  • Dieter Rams speaker
    Music is sometimes the only company you need, whether you’re listening to your favorite artist with your ears perked up beside the speaker or letting jazz fill in the background while you work. With quarantine, however, it can sometimes feel difficult to just let listening to music be an activity in and of itself. The list of distractions and temptations is literally endless – the timeline never runs dry. Instagram’s feed is ever-changing and endlessly refreshable, as another text message rings and more unread emails pile up, and Twitter has the latest and most accessible updates out there. But this new Dieter Rams-inspired Bluetooth speaker design encourages you to click the lock button and stow the phone away if only for a song. The design’s concept is visually approachable and inviting, with a single speaker on the product design’s right-hand side, a roomier pocket for your phone on the left, and self-explanatory player controls on top. While the visual and compartmental design makes the music device easily portable, it also motivates you to end the constant scrolling and just enjoy the music. Since the speaker works with Bluetooth, the space to stow away your phone is more of a light suggestion than a prerequisite for operation. However, if you do decide to use the suggested space for your phone, the product’s design becomes user-adjustable. Since the speaker’s screen, which encases your phone, is transparent, that means you can transform your screen into a compact cassette or any other background, invoking your favorite musical memory within any room. It’s admittedly hard to put the phone down when you’re spending a lot of time in the same space every day – the timeline isn’t the only thing that could use some refreshing. If anything, quarantine has awakened many of us to the relief that design can provide by reigniting in us simpler, warmer energy from yesteryear. Inspired by Dieter Rams’ widely-celebrated TP-1 transistor radio and phonograph, this new speaker design offers exactly that. The elemental str

  • Fun Factory - A Comedy Experimental Theater
    It locates at the central area of Shanghai Xujiahui.

  • YIFANG YOU JU
    In the middle of the city, it is located in a secluded area, which is separated from the downtown area and the downtown area by natural buildings. Adhering to the modern simple technique and integrating the praise of the original form in the traditional Japanese aesthetics, the log color is used to show the unique texture of the material, so as to praise the natural form and create a clean and clean feeling. Light color fabric sofa with flannel texture, hand woven wool carpet, black element straight line, and simple lamps and lanterns are matched with each other to give a clean and elegant feeling, making the home always exude comfortable, quiet and warm. On the basis of using logs to build the original sense of space, we simplify the decoration, make it solid with empty space, and use a large area of blank state, without too much deliberate decoration, to create a simple and orderly indifference. It is the same with the so-called light body and mind. While emphasizing the simplicity and abstraction of space form and objects, the design also pays more attention to the relevance of objects. The placement of each object has been carefully considered and the significance of the object when it is related to space. It is also good to abandon the sofa in the living room of the conventional residence and share the delicious food with the dining room in the open multi-functional hall; children no longer watch TV and play in

  • moon coffee maker
    If you are a coffee addict then you will feel excited about new appliances that increase the joy you feel when brewing! This conceptual coffee machine is very unlike the espresso makers in the market and it’s the aesthetics that set it apart. It is a dream machine for people who love coffee and space exploration equally (like me!). The compact capsule shape makes it look like a moon lander for your counter and is obviously powered by caffeine which is only the second most powerful fuel after rocket fuel! The designer’s main focus was to retain some of the rawness and the mechanical steampunk look of the traditional Italian espresso makes while maintaining a clean shape that adds character to the product. There is a tubular water/steam container at the back which I feel can be extended down for added support for the appliance. There is also another container for your beans which I assume leads to a small grinder mechanism inside so you only get the freshest cup of joe each time. Overall, the shape is very unique and combines the nostalgic steampunk elements with clean, smooth curves for a balanced modern machine. I almost feel like this should come with a voice feature that does a countdown to when your coffee is ready. “I’ve always been fascinated with those big chrome machines that almost looked like a small lab, it made me think about how we perceive coffee now when the whole ritual is being reduced to a capsule and a press of a button. When sitting down to settle on my concept I thought how can I incorporate this love for mechanical and tactile looking objects, with an updated clean look? Can I make a coffee machine that looks scientific but also has a cute character?” says Yehuda. T – 10 seconds till I have my second (or fourth) cup!

  • Harbin Heyue Mansion sample room
    This project is located in Daoli District of Harbin and belongs to the high-end residential area of Harbin. In this project, the designer uses the simple and minimalist aesthetics of the Song Dynasty to show the space, requiring absolute simplicity, extending the design of the entire space with the simplicity of circle, square, plain color and texture. The white clean facade of the interior space and the beige ink-like marble background wall are based on the minimalist style. There are not too many materials and elements, and enough space for soft decoration is reserved for interactivity. The Song dynasty painted with ink and burned monochromatic Ru kiln porcelain, so we used the sky blue color of Ru kiln, the head of northern celadon and the crown of five famous kilns, as the main color of the space. The combination of white gray and azure color creates a mood of "azure and other smoke and rain" in the entire space. The overall space design uses different materials to make a perfect fusion, and cleverly uses the differences to divide the functionality of the area. The flowing glass divides the space area and adds the visual concept of the open space. The large-area glass windows in the living room warm the space temperature under the refraction of sunlight, and also enhance the comfort of one's own soul. MERCEDES BENZ's sofa is flexible in the space, extend.

  • Taoyuan Greentown
    This case is inspired by the culture and aesthetics of the Republic of China period. In this project, the "Republic of China" is a space that seems to be infinitely retrievable, from one to the other, from here to another, from now to the past. "Western Tide and New Tide", "Upper Society", and "Traditional Beauty and Modern Beauty" have become the subject terms of the project creation, which interprets the characteristics of the era of the Republic of China: the entry of Western culture has changed from silky threads to tides. Cultural forms are all infiltrated with Western colors; beauty and cruel history are interdependent. For the most part, the style of the Republic of China is the beauty of landlord, comprador and upper-class intellectual society. On the one hand, it is the feudal era of closed country while on the other hand is the violent involvement of the Western world. Social culture presents unprecedented openness and integration. The designer has completed the image of the era of the Republic of China style from multiple dimensions in terms of architectural form, space atmosphere, object story and identity, constructing the link of contemporary life.

  • SCANDI-TRENDY
    A cosy minimalist Scandinavian-inspired theme is prevalent throughout this condo, elegantly meeting the request of the owners - a couple with young children, for a bright and spacious home that expresses who they are and what they love. While the aesthetic appears to be simple, the designers were meticulous about getting the neutral palette of light tones and soft furnishing in harmony with one another. The high attention to detail proved to be advantageous as what transpired was a collection of fine features against a serene and pleasant backdrop. In the living room, white decorative panels and full-height storage cabinets with the same panelled effect grace the main walls. Instead of placing the TV on an elaborate feature wall, the flat screen is set right above the white wall panels for a streamlined look. Other media equipment is neatly stored inside the standalone cabinet. Herringbone flooring further enhances the minimalist appearance, giving the pared-down theme a touch of personality. Throughout the 2-bedroom home, loose furniture pieces keep the lightweight Scandinavian concept consistent. The designers also went for an asymmetrical approach to infuse a carefree attribute to the space. For example, in the living room, a grey sofa with a single planter box placed casually next to it as well as the round-shaped rug and coffee table create a versatile composition of form, function and textures to support the interior style. Behind the sofa, the full-height storage cabinet incorporates a bench seating area for the dining space which features a wood dining set that comes with two chairs. Above, the pendant lamp draws attention to the table centrepieces comprising small potted plants. Natural light from the sliding door brightens up the space while indoor plants in attractive vases evoke a fresh feeling instantly. Designed to be a dry and wet kitchen at the same time, the cookspace features a pair of custom-made sliding doors with thin metal frames. As the bottom part of the frame is trackless, when the doors are completely opened, the kitchen seamlessly blends with the surrounding living spaces. When closed, it becomes a defining feature, adding on to the living room's backdrop. In the centre of the kitchen, a polished white island anchors the space while black chalkboard finishing on the facing wall beautifully contrasts with the pristine white colour theme. The chalkboard finishing is more than just decorative as it allows the owners' toddlers to entertain themselves drawing on the wall while their parents cook in the kitchen. In the bedroom, soothing greys and light wood hues dominate. Billowy sheers and heavy curtains engender a soft atmosphere, matching the lush upholstered bedframe. Walls are kept bare, painted only in a warm shade of grey, saved for the framed photographs that line the opposite walls - these pictures were handpicked by the owner who is an avid photographer. Next to the bed, a white desk with thin legs on the left as well as a cosy chair on the right side complete the furnishing details to create a well-composed Scandinavian-inspired ambience that the owners are fond of.

  • Transitional Ambience
    Home to a family of four, the brief for this 5,367 sqft bungalow in Kuala Lumpur was straightforward – the owner requested for a clean and contemporary interior that includes both a wet and dry kitchen as well as a formal living hall. To meet these requirements, the design team's first approach was to open up the spaces on the Ground Floor to accommodate the main living spaces which comprise the living hall, dining area, dry kitchen and the wet kitchen. As this bungalow is set over a long and narrow layout, these spaces were aligned against a central axis to bring in a sense of fluidity and spaciousness. Solid walls were eliminated where possible; however, to visually divide the living area and the dry kitchen, semi-open display panels were employed so that a streamlined outcome could be achieved to complement the linear configuration of the furniture pieces that landmark each of the different spaces. Towards the front, the living hall is enveloped by custom-designed floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors. A strong palette of dark wood and sophisticated accents evoke a touch of formality in this space, but softer textures engender a personal and cosy home environment. The doors slide open to reveal a cosy terrace, creating an indoor-outdoor atmosphere while ensuring the living area receives optimal natural light and air. What stands out in this home is not immediately apparent as it is more about how the spaces “feel”. The graceful way the spaces flow is anchored by the design team's intention to create a transitional experience when moving from one room to another. This is prevalent when one walks from the living area to the dry kitchen and the dining area. A different ambience ensues at each of these spaces, albeit being set in an open plan manner. While it was not an easy feat, the design team accomplished this unique spatial effect using a gradient approach where strategic applications of dark tones elevate into lighter hues and polished surfaces throughout the home. On the First Floor, three bedrooms pivot around a family hall. In the master bedroom, a dark, masculine theme highlights the space. While the owners wanted a walk-in wardrobe, it was not ideal as the existing space between the ensuite bathroom and the bedroom was very tight. To resolve this, the design team took down the adjacent walls to create an open-concept bathroom. This made way for a walk-in wardrobe that is separated from the bathroom by a solid black glass which contrasts with the sleek white countertop of the washbasin area, once again bringing in the gradient approach that was used dominantly on the Ground Floor. "The house is modern, minimalist and luxurious all in one," says the design team. “The main challenge was deciding how to bring a different experience, how the tone of colours changes from one space to another. We are glad we went for it as the interplay of different materials and tonal values have resulted in a strong design outcome.”

  • PERFECTION IN MOTION
    For this large-scale family home, Pins Studio created a luxurious yet laid back space centred around contemporary elements. One half of the home which consists of the dining, kitchen and utility rooms on the ground floor and the bedroom on the upper level, has been completely revamped from scratch. To ensure that the spaces come together in harmony with the existing ones, the interior design team engaged a series of sophisticated materials enhanced by functional details to bring out an updated look. Set upon an open plan layout, the newly renovated spaces feature a custom-built cabinet that serves as an important central element to demarcate the wet kitchen, laundry room and the dry kitchen while concealing a large column that rests awkwardly in the middle. Stretching all the way across the dry and wet kitchen, the cabinet unit acts as a feature wall which is affixed with a camouflaged door leading into wet kitchen and another entrance on the side that opens into the laundry room. When the hidden door is opened, the cabinet wall becomes a freestanding element; when closed, it instantly transforms into a stylish backdrop for the kitchen and dining area. To further resolve the column issue, the dining room’s TV console panelling and cabinet are placed inside the built-in storage area. Appliances in the dry kitchen like the wine chiller, fridge and oven are neatly tucked into the cabinet to maintain a minimalist appearance. In the wet kitchen on the other side, there's another built-in oven placed between ample storage shelves for stowing away pantry goods and cooking utensils. To create a modern minimalist backdrop for the all-white kitchen island and the adjacent dining area the entire cabinet wall takes on a pristine white palette, alternated with black shelves. Delicate details like curved edges are also introduced to enhance the modern appeal. This is seen on the built-in display shelves next to the dining area which gently wrap around the corners of the wall to engender a smooth effect, juxtaposing with the bolder interior features. Moving on to the first floor, the stairway leads into a spacious family room on the left. A U-shaped sofa anchors the grey-themed room, providing plenty of space for lounging around, watching TV or chilling out. The dark wood feature wall accommodating the flat screen TV brings in a similar colour palette from the ground floor to maintain visual continuity between the two levels. Natural light streams in through the large windows dressed in grey drapes, brightening the space while softening the atmosphere at the same time. In the generously sized master bedroom, a dark-toned freestanding wall is strategically placed in the centre of the room, creating an elegant headboard for the bed on one side and a study area on the other. Dark wood is used for the top part while white marble with silvery veins highlight the bottom part. At the study area, the marble surface extends into a cantilevered desk, keeping everything sleek and minimalist. For a clean and sleek effect, the TV cabinet is concealed within the wall that separates the master bedroom and the bedroom next door. In the adjacent bedroom, the cabinet is ingeniously incorporated into the wardrobe space. Right behind the study area, the space flows into the walk-in wardrobe and bathroom suite. The bathroom is kept wide open - doors are absent and only carefully selected materials are used to indicate the different spaces. In the walk-in wardrobe, the wood flooring and dark timber shelves exude a warm feeling. Upon stepping into the bathroom clad in light-toned marble, the space transitions into a cooler environment. The contrast is subtle yet adds to the unique spatial experience that sets this home apart from others.

  • Fragrance Beads Packaging
    The outer packaging design of the product is inspired by the warm scene of families helping each other to wash clothes and the functional characteristics of fragrance beads for laundry. In studying the packaging design intention of fragrance bead products available in the market, the designer finds that today’s busy and complicated modern society breeds people more pursuing aesthetics of conciseness, quietness and warmth. The product is in the shape of clothes simplified from the image of a hug. It symbolizes the care for the family and visualizes the function of the product. The plump shape in white appearance is full of affinity, implying that the product can make people embrace with a light faint scent. The ribbon design at the collar also adds a touch of spirituality to the overall design style. This series is designed with four fragrance types. Products of different fragrance types are distinguished by white beads capsules plus varied colors of the beads. In appearance, the designer matches the ribbon and font color with the fragrance bead color, enabling users to identify the fragrance by the color. Blue represents marine fragrance; pink implies flower fragrance; beige indicates fruity fragrance; and purple stands for plant fragrance. The bottle cap can be used as a measuring cup, each about 15 grams, so that users can decide the number of fragrance beads as per their personal preferences. The adopted HDPE material brings a wax touch, thus enabling girls to easily unscrew the bottle cap. The product features simple workmanship production and enjoys good airtightness and recyclability function. Also, the opaque design prevents the light from volatilizing the aroma and prolongs the shelf life.
