Oriental charms embraced by elegance, subtleness, serenity and tranquility are delivered by designers Yi Chen and Muchen Zhang; the figuration, aesthetic form and spiritual conception of oriental style are reinterpreted by these two designers and infused them into creation. They constructed an artful and self-fulfilled space design work, it all along bear oriental spiritual pursuit of “show high ideals by simple living; Non-quiet without causing much”, and also corresponds to Chinese traditional aesthetics of “Unification between human beings and Nature”.
By using contemporary design language to accomplish Chinese traditional culture and annotate designers` unique but irreplaceable belief of “Zen”, each visional element, delicately arranged by the designers, are expressing its spirituality and poetics to satisfy our longing needs for beauty. This project is a exploration for symbolization, deconstructed and recombined Chinese traditional architectural bracket system (Dou Gong), to show a newer design pattern. Designers adopted creative modes from Chinese landscape painting theory, such as splashing, panorama, livable landscape. With abstract white lilac; visual elements are being boldly applied to the design, having lilac blooming in the towering central void providing a new visual image with aesthetic significance. The visual impacts together with oriental artistic features allow the natural elements in the space to be more harmonious and gentle which are different from the traditional oriental style.
