吴恙:别吃了我的沙发

你有没有过这样的经历:周末下午赖在沙发上困意袭来,挪步至卧室就寝,可是睡意瞬间全无!多么痛苦的经历,可喜的是这样的悲剧被吴恙设计的沙发改写了。吴恙的这款智能的沙发,能自动感应使用者是否入睡,如果你睡着了,沙发会自动调节为床的形态,让使用者毫无后顾之忧。

 

吴恙的设计处处体现他对人的关怀,以及对人们所生活的空间的关怀。比如这款荷兰豆沙发,豆荚中藏着几张豆豆形态的小矮凳,平日里藏进豆荚中节省空间,朋友来访时取出使用,我的空间我做主。

 

吴恙说,他曾经饱受噪音污染之苦,因此有了一个低碳建筑创想,建议在楼房浇筑水泥板的时候进行静音处理,为居住着营造静谧的私人空间。用心、用情——饱含朴质情感的设计,往往最能打动人。

朱力行:APP!APP!APP!

@ VOL 20 ON SEP 06, 2014

朱力行设计的这几款APP, 用“炫酷”来形容最恰当不过了。不过,光有华丽丽的前卫外表是不够的,这些APP的丰富内涵让人不得不惊叹于设计师的无边创意。

设计师致力于打造独特的用户体验——通过手指触点手机屏幕,即便五音不全,也可以创作自己专属的音乐,并将自创音乐设为铃声或上传至网络分享。在他分享的另一款软件中,用户“咔擦”自拍出来的照片,通过导入APP之中成为创作的工具,用手指拉伸扭曲照片,音乐就从变幻莫测的脸部表情中流淌而出,你想不想试一试?

魏明:为什么设计?

BY RIPTIDE CULTURE & CITY
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 06, 2014

设计师魏明与大家分享的第一张图上有个大大的“WHY”。为什么要做设计,希望通过设计达到什么目的,处女座的他,把严谨思维和完美主义融入设计当中。

以“为纯粹而设计”和“为商业而设计”为例。他做的一款电子产品,通过透明的外壳将产品内部的元器件都展现在消费者的眼中,毫无遮掩,纯粹成一种境界。商业,不应该成为设计师避而不谈的词儿。“做什么设计都是为了消费者可以买单”,这个观点直截了当。他为大家展示了一款在网站上销售的手表,“原材料的成本不高,但是通过设计提升了产品的价值,带给了使用者独特的体验”,这番话诚恳而实在。

“通过设计触摸未来”是一个较为新颖的观点。魏明认为设计未来是他的一大使命,而科技代表未来,因此在他的设计中可以看到科技的踪影。“现代人离不开通讯工具,从最初的BB机演变成今天的触屏手机,未来是否存在3D的手机?” 这款基于“未来”和“科技”理念设计的手机为他赢得了红点设计奖。

李成:迷人的不确定性

BY RIPTIDE CULTURE & CITY
@ VOL 20 ON MAY 24, 2014

在李成看来,“不确定性”是设计的魂儿,也是设计的根。社会发展日新月异,现代人如果捧着一个原始人专属的青铜器来喝水,一定会被另眼相看,我们回不到过去的生活,也无法延续往昔的生活状态,人类的生活需求在岁月更迭中渐渐演变,如何抓住这种变化,看透生活的“不确定性”,李成认为这是设计师应该思考的一大课题。

“随着社会发展,产品超出了我们过去的预期。”李成通过他设计的产品图片,比如手指咖啡杯,两面拖鞋来展现他赋予产品的新使命。不断超越客户的预期,不妄图去界定一个客户是他所坚持的设计理念。

郑雷:设计好的商业模式

BY RIPTIDE CULTURE & CITY
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 06, 2014

如果你认为设计师的创造力只局限在产品领域,那你就OUT了!“设计好的商业模式”是郑雷的设计团队的亮点之一。电子产品渗透在现代人生活的方方面面,电脑、移动硬盘、充电宝……苦于被各类电子产品所奴役的人们,不妨关注一下郑雷团队所设计的产品。

他通过20张图片分享了为生活做减法的设计理念。其中包括一款可以与所有笔记本电脑兼容的电源,轻薄便于携带,小身材大用途,用过的人都说好。郑雷说,他们除了要做最棒的设计和产品之外,还竭尽全力设计出好的商业模式,力求一条“无短板”的设计链条。因此,执行力显得至关重要。高效高质完成从设计到生产销售的每一个环节,用自身强大的气场吸引业界关注。这种专注的精气神儿,能不点个赞吗?

戴美儿:没有眼镜就不会思考
“没了眼镜就不会思考”,戴美儿的眼镜宣言语出惊人,她是香港时尚眼镜品牌“Genic Eyewear”的创始人,在她的设计理念当中, 时尚、摄影、建筑、音乐或美容都可以作为设计灵感来源。但归根结底,她认为适合的才是最好的。因此,她致力于为塌鼻子亚洲人设计最适合佩戴的个性化眼镜,这个鼻梁上的小小物件,如果选对了可以与佩戴者融为一体,甚至让人觉得离开了它就“不会思考”。

除了分享这独具一格的设计理念,戴美儿还通过图片分享了“Genic Eyewear”品牌推出的多款产品。这些眼镜为切合亚洲人较扁鼻梁,鼻托做得较高,另备有复古形状、浮夸颜色或纹理,令眼镜不止于必需品,而是代表个性的时尚配饰。 戴美儿说,既然要做个性化设计,就要将个性化进行到底。因此她开设了“造一副属于自己的眼镜”工作坊,让参加者只需利用简单工具,花上数小时便能亲手造出独一无二、属于自己的眼镜。


1 Emily Dai: I can’t think without my  glasses
“I can’t think without my  glasses” says Emily Dai, the founder of Hong Kong fashion brand Genic Eyewear. According to her conception of design, fashion, photography, architecture, music and beauty are all inspirational. But she is also concerned with the practical elements of design. For this reason, Dai has dedicate herself to designing the most suitable glasses, particularly for Asians with lower noses.

In addition to sharing her unique design concepts, Emily Dai also shared photos of Genic Eyewear’s different product styles, incorporating retro shapes, flamboyant colours and textures. Dai says: “Good design must be personalised.” Her workshop’s stated aim is “to build glasses that belong to the owner.” Customers need only spend a couple of hours and curtesy of Genic Eyewear, they will have their own unique pair of glasses.

He has been a pivotal in the southern city’s art scene ever since and was an early supporter of Pecha Kucha Shenzhen. At the second Shenzhen Pecha Kucha Night, Teng gave a memorable presentation of cats he’d photographed with their eyes illuminated by the flash in the darkness, after he’d shouted at the feline in order to provoke it to appear afraid. He also talked about his work as an oil painter.
