The bamboo industry plays an important role
as the Taiwanese people overcame the difficulties in early Taiwan. The country
had earned a large amount of foreign reserves by bamboo products at the time of
the economy booming(so called the Taiwan Miracle).
The bamboo products, though, had been
forgotten gradually as the industrial structure changed, the special
characteristics and nature in bamboo are irreplaceable.
The design of “Interact” is based on the
traditional Chinese wine pitcher, Jue, of the late Shang Dynasty. Jue was
originally used in honoring the courtiers, and then it evolved into an
implement used on dinner party occasions.The conceptual background of
“Interact” is to create a cozy and comfortable place - it is the chair where
people sit while having a nice and joyful conversation. From the wine pitcher
utensil to the furniture of sitting while having a bottle of wine, they both
send the same aroma as the time went by.
The structure is constructed of a circular
shape in order to handle the weights from every angle and thus achieve a
balanced force. With a triangular form as a strong support of the structure.
We use the traditional technique of bamboo
weaving to show the modern sense of flow lines and multi-layer effect in the
exterior design.To express the plasticity and tenacity, Compared to iron stick,
which performs heaviness, bamboo stick shows more litheness.
