Hi there, I am Cristina from the editorial team. On the last day of September, let’s take five minutes to look back on our September journey toward art, design and architecture.

Design Projects

 

As a pioneer of the emerging brands of tea drink in Chinese market, HEYTEA blends the territorial symbol and internationalized aesthetic in its new store in Shanghai. HEYTEA knows how to communicate with customers not only in verbal ways but also in spatial ways. Its new store displays the balance between the store’s business performance and the brand’s cultural value.

Another interior design project is about a not-easy-to-find restaurant in Hong Kong. This passion project gives a nod to bohemian lifestyle and provides a luxurious place for street art. You can find the masterpieces of some of the world’s renowned artists, including installations by Vhils, Invader, Kaws and works by Banksy, Damien Hirst, King of Kowloon, to name but a few.

Interview

 

We are glad to have a talk with Japanese woodworker – Yoshitaka NAKAYA. He rejuvenates waste trees in Mount Fuji and creates wooden productions to bond people and nature. The lampshade is one of his representative works. During the process, distortion and twist will happen, and due to different wood material and grain, there are no two lampshades are exactly alike.

We also interviewed Guy Bucchi, furniture designer and maker in New Zealand. He enjoys taking scraps from the nearby scrapyard and off cuts of Kauri wood to create his unique, limited edition chairs and furniture pieces. Some of the wood is extremely old, as swamp Kauri  wood is around 1200 – 45000 years old!

Architect and Architecture

 

At the end of August, we together gained an insight into a new approach in architecture: deconstructivism. It is characterized by fragmentation, surface manipulation, non-rectilinear shapes, and radical manifestation of complexity in a building.

The best example of deconstructionism complexity of this architecture is the Vitra Design Museum designed by Frank Gehry. As one of the most prominent American architects and designers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Canadian-born American architect established his worldwide renown for his audacious architectural philosophy and his innovative explorations of materials and structures.
