品物流形的三位主设计师张雷、Christoph、Jovana和他们的团队在余杭寻找着中国设计的方向。他们花费两年的时间走访了12个村落并和传统工匠一起工作,以研究自然生活方式与传统工艺材料,并基于此开始重新思考“传统的未来”。本次展览的十件作品,是基于余杭的竹、清水丝棉、陶瓷和竹纸四个传统工艺进行重新设计。

The three lead Designers Zhang Lei, Christoph John and Jovana Bogdanovic and their team spent two years of extensive research on Yuhang’s natural and traditional materials. The 10 exhibited works are focused on original Yuhang Bamboo, Water Silk Floss, Porcelain and Bamboo Paper - interpreted in a modern design language. Every work is a step in finding a wider design space for traditional materials.

TIME /04.2011    PROJECT / FUTURE TRADITION – Yuhang Paper Umbrella

2010年8月,我到余杭的乡下考察,认识了刘有泉师傅和4位60多岁的纸伞师傅。于是很快,我们有了一个想法,希望为已经消失的杭伞,做一次探索性的设计尝试。 一根毛竹, 5根棉线 ,7片皮宣纸,36根伞骨,70多道工序,不该尽尽是伞。制伞的传统手工艺,可以衍生出完全不同的产品。追寻纸伞消失的原因,我们又可以改进纸伞的设计,让其重回现代生活。

August 2010, I visited a village in Yuhang. I met 4 paper umbrella craft men, they were working for original Yuhang paper umbrella which was disappear for 50 years. Now in China, nobody wants to use it cause of too heavy,old fashion,low quality,too big etc. So we were thinking about doing something for them.
