[FLOWING BAMBOO] was founded in the south of the lake and is one of the main origins of bamboo in China. It conforms to the geographical position. [FLOWING BAMBOO] is the world’s first “bamboo” whole for the development, management, supply, research and development, production and sales of the bamboo industry. Industry group. With great concentration in research and development, “Bamboo Charcoal Board” is gradually replacing traditional boards with excellent properties. This will be an unavoidable “environmental protection revolution”.
[FLOWING BAMBOO] As early as 2019, the “Global Plan” was launched to establish operation centers in major core locations around the world. Even the global outbreak at the beginning of 2020 has not affected their layout. As the core hub of the two super regions of Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Changtai, Shantou, the special zone, has an excellent location advantage [FLOWING BAMBOO] decided to settle here and take advantage of eastern Guangdong to radiate the southeast coastal area.
[DOUBLE GOOD DESIGN] Founder Mr. Lin Yan and [FLOWING BAMBOO] Guangdong regional leader Mr. Wen Shaoxin together came up with the site inspection site： The hope is to combine the characteristics of the space to construct a commercial art exhibition that is “de-commercialized” Space, let design and art help sales. Years of commercial design experience has made Lin Yan become tactile and has the ability to quickly capture accurate “user portraits”.
The new site is located in the Xinjin area, which was originally an agricultural area. Perhaps because the available area in the central city has become increasingly scarce, it has become a place where all kinds of building materials capital gather in recent years. The pristine environment and the new buildings form a strong sense of impact. Reading in a place where there is no word and sentence is disorderly but full of vitality and possibility.
▲设计思路推演 Design idea deduction
In the first half of the site, visitors are taken to extremes by the entrance, and the single line of movement is planned deliberately by designer Lin Yan. The designer changed the inertial entrance, moved the gate to the most tasteless position of the space as a whole, and turned it into an independent entrance, deliberately inserting various scenes in it to allow visitors to enter it. The large façade glass invites daylight to sway freely, allowing it to leave a trail of behavior on the wall [bamboo charcoal board], illuminating the texture of the space material and laying out the imprint of time.
The relaxed tone spreads in the deliberately created salon field. Just imagine that we can carry out all the daily activities here, not just on business, and you and I are invited to it. Lin Yan believes that the background color of the design is to “break the limit”, so let two square pipes to prop up a whole piece of solid marble. The stone will carry multiple important “roles” in the days without “going down to the ground”. This is [Technology] The crystallization of “and art” is also the leading language of [FLOWING BAMBOO] towards the ultimate attitude.
Everything is supposed to be kinetic energy. At this moment, it is like a silent time and space. It will be more conducive to the presentation of the product texture to allow visitors to focus. Use the world’s only [Bamboo Charcoal Piano] to play the most moving parts of those times.
The design of the multifunctional long platform is inspired by [Da Vinci]’s “Vitruvian Man” based on the most accurate proportion of men, so later generations will often use “perfect proportion” to describe the men among them.
The surface display is the original intention of [FLOWING BAMBOO]. [DOUBLE GOOD DESIGN] chooses a number of different media and spreads it in the space in a direct and diversified manner. The purpose is to hope that visitors will be there when they participate in the meeting. , To touch, to feel the temperature. And not only limited to vague imagination or Datong’s marketing words, let the product “voice” by itself.
The appearance of the composite surface material makes the bamboo charcoal board no longer a single carbon black. The universal closing solution adds visual segmentation rhythm, shapes the aesthetics of the overall space, and emphasizes the environmental protection properties of raw materials. Since the beginning of the entry, this has been an experimental process of using a single material.
Lin Yan believes that the design of space does not need to accommodate a specific function, and the use of materials should be arbitrary, creating unlimited possibilities to highlight the superior compatibility of materials.
Bamboo has been a natural gift of building materials to humans since ancient times. However, due to technical reasons, natural bamboo is generally weather-resistant, and few hundred-year-old bamboo buildings remain in the world. 【FLOWING BAMBOO】The moso bamboo is crushed and carbonized at high temperature, then processed into activated carbon powder and pressed into shape. The physical form of bamboo has been changed through technical means. The bamboo charcoal board after Nirvana has low aldehyde, high hardness, moisture resistance, purification, and meets the needs of modern people for living in bamboo.
Get rid of weak or irrelevant presuppositions and embrace uncertainty in a new way of understanding. Roundabout and concealed. We intelligently create the “unknown” to make visitors fall into our preset visit process unconsciously, just like a bullet being loaded, and can’t stop at all.
The negotiation space wrapped in [Bamboo Charcoal Board], folds into the wormhole-like space, like Alice lost in the wonderland, crisscrossing and blurring the boundary, losing the sense of scale, “talking with candles at night” in the day, and “Internet “Competing for user attention is an urgent consideration for the real economy.
Excellent materials also need to be equipped with mature overall solutions. The product development department is obsessed with all kinds of tricky closing solutions and style iterations, escorting every commission.
Designer Lin Yan pays attention to the logic hidden behind it, starting, inheriting, turning, opening, closing and enclosing. Space is a container, and the exhibition hall contains products and people. The space always belongs to one point, and there are countless hidden secondary lines between the two. Create the possibility of random stays, allowing visitors to retain more time and energy, and to read more deeply about the brand.
Around the center of the selection room as a circle, the space clockwise divides the functional area into various instance scenes, which are rationally distributed and blended with each other through the scrutiny of moving lines. Through the connection of visual elements and spatial vocabulary, it subtly promotes people’s behavior in it, and enhances the series of spatial story clues, just like opening a Pandora’s box, the corresponding application scene behind the material display board, and augmented reality immersive.
The exquisite and interesting scene is a large amount of investment in research and almost more detailed execution. In the design, the optimal spatial subdivision scale is derived from the deduction of various functions, so that [FLOWING BAMBOO] uses a unique design context. It perfectly tells the brand story between structure, material and space. Not only a brand exhibition hall, this space is also an “application guidebook” on [Bamboo Charcoal Board]
