Design Institute │ Make the furniture stolen from the museum into furniture? Sebastian Errazuriz Humor x Aesthetics Formula

By
Author / Alice Chan, Sia. Design and art have always been the channel to interpret visual aesthetics. In addition to the outline and appearance of the work, it is perhaps the physics of the artist and the designer to think and perceive the meaning and structure of life. And even emotional experiments. It can be as pure as meditation, or it can be neurotic-like and frenzied; through the creators to smash or stack ideas in the brain, through different experiences and understanding, to establish a unique thinking and world view. Sebastian Errazuriz, who was born in Chile and now settles in New York, travels in both art and design. He can be called a speculative artist. He can also say that his works are transforming artistic expressions into design vocabulary. In the seemingly minimalist studio, there is a neat design logic, and there are hidden personal details of the game; the neon works of "I LOVE YOU/ I LOVED YOU" on the wall are covered in words. Emotions, but full of humor and irony. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. Responding to the above explanation of his creation, Errazuriz's own creation, as if the algorithm is automatically activated, reorganizes the abstract and non-physical knowledge and thoughts around the existentialism, psychology, politics, and social issues, or from the Renaissance. The angle of the period cuts into an elegant formula that breaks through the framework without losing visual impact. "Life is very short. When faced with death, why not bring style into life and scream at heaven." He is not obscuring the boundaries between art and design. He just enters these two fields with his own desires. To turn the pictures and even the inner thoughts that we have seen in our lives into a visual experience and story. ANYTHING YOU DESTROY WE WILL REBUILD|Stealing the Greek and Roman statues from the museum ANTIQUITY SHELVES NIKE, 2018. I used 3D scanning technology to steal these classical statues that I loved and respected from the museum. ANTIQUITY SHELVES NIKE, 2018. I used 3D scanning technology to steal these classical statues that I loved and respected from the museum. A towering "eagle" around the headless statue of the Greek goddess Nike is like waiting for the restoration of the museum. The meaning of art is constantly being questioned in every movement in the history of art. Whether it is the British Museum, the Louvre or the Vatican, the statue that is ruined by war or against time, "we will naturally think They are going to protect and rebuild them.” However, for the purpose of reconstruction and protection, there is also a gap between these works of art and people.

For thousands of years, humans have followed the vitality and energy of the earth to enhance their knowledge and develop a "people-oriented" economic value system under the wave of industrial manufacturing. However, excessive resource demand eventually caused the earth's mother to exceed the load, and the pleasant living environment has become a glory yesterday. We are sweating under the umbrella of skyscrapers, like a sigh of sorrow. When deforestation, reclamation and land reclamation, when only the consortium of immediate interests is seen, I am still "developing" around the world. The residents of the southeastern countries of the four countries have already awakened the first step, and the word "environmental protection" has been rushed into daily life and even led the trend. .

The residents of Sakagami-cho also realized that the greenhouse gas and toxins caused by the garbage incinerator caused damage to the environment and food crops. In 2003, they launched the “Zero Waste” campaign and decisively abolished the garbage truck system. Garbage is taken to a unified recycling center in the town. In addition to reducing incineration and driving expenses, the 45 waste sorting projects set up so far have succeeded in making waste “recycled and reused”; the town even announced that it will phase out waste incineration and landfills by 2020. Recycling has become a habit that residents have become accustomed to, and now the town has reached nearly 80% resource recovery rate.

Affordable "Design Award": Japanese Centennial Stationery Design KOKUYO

By

"See people first to see their things. Of course, there is no need to say what the shoes and bags are.

The impeccable appearance and the exquisite and ideal circle of friends are the "social personalities" that modern people strive to create. But what really matters about taste and temperament, perhaps in the details of the mountains and dew - such as a well-designed shirt, a chic bedside lamp, a durable and durable pen. When you are not looking for others, when you are alone with "self", you are also intimate with the details of life. It can be simple, but it should not be compromised.

Zaha Hadid's only private home design debuts in Moscow Forest! The space ship building built by the Russian tycoon

By

If you have an unlimited budget, which architect would you like to invite to design your home? For Vladislav Doronin, a Russian billionaire and CEO of OKO Group, who is also a real estate company, Zaha Hadid, who is good at converting fantasy images into real existence and giving the building a sexy streamlined "architect", is undoubtedly The best building trader in his heart. Unlike Zaha Hadid's other public design projects, as the only private residential design in his lifetime, this stylish villa, hidden in the forest town of Barvikha, Moscow, also has Zaha's striking architectural dance lines, but more appropriate to describe it. It is like a spaceship that landed in the world. Capital Hill Residence full of future technology (Capital Hill Residence is the only private residential design project that Zaha Hadid participated in during her lifetime, she died in 2016, and then was built by the construction team partner and partner Patrik Schumacher). The exterior of the white building is surrounded by lush green forests. Although the area is known as the Russian version of Beverly Hills, Vladislav Doronin has spent a lot of money to buy vast land and deliberately avoid the sight of the neighbors. With a strong focus on privacy, he hopes that Zaha Hadid can create a house that does not interfere with anyone and can "get up in the morning and open his eyes to see the blue sky"; and because the surrounding forest is 20 meters high, in order to achieve This requirement, the highest point of the house must at least break through this height. Unlike the construction of a spacious but low-end villa, the most distinctive feature of the Capital Hill Residence itself is its mobility, which not only coordinates with the adjacent hillside landscape, but also focuses on satisfying customers. The need to put the tower concept into the building to create a top floor space that rises to the sky and is 35 meters high, allowing people to enjoy the endless natural beauty indoors. The villa is divided into four floors. The basement is mainly for leisure space, including sauna and fitness area. The ground floor includes living room, dining room, kitchen, indoor swimming pool and garage. The second floor is the main entrance and hall. The rooms, library and children's room are also on this building; the third floor on the top is used for the main bedroom and lounge, as well as the observation deck.

Above the border, swim across the blue sky and the world: The Wall House

By

The Portuguese Riviera is full of sea breeze. In the 19th century, King Louis I of Portugal had a summer residence in this area and on the outskirts of Lisbon. In the modern Riviera, the coastal town of Cascais, which is a fusion of the ancient city, is home to a minimalist residence, The Wall House; the vast greenery of national parks and golf courses. In the air, the sun, the wind and the water, dress yourself up. In the nineteenth century, Louis I abolished the crime of death and slavery. This concern for the king of the people led the holiday style of Cascais, so that Riviela is still a holiday paradise for Europeans until today. Leisurely and Yuyu, the sea breeze on the Atlantic coast and the beaches of Weihai, the waves beat the rocky reefs, which is different from the rest of Portugal. The black and white staggered tile floor and the street of the ancient city are interspersed with the detached villas along the coast and the colorful and lovely ancient houses. The boat yachts docked in the two are intertwined into a holiday scenery; the impression of the 18th century Nanfa seaside resort continues. Riviela became synonymous with the ocean wind; the summer wind boasted, people can not help but sleep. The minimalist private house, The Wall House, built by the Guedes Cruz Arquitectos architectural team, stands in the coastal town of Cascais. "It's like a castle, but it's made of glass and wood instead of stone. The castle not only provides defense, but also the greenness of the symbiosis and the Atlantic sea breeze," the design team explained. The private fort with wood, cement and glass can be connected to the outside world, The Wall House can also pick up the inner wooden walls for privacy; when opening to the outside, the full-faced special glass is completely open to welcome the cool breeze and sun on the Atlantic coast. Look at the green field that I don't know. The most iconic of the entire building is the double-glazed pool with overlapping glass. The first pool is the same height as the ground, and looks like a sky blue glass; on top of it, the second pool of water extends from the other side of the roof – lift a little courage, jump in, boldly slide over the water, from the ground Looking up, the figure that glides over is like a blue sky, clouds and water, and the shimmering reflection of a room gives the magic of a sun. Entering the interior of this low-key, arrogant home, from the bathroom to the wine storage room, kitchen, etc., all in a reasonable space arrangement, giving the home owner a solid life function comparable to the building's appearance. The layers are stacked and hollowed out to open the indoor and outdoor borders; the use of a large number of glass allows the room to be under the sun in the daylight, and the space is full of light. The double-layered L-shaped cross-pool with internal and external open spaces and natural integration is integrated with the low-key and solid beauty of the clear water model; the spiral ladder running through the whole building makes the moving lines of the first and second floors and the basement unobstructed. The indoor garden developed by the spiral ladder echoes the greenery of the outside world, and even the retro green old car parked in the basement is the perfect embellishment. In The Wall House, the wall does not lock a modern architectural bunker, but embraces the surrounding with a transparent border. Outside the border, the visual swims across the grass; above the border, swims through the sky and the world. All images via dwell unless...
