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

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

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
