“YELLOW CROSS” 竹製吊燈

在西方文化強勢衝擊下,在地輪廓漸形模糊,單以產品外觀往往無法分辨源自何方,這樣的情況在多元文化薈萃的台灣更是明顯,本作以展現台灣竹的優異彈性韌性與匠師的獨門工藝為出發,同時企圖探討所謂‘’品味‘’的「政治正確性」,並從異文化觀者所產生的不同聯想得到驗證。

乍看其簡約外形或許讓你聯想到西式水晶吊燈,但仔細觀察便能發現實際上是將中文字“本”中的撇捺語彙結合廟宇飛檐意向,同時蘊含西式華麗與東方韻味,竹越用越亮的色澤與銅隱晦的金屬光澤在燈光下相互輝映,展現其深藏不露的雅緻魅力。

“本” 字旨在提醒自己不受環境迷惑,將自身的特色發揮。

As western culture strongly influences the world, products in different regions and areas are gradually losing its own locally distinctive styles. It is often difficult to pinpoint the origins of certain products, and the phenomenon is especially obvious in Taiwan. After contemplating what could best describe Taiwan besides shape and form, I have discovered bamboos that grew up in Taiwan’s unique landform and distinctive climate are the special materials that cannot be copied and imitated elsewhere. Based on the distinctiveness of bamboos, I try to discover how to apply bamboo crafting to its fullest with the most charismatic way possible.


To show the flexibility and tenacity nature of bamboo and the special technique of Taiwanese traditional crafts, I made an extremely simple shape of the image of “本”
(the character 本, meaning “origin”, represents the shape of roots, as an attempt to remind us of our ethnicity and bravely display our distinctive characteristics no matter where we are ) which looks like classic western chandelier but combine some eastern feathers. The chandelier glorifies the beauty of the natural material itself. It seems familiar but altogether somewhat different from the typically chandelier.
