在设计师眼里，玻璃之美恰恰在于传统吹制玻璃技艺所造成的表面凹凸不平。这盏令人动容的灯具融合传统玻璃手工技艺和一些现代化生产制造工序：手工技艺将玻璃的美好定格在时间之中；优雅、精确的旋转仿佛令这种材质重生；而凹凸的穹顶则创造了大量不确定性，有如水面随风荡漾。这件作品完美实践了诗研设计事务所（Poetic Lab） “将诗意瞬间用实验性手法呈现出来”的设计理念。
The Ripple Project studies the beauty of glass. When a beam of light is projected through the gently rotating mouth-blown glass dome, shadow and light form a breathtaking, ever-changing pattern, in which the aesthetic goes beyond the material itself.
The process of making this project includes both traditional glass craft skills and modern production engineering of the moving parts. The designers realized that the beauty of glass lies in the uneven surface resulting from the traditional mouth-blowing process. While this craft freezes the beauty of glass in time, the elegant and precise rotation of the mechanism brings the flow of material back to life, as if the dome exists with an uncertainty.
设计师简介 About The Designer
United Kingdom/China Taiwan 英国/中国台湾
他们曾2013年的“卫星展”（Salone Satellite）期间举办过一次名为“物质之外”（“Beyond Object”）的联合展览，展出了一系列由光和影组成的作品，展览反响超越预期。两人凭借“光之涟漪”项目成为了设计报告大奖优胜者，并获得“卫星展”新锐设计奖（Salone Satellite Award）第三名。这一次的成功在不久后便促成了两人决定成立长期联合工作室，诗研设计事务所。
Poetic Lab is a London-based joint studio founded by designer Hanhsi Chen and Shikai Tseng after they met and graduated from Royal College of Art in London. Although they acquired very diversed experiences before they decided to work together , the duo shares the same design philosophy, that is central to the studio: the poetry of objects and materials,. This enables them to shape an object from multiple perspectives.
The duo teamed up for a joint exhibition in SaloneSatellite 2013 called Beyond Object, where they showcased a collection of objects composed by light and shadows. The results were better than expected: they were named winner of the design report award, and received the third prize in theSalone Satellite Award, both with the project Glass Ripple. The success soon led to a dedicated decision to start a permanent joint studio – Poetic Lab.
