Retaining traditional fine craftsmanship: Shanghai’s gossip girl Zhou Wei’s old artifact pursuit tour

By

Zhou Wei and our café in Nanjing East Road, the most popular neighborhood in Shanghai, are filled with a Chinese gossip and she is full of love. The inner heart is full of old souls full of love for traditional groceries. After leaving the company in 2011, which was upside down and full of fast fashion, Zhou Wei decided to listen to her own voice, leave the air-conditioned room, walk out of the high-rise jungle in the city, and start her field trip to find traditional hand-made objects. Unlike the e-commerce or brand of the new generation, you can find the traces by easily entering keywords on the Internet. Traditional handicraft workshops or old grocery stores are only in the most simple way to be embedded in life and real lanes, want to find them. The only way is to walk to the door of the shop in person. "You must not drive because you have missed a few alleys in the village." Zhou Xiao smiled and shared the experience accumulated over the years. "The best way. It is to take a long-distance bus, and each station gets off the train and drills into the lane to find a circle." At the same time of the visit, Zhou Hao also bought it, often ending the day, and also carrying a small basket carrying a bamboo basket, straw hat and earthen bag. Waiting for someone else's seemingly inconspicuous, but satisfying loot to return home. Although only the Greater Shanghai area is used as a field, the difference between the generations and the dialects of the villages often makes Zhou Yi impressed. "There was a time when the Fengxian District near the seaside encountered an entire family of aunts who were weaving. They were big. Sitting in the living room in a circle, chatting and weaving, although they are all Shanghainese, but the local voices they chatt with are too heavy for me to understand, but also have to send their sons to translate (laugh)." But the most What Zhou Wei was surprised at was not the difference in language, but the everyday clothes that the aunts wore and they felt ordinary. "I just saw that the aunts only had a kind of simple intimacy. When I looked closely, I found out that They don't wear the ready-to-wear clothes on the market, but the clothes made from their own hand-woven fabrics! It's too memorable." I grew up in the Shikumen alley, and I moved away until I was 18 years old. Zhou Wei’s Growing up memories are everywhere worthy of the taste of the Shanghai style. In the alley of Shanghai, there is usually a grocery store selling everything, hand-made utensils, small snacks, candied fruit, etc., even when the home phone is not popular, there is a public phone, and there is a call to find someone. The grocery store owner will open his throat and shout out who will pick up the phone, so who lives in what industry, the neighbors are familiar with each other. "Everyone knows that Shanghai people used to wear pajamas to go out. In fact, because there is no difference in privacy/public space between the old people, the old Shanghai people feel that even if they go to the grocery store, they feel that it is still my home." I said with emotion, "I have visited a grocery store in other places. After chatting, I found that a master who supplies a bamboo basket lives next door to my house, and I don’t even know it. If it was in the previous hall. It is absolutely impossible to happen." Four years ago, Zhou Yi gathered the hand-made masters and groceries visited by the field to form the book "Shanghai Grocery Shop", and continued to write the column of the same name for the "Xinmin Evening News". At the time, the hand-picked people were the youngest in their 50s, and the oldest was over 90 years old. In the past few years, Zhou Wei still visited them from time to time, but nearly 1/2 of the more than 20 grocery shops or master craftsmen. Has been closed for retirement. Zhou Wei said with a shallow smile, "What I can do is to use records to leave what they once existed. I hope that even if they gradually disappear into their daily lives, don't disappear too quickly in the memory of our generation. "." This handcrafted use is smart." Master Chen is 71 years old. I am a blacksmith. I started to learn to knock on lead (white iron) at the age of 17 and follow the teacher in the factory. I usually practice when I get off work. Later, when I was laid off, I started to pick up my own work. It has been more than 50 years now! It takes 8 hours a day now. It’s not very hard to do this. It’s hard to beat and beat, so it’s not a physical activity, but I’ve just been learning that the hand has been bleeding and the adhesive plaster is full. The sizes that are often done are already in my mind. Others are more complicated. If people have requirements, I will draw them and ask if they want this thing. There are 6 sizes like watering buckets, which can be customized according to different needs. If the hole on the head is a little smaller, the water will be poured a little farther, and if it is a little bigger, it can be poured close, and each person's request is different. I have brought three apprentices, but I have not done it now. I think this is making money slowly. The spoon used for making radish cakes and oil blocks in the store sells best, 5 yuan a day. If you have a day, you can do 50, look at the mood. On the holidays, like the Peach Blossom Festival, there are many people, and there are many foreigners. I have already made a name for myself. The business is very good. The new field is my family. Every day someone orders something with me and earns some money. Kung Fu money, eating and drinking is no problem. "Only you can sell your own, you can call it a workshop"|Yang Shifu is 70 years old, and he is a craftsman. We call this "round work" and specialize in round things. There is also a kind of "Fang Zuo", which is made of chairs and furniture. I studied art with my master at the age of 16 and now I have 50...

The seclusion philosopher in the old house of the millstone: the beautiful corner of the Xiamen Street in Taipei, the habitat of the immortals

By

The goods in the store are the objects that the manager has seen, bringing back stories and beautiful objects. Through the space display, they re-visit the public in a different way and convey the style of the owner of the store. taste. In the drizzle morning, I came to the Qixian furnishings/selection store. Just like the name of the store, "Xi Xian", hiding the old house space on the second-hand furniture street, everyone must follow the narrow stone staircase. There is a sense of "the immortal habitat" in this place. All kinds of lamps in the dim space, bright warm yellow tone, those wooden furniture and glass objects, also with a distinctive attitude, describe the beauty and lifestyle of the subject. From the collection to the furnishings of the creators, when talking with the store manager on the second floor to talk about the business content of Qixian, the owner Sophie has quickly changed the position of the furniture on the third floor; after sitting down, she shared the wall with us. The calligraphy inscription of the calligrapher Lin Yan, which is both simple and modern, appeals to her. "I feel that beautiful things have a common language," Sophie said. From the time of the student, he often used to dig treasures in the flea market, and often used his own room as the experimental field for the change of furnishings. Even after studying in the clothing design department and then living in France, he experienced the window design in the department store and even went to the brand. With a variety of image design and other work, Sophie continues to use a variety of beautiful language through "collection" and "articles." Sophie, which has a very high sensitivity to space, like "space detective", often enters a space and can quickly "scan" the selection and decoration of objects through the personality of humidity and light perception space. She used to run restaurants and shops in the past, but also because of the unique view of the space, and was promoted as a consultant by the boutique brand. With the specialization of space furnishings, Sophie established the Qixian Design Studio in the old house of the Japanese occupation period, which was originally used as a home in 2016, and began to extend its preference for beauty to provide interior design and display design services. In 2017, the company operated the "Hao Xian Furnishing / Prescription" on the original site to show more space imagination in combination with the combined operation of selection, meals and display. Furnishing with the essence of things "I am a person who likes change very much." Sophie laughs heartily, and every time people come to the habitat, they can find the unique furnishings of each corner, which is the best proof. She is not a professional background in interior design, but also provides related design or space furnishings services, and has studied many books related to aesthetics and design. Since the establishment of the studio, Sophie believes that the most important thing in display design is to understand the needs of the owners and to communicate in a way that is closer to people. "I also read Fengshui and Yijing." In order to be built in a cultural language close to others. Suitable space. At present, the furniture and furniture that can be seen in Qixian are composed of non-specific areas and styles, all of which are collected by Sophie from all over Taiwan. "Whenever I want to bring back something, I always imagine what I have seen the best of this kind of thing." Sophie immediately pointed to the wicker chair I was sitting on and began to study its proportions and chairs. The design of the back curvature and the arrangement of the lines, for her, the choice is to "see the essence of the object". By interpreting it, we can choose the one that I feel is the most worthwhile to take away. The same is true of furnishings. When Sophie shares the method of setting up the space of the immortal, it starts from the interpretation of the object, and then finds the corresponding association in the space, including the proportion, material and color. She also used the experience of brand work in the past to show that "fostering is a desire", just as the brand creates people's sense of identity and encourages people to have a desire to consume. "So I have a lot of desires." Sophie looked at the space in front of him and said with a smile. . At the end of the visit, the dark sky gradually brightened. When we returned to the second floor, we suddenly found that the decoration changed with different light perceptions and atmosphere. Like the name of this space, Sophie seems to have a magical power, can create a fickle corner like a fairy, so that people can see a new landscape in each turn.

When I arrived in Copenhagen, my ears were like wearing automatic noise-cancelling headphones... It is no exaggeration to say that this is the quietest and slowest capital city in the world. Even if thousands of bicycles are flying away from their side, they will only stay. The sound of the wind. There are also many people walking, walking through the Renaissance castle, or taking a beer at the pier and chatting while embracing the sun. Time seems to be non-existent here. Doing these pleasant things is good or bad, regardless of age, as long as you feel comfortable. The beauty of Copenhagen is born, like the girl there, without any carvings, it is beautiful. No matter where your eyes go: streets, modern subway stations, balconies built in the 17th century, well-decorated restaurants... anywhere in the city, you can be in a 3D stereoscopic Nordic home.

Design is the soul of Denmark, and the most important element of life for them. Everything is designed for a better life. Tracing back to the source, the Danish design style was born in the 1920s.

They have a very good vision, they like to be clean and low-key, and they can always properly place the "elegance". With almost all-color pearl white walls and light-colored floors to increase the clarity of the space, the furniture is usually very simple and practical, and the lights are equipped with several common wooden chair masterpieces. All of this is to increase the time of "Hygge" (Hygge refers to enjoying happy time with family or loved ones, usually accompanied by food or candles to create a warm atmosphere), because the long and dark winter is extremely difficult, "hygge The thirst for them makes them like to light candles, share wine with friends on the sofa, accompany them with beautiful household items for a long time, and when they fall in love with them, it makes people feel happy and warm. If you look closely, you will find that even the most conservative institutions in Denmark, such as banks, schools, theaters, etc., use Louis Poulsen's lights, the airport lounge is filled with works by Danish design master Arne Jacobsen; and in Copenhagen On the main shopping street, Strøget, there is even a design department store, Illums Bolighus, which sells design items. The four-storey building covers contemporary design furniture, household items, and monochromatic fashion and accessories. Look at other areas and design is never absent. From Nørrebro's thrift store to the new apartment in front of the harbour, wherever you dine, the food is always presented in the most beautiful way, with different materials, sleek candlesticks to decorate the tabletop, wildflowers that effortlessly complement the vase – even the man Without aiming at any street, it will still fall into an impromptu design journey.

Aesthetic Research Institute | Depicting the minimalist landscape in life with the desktop square

By
We use a variety of ways to define life, but it is inevitable to recognize that everyday is full of all kinds of ridiculous "little things." Those trivial and annoying plots are always going on from time to time: after work, I want to open a bottle of ice beer to relieve my body's depression, but when I open the cupboard, I have to go to the bottle opener to hide the hidden detective game; I will be satisfied with the new book. Putting on the bookshelf, the book file is falling off like a face, the messy desktop makes people just want to sigh; or on weekends, I want to have a romantic candlelight dinner with my lover, but the candle is often weightless, and the tenderness is sweet. It became an urgent need. When minimalism enters daily life, the ideal situation is close at hand, but there are still so many "compromises" in life. Founded in 2014, the Brooklyn Art Design Studio Richard Clarkson Studio is inspired by the production of experimental products in the past (magnetic floating clouds, refracting lamps), and has recently moved closer to the "art of living" field. At the beginning of 2017, the studio created a new normal design project - "Executive Objects", which is based on the boundaries between the desktop and the target, which is aimed at common tableware, with simplicity and elegance. Design concepts such as geometry, sculpture, etc., show extraordinary design in the ordinary life process. Bloc|The opener is made of brass. The square "Bloc" is a rectangular sculpture at first glance, but it is actually an invisible bottle opener. Take a closer look, one side of the square has a hand-cut opening, which can perfectly grasp the bottle cap and open it; it can be used as a golden yellow embellishment on the tabletop, and the weight of some sediment can also be used as paper. Town, with a modern style stamp on the desk, bar or window sill. Interestingly, the design team's logo is stamped on the flat opening and forms a vivid and cute face with the four-corner screws. The size of the Bloc can also be used as a coaster. In order to maintain the consistent simplicity of the metal, the surface is discarded with extra carvings, and it can be compared with a variety of plates and mugs to create a low-key luxury home style. The 15 oz bottle opener may be a little difficult to hold on the hand, but the design team selects the most ergonomic shape and angle based on its weight, allowing the user to enjoy the rectangular opening bottle once they master the opening tips. The convenience and practicality brought by the device. Poise|When the candlestick burns, the candlestick is most afraid of falling due to an inadvertent collision; then, if the candle is embedded in a dish like a tumbler? The Richard Clarkson Studio team draws on the studio's past experience of combining water and electricity conflicts, trying to rebalance the "quiet" and "sloping" pulls and creating a challenge to the existing concept candlestick - "Poise" . We are committed to making life's design a carrier of kinetic energy, rather than always through "sports." The studio went through a series of experiments on size, shape and material, and then decided to use a 6-inch diameter concrete hemisphere as the base and a brass socket in the center to secure the candle. Poise candlesticks balance in a tiny area like a needle through a tangent to the surface. Looking at the visual effect between the candlestick and the candle, it is like a ballet dancer, standing on the stage with his fingertips, showing the ingenious stance of "en pointe", reflecting the balance of elegant art atmosphere. Lean|The booklet "Lean" was inspired by the hanging table legs designed by Italian designer Luis Arrivillaga (assembled by the weight of the tabletop and the angle of the table legs), this functional device method for furniture The need for screws and glue is eliminated, and the diversity of home furnishings is enhanced. The bookend with the name LEAN also embodies the same principle. It only uses a slim bracket as the body, but it can be easily inserted into a 12mm - 18mm thick shelf or tabletop, compared to the common two ends. Book files, LEAN only need one end to support the weight of the book. Usually placed on the table, watching it lie down in a slight angle, like a pleasant and interesting decoration; only when the book leans on it, will it be firmly locked into a perfect office partner. Node|The hook that hooks a golden dot is named "Node". As an important structural element in the transportation system, a node usually represents the starting point or the ending point in the path, and sometimes it may be a transit point. According to this concept, the studio regards the hook as a node between the connected item and the item, minus the complicated disposable hook, and also uses the solid brass as the material to "place" the item on the wall; Place any item, divergence a little like the art of decoration, irregularly scattered and don't have a style. With a simple and elegant appearance and a highly movable installation method, users can be creative and make the wall a private art space, planning a miniature exhibition called “Life” and full of personal style. Spoke|What can you imagine for a dish that can be seen everywhere? The studio was inspired by New Zealand's modern furniture designer David Trubridge to create a stunning flat dish, "Spoke", inspired by the "flat" material on the lighting. The whole is made of brass and consists of a solid disc and 20 long sticks; the side of the disc has 20...
