有鱼就有家

有鱼折叠凳设计说明
Project Name: Yu
Primary Function: Folding Stool


有鱼的设计灵感来自鱼形态,鱼在中国家庭象征着吉利富裕的意思,我们希望赋予折叠凳一个新意义,让它不再只是一个简单的功能性的折叠凳,更代表了吉祥富裕的美好祝愿。尝试了新的折叠结构和加工工艺,让产品在拥有功能的前提上更具有家庭环境的装饰作用。

Inspiration: The starting point of this project is design a beautiful folding stool. Which means the stool is no longer put in the corner or storeroom after being used, it can be a decorative item displayed at the room. To achieve this goal, we need to find a shape to keep it beautiful before and after folding. After referring from Chinese culture, we find fish can fit this requirement which is symbolized lucky and wealth in tradition. We hope to give it a good meaning hanging on the wall.

设计研究
Research


“鱼”折叠凳项目的设计工作中,研究大量的实木加工工艺,总结各类折叠家具的收纳结构,分析用户的产品使用习惯,以及对中国家庭文化进行深入思考。
鱼形态的提取与凳子折叠结构的合理运用,是整个项目中最耗费时间很精力的部分,我们需要保证我们根据用户人群所设定的产品功能,再结合鱼元素的造型设计。设计工作中往往顾及到了这一点却牺牲了另一点,想要它有最简化的折叠使用方式,稳定的受力结构,漂亮独特的外形,完美的故事传达。
In the design work of this project, we studied a large number of solid wood processing technology, summarized the storage structure of various types of folded furniture, analyzed people usage habits, and conducted in-depth thinking on Chinese traditional culture.
It is the most difficult part of the whole project to distill the fish characteristic and keep the rational use of the folded structure of a stool. We need to ensure that our products are designed according to the product features set by the users, combined with the fish element design. Design work often take this one point at the expense of another point, want it to have the most simplified folding, stable force structure, beautiful unique shape and a perfect story to convey.
