Des i gn C o n c e pt In order to keep openness, the experience areas are defined by white painted frames instead of solid walls. In each experience area, customers can feel the products by various senses, including touching both the raw materials and final products, and hearing the sound in manufacturing process. The contents of experience areas change seasonally to give customers fresh experience.

Design Concept /

Hotel M is a boutique hotel locating in Montreal, a multi-cultural

city. Design for world travelers, who always look for fresh and in-depth experiences. Hotel M expresses different aspects of Montreal, including geographic, cultural information, and local artworks. The purpose is to create an intriguing spatial experience by mixing various forms, materials and colors, and still keep all elements in harmony.

The public space of Hotel M is visually divided into vertical and

horizontal languages, which express in ceiling and floor patterns, architectural elements and layouts. Use circles to show where two languages mix together, and create circular lounge seating resonating with floor and ceiling patterns. The main features of the lobby are two grand stairs with lounge seating, both below and on the extending stair landings, which create various visual experiences in different heights.

Design Concept / The philosophy of School of Industrial Design is “Form follows function”, stated by Louis Sullivan in 1930s. The principle is that the shape of a building or object should be primarily upon its intended function or purpose, which is the foundation of industrial design. The main concept is to create an inspiring learning environment for industrial design students by using rough materials and flexible usage of space and seating.

About INSIDE-OUT “Challenge is what design needs! To come nearer to the perfection, the deep-buried defects are sublimated into essence of the works. We hope the happiness we bring to you outshines the imperfection in the works, if there is still any.”

Concept YODEX is an annual exhibition for rising stars in design departments. As a leader of exhibition design team in Chang Gung University, I led team members to finish the exhibit space design. The theme of our show was “INSIDE-OUT”. We created the contrast between outside and inside by dark grey exterior walls, white interior walls and light. Within the space, the light leaking from stands showed our desire to present our design ability.

CONTRAST

STAND

The main entrance of the exhibition center is at north side. The existing exhibit space is surrounded by three aisles.

Considering the location of the exhibition center’s main entry, we create our entry and image wall at the northeast side to attract visitors. We designed the logo with neon light to catch every visitors’ attention.

In order to create a contrast between inside and outside, we use white interior walls and dark grey exterior walls. Then, we open parts of the exterior walls to allow the inside light to penetrate through to catch visitors’ attention.

Based on the design work’s size, there are three types of stands of different heights. The low stands allow visitors to walk in and to interact with the design works while other stands provide a spacious space for each design work without interruption.

We started from models to test light effect, then we built the wood-frame structures and installed fluorescent light. At last, we installed the stretch fabric and made final corrections.

LIGHTING Based on the concept of INSIDE-OUT, we designed three types of lighting for various use. The light screen brightens up the space and creates the contrast with the exterior wall while the wall and table light provide the light for design works display. The gap light in each stand makes the consistency within the space and provides the light for introduction panels.

The light screen is composed of a wood frame with translucent stretch fabric, to allow fluorescent light to penetrate though.

The light leaks out the gap in each type of stand to create the consistency within the space.

DEVELOPMENT As the leader of the exhibit space design team, I was in charge of the design plan process. First, we came up with lots of concept sketching for the layout, appearance of the stands, and light based on the concept of “INSIDE-OUT�. Then we made 3D model to understand the appropriate size of the stands. In order to arrange all design works, we made a 1:50 model so that we could understand the space between each design work.

PRODUCTION IN YODEX

INSIDE-OUT EXHIBITION IN YODEX

Before the exhibition opened, we only had two days to build the exhibit space. As the leader of design team, I arranged the schedule carefully. We cooperated with carpenters and electricians to install the walls and stands that we made in our school. We repaired any damages occurred during transportation. At last, we installed and tested the fluorescent light and neon light on the image wall.

After two-days preparing, we successfully opened the exhibition. The contrast between white interior and darkgrey exterior caught the visitors’ attention. The neon logo with light on the image wall acted as a showstopper and we earned lots of compliments from visitors. With our hard work, we earned Award of Merit in Yodex Exhibit Space Design Competition.

“HAVSNIVA� means sea level in Swedish. To design a dining chair for IKEA, who pays much attention to climate-change issue, the product needs to be not only affordable, easy to assemble but sending a message to remind people paying more attention on the environment. Havsniva is designed to express the rising sea level which is one of the most severe climate issue by simplifying the iceberg form as the back of seating, ocean blue seating surface and legs. The folding function creates a strong visual impact on the urgency of rising sea level.

Concept Lou Doa is a structure part of a Chinese architecture to support the weight of the roof. By crossing woods, Lou Doa is strong enough to stable the whole building. This chair had a connection with Chinese culture. The first chair with back support in China was referenced to the stable structure-Lou Doa. A chair with Lou Doa in the ancient China taught people to correct their sitting postures as well as their behaviors. Chinese people believe that good behaviors begin with correct sitting postures.Lou Doa Chair was designed to combine Lou Doa spirits with elegant and modern form. Meanwhile, it reminds modern people of correct sitting postures and behaviors.

DEVELOPMENT By understanding those Chinese elements in a deeper layer, we had a whole new attitude toward ancient wisdom. All of the forms in ancient China are not only shapes, but had meanings. We transformed these images into a chair design and tried to combine the meaning and forms of Chinese elements. Also, we used 3D model to adjust the shape.

EXHIBITION Lou Doa Chair was officially selected in several exhibitions, including Sold-Out Exhibition, 2011 Young Designers Exhibition and Up and Coming Designers Exhibition.
