Description

Fengshui – the ancient traditional Chinese practice has been evolving throughout the changing times and continues adapting the latest development of the interior space and exterior landscape. Such characteristic of adaptation and constantly evolving has made the ancient practice still valid in the current day and also indicates potential in the future. So how do we define Fengshui in the present day? If there is a physical form of it what would it look like? With these hypothesis questions, Manifold started the project “Ornament” – a series of custom solid wood panels that reinterpret the traditional Fengshui ornament pattern produced using contemporary fabrication techniques and creative approaches.

For the process, a pattern is selected and blurred as a bump map texture that is soon to be applied to modify the surface of a disc in a 3D space. Such 3D data then has been used to CNC on top of a solid wood panel, which will produce the final piece. Pieces in the series can be produced in various sizes based on the selected pattern, and material selection is limited to solid natural wood, particularly teak or walnut.

About the designer


Manifold is a Brooklyn-based design studio run by Yihan Chen and Fengyi Zhu. Both trained artists and designers, Yihan & Fengyi\'s work under Manifold focuses on creating sculptural objects and furniture that contents with structure and connectivity. The name Manifold is derived from the way a pipe branches into several openings in an engine compartment, and such serpentine shaped form has become an essential inspiration to most of their work as it displays a sense of softness through strength despite its physical property. visit www.manifold.tv to discover more

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
