates Chinese culture and heritage through furniture.

黃紀圖整個設計源於中國傳承文化的概念,設計的「傳承」既是櫈子,又是家居裝飾的藝術品。當用家轉動漏斗型的櫈子及掛勾時,帶動繩子,以紅繩連繫,把傳承的意念呈現出來,延續給下一代。

 

黃紀圖對於自己的創作獲得香港傢俬裝飾廠商總會和方圓傢俱的支持,由設計理念、設計草圖到小小的模型變成一比一大小的真實傢俱,她表示非常興奮和感激,過程中亦學會了如何與廠商溝通、如何更切實地考慮用家需要而調整設計。

 

方圓傢俱致力於把生活美學融入家居產品,黃紀圖的作品揉合了傳統、藝術和美學概念,恍如一本歷史書,以傢俬訴說中國文化觀念和習俗。
