領結椅 Bow Tie Chair

 

 

​緣起

選用積層竹作為創作媒材,大弧度烤彎成形,製作簡潔、現代感的迴圈單元,將十三份組合排列為領結椅成品。
竹片交錯手法形成極富特色的空間結構,同時為坐者提供通風與舒適的感受;此外,巧妙建構座椅和扶手下方置物空間。


領結椅創新竹材結構與造型應用,發揮臺灣竹材特有的彈性與韌性,以東西方皆熟悉文化符號「領結」作為此創作設計意象,期望藉此產生傳播效果引導外國民眾親近竹材欣賞竹工藝。

The seat is produced from a series of 13 sections of bent, laminated bamboo. through repetition, ‘bow tie chair’ delivers a unique combination of simplicity and fashionability. The bamboo is heated so it can be bent into tight curves, a technically difficult process that makes it all the more special.
Three storage areas are present in the object, located directly under the seat and sides. aside from providing usable space, the construction provides constant ventilation for a cool, comfortable seat no matter the temperature.
Inspired by the classic bow tie shape, the design is a repeat pattern. It is like a bridge that connects Western audiences with Taiwan’s local materials. Used an image that’s accessible to Western audiences to fuse a new, intercultural style of design.
