Description

“Oxytocin” drawer cabinet is inspired by the artistic form of Chinese incense burner tower, a classical ceremonial object. It is completely covered in fine silk, hand-embroidered with the molecular geometry of Oxytocin – the hormone and neurotransmitter related to empathy – and text related to well-being. Beneath the silk cover is a 0.5 cm thick layer of soft plush fabric.

As part of Duyi Han’s “Ordinance of the Subconscious Treatment” collection, this piece is considered a device that records human cultural history. It updates the decorative content of classical Chinese furniture and reflects a contemporary belief in the modern scientific side of mental health.

The embroidery is done by highly experienced craftspeople in Suzhou, China. The piece is made by experienced professionals at Duyi Han’s collaborative workshop in Shanghai.

Three drawers: inside 27-35cm L, 8-13.5cm W, 6.5-9cm H, lined with silk
Colors may differ slightly from the samples provided.

Available in two embroidery techniques: standard or Suzhou Embroidery. Suzhou Embroidery is a designated National Intangible Cultural Heritage. While the default silk thread is about 0.15mm thick, Suzhou Embroidery’s thread is about 0.025mm thick. For Suzhou Embroidery, lead time would increase by 12 weeks. The embroidered result may look flatter than the default version.

The designer

Profile Photo
Atelier Duyi Han
Duyi Han (1994) is an artist and designer who creates digital and physical environments and objects as perceptual experiences that evoke rich feelings of beauty. His work is based on extensive research on the evolution process of design and aesthetics, with a focus on the “ingredients of beauty” as they relate to society, culture, history, geography, and biology. Using these “ingredients of beauty,” Duyi Han’s experimental practice operates beyond the limitation of fixed style and time period, creating poetic and moving work that is able to respond to diverse time and cultural contexts. His past work has appeared on numerous international platforms, from Vogue to American National Academy of Sciences. Duyi Han holds a B. Arch (2019) from Cornell University in New York and has worked at the architecture office Herzog & de Meuron in Basel, Switzerland.
