戴美儿:没有眼镜就不会思考 I can't think without my glasses

PRESENTED ON SEP 06, 2014
IN SHENZHEN @ VOL 20

戴美儿:没有眼镜就不会思考
“没了眼镜就不会思考”,戴美儿的眼镜宣言语出惊人,她是香港时尚眼镜品牌“Genic Eyewear”的创始人,在她的设计理念当中, 时尚、摄影、建筑、音乐或美容都可以作为设计灵感来源。但归根结底,她认为适合的才是最好的。因此,她致力于为塌鼻子亚洲人设计最适合佩戴的个性化眼镜,这个鼻梁上的小小物件,如果选对了可以与佩戴者融为一体,甚至让人觉得离开了它就“不会思考”。

除了分享这独具一格的设计理念,戴美儿还通过图片分享了“Genic Eyewear”品牌推出的多款产品。这些眼镜为切合亚洲人较扁鼻梁,鼻托做得较高,另备有复古形状、浮夸颜色或纹理,令眼镜不止于必需品,而是代表个性的时尚配饰。 戴美儿说,既然要做个性化设计,就要将个性化进行到底。因此她开设了“造一副属于自己的眼镜”工作坊,让参加者只需利用简单工具,花上数小时便能亲手造出独一无二、属于自己的眼镜。


1 Emily Dai: I can’t think without my  glasses
“I can’t think without my  glasses” says Emily Dai, the founder of Hong Kong fashion brand Genic Eyewear. According to her conception of design, fashion, photography, architecture, music and beauty are all inspirational. But she is also concerned with the practical elements of design. For this reason, Dai has dedicate herself to designing the most suitable glasses, particularly for Asians with lower noses.

In addition to sharing her unique design concepts, Emily Dai also shared photos of Genic Eyewear’s different product styles, incorporating retro shapes, flamboyant colours and textures. Dai says: “Good design must be personalised.” Her workshop’s stated aim is “to build glasses that belong to the owner.” Customers need only spend a couple of hours and curtesy of Genic Eyewear, they will have their own unique pair of glasses.

李成:迷人的不确定性

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SHENZHEN
@ VOL 20 ON MAY 24, 2014

在李成看来,“不确定性”是设计的魂儿,也是设计的根。社会发展日新月异,现代人如果捧着一个原始人专属的青铜器来喝水,一定会被另眼相看,我们回不到过去的生活,也无法延续往昔的生活状态,人类的生活需求在岁月更迭中渐渐演变,如何抓住这种变化,看透生活的“不确定性”,李成认为这是设计师应该思考的一大课题。

“随着社会发展,产品超出了我们过去的预期。”李成通过他设计的产品图片,比如手指咖啡杯,两面拖鞋来展现他赋予产品的新使命。不断超越客户的预期,不妄图去界定一个客户是他所坚持的设计理念。
