What is the Original Concept? 郭胜荣 - 概念的最初是什么?

PRESENTED ON OCT 18, 2014
IN SHENZHEN @ VOL 22

“设计他也讲求天时地利人和” 首先他通过探讨“设计概念的初衷?”, 结合他们之前得过红点奖的作品,设计的起初是在研究老人起居时发现的问题而不是单纯为了设计,等一系列设计案例中的小故事,阐述他认为设计有诸多因素,各 种因素在不同时期、不同环境下对设计的成功与否起到决定性作用,比如时间因素、技术因素、流程因素、经济因素、还有情感因素等,以及产生的设计点,以及不 同项目所涉及的方法、过程都不尽相同。

“It requires right place and right time to design too”.

First of all, he started with a question “What is the original intention of a design concept?”, and analyzed their design which won the Red Dot Prize before. The original intention of the design was not merely for design, but to solve a problem for elderly people when they were doing research on their living condition. By sharing these stories and cases of design, he elaborated his opinions that design was affected by numerous factors that could be decisive to its success or failure in different places and different times, such as time, technical, procedure, economic and emotion factors etc. All the factors affect the design points, different methods for different projects and procedures.

魏明:为什么设计?

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SHENZHEN
@ 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。
