This is a space unlike sales center. According to the require of a club, the designers make the most use of every space, integrating their understanding of Oriental Aesthetics and the characteristics that suits contemporary people with the space at the same time.
Based on this, we expect to deliberate over the setting and presentation of light from the dimensions of “visible” characteristics of the club and the “invisible” experience of the oriental aesthetics.
It is required that the space of club should not be too bright because of the demand of relaxation and comfort. Meanwhile, there is a requirement of functional use as a sale center, therefore balance between them should be made.
During the arrangement of illumination, firstly light should be arranged evenly in the space because white and beige are dominant colors in this space. The combination of them presents a harmonious atmosphere, surrounded by which people will feel relaxed as if they are lying in soft beds.
Additionally, those objects with necessary function, unique shape and artistic taste are emphasized by strengthening the brightness in local position moderately. It not only makes the function of guidance clear, enabling guests to transform in the space smoothly, but also allows guest alternate their visual focus constantly during walking in this space, offering the guests a chance to sense and appreciate the taste of the design.
The concept of oriental aesthetics is abstract as well as concrete. Abstract is perception based on psychology, while concrete is symbolic visual satisfaction. In the aspect of abstract, we consider what kind of light can make people have a psychological resonance with oriental aesthetics and gain recognition.
First is indirect light, we hide light behind grilles and structures to make silhouettes or diffuse light through paper windows; The second is continuous light, we make the light on the ground or in the structure to continue as far as possible, forming an infinite light visual effect; Then there is reflected light, we use the light to illuminate the metal with wave shape or water to spread the movement of light and shadow in the space, creating an empty aesthetic atmosphere.
From the representational aspect, we will analyze the characteristics of the object that conform to the Oriental aesthetic expression, emphasize them with light, or supplement the light as a shape or kind of material to the object to perfect such characteristics.
For example, with backlight, a round concave shape of the wall will look like a full moon or a luminous moon door, this is the impression of the most direct association of oriental aesthetics; another example is, a long corridor with linear gleaming shape can create a kind of cascading change from time and space that seems to contain something unknown.
This is an exploratory lighting design case, which explores the emotional needs of spatial human expression through the light under the specific rational needs of business.
