    Living Pixels

    Taking recycled advertising banners as the project’s starting point; the designers gave a unique three-dimensionality to the material by cutting it into small pieces and combining them together to create interesting volumes of light and texture. The designers focused their efforts by creating each light shade individually and specifically for each stand, selecting the right banners, sorting out matching colors and sewing each patch by hand to build the perfect irregular shape. As the banners are printed in one side only, the lamps appear to be white and pale when switched off, but the plain appearance radically changes once the lamps are lighted on and the colors emerge from the inside. Due to the properties of the material, the light is smoothly diffused through the fabric creating a balloon of multi-colored light, but at the same time, the small banner swatches sewed together create a surface filled with holes from where the light escapes and scatters the surrounding environment with a vivid luminous pattern.

When the Chinese get an idea, they test it in the marketplace. They’re happy to do three to four rounds of commercialization to get an idea right, whereas in the West companies spend the same amount of time on research, testing, and validation before trying to take products to market. ” Read the article at McKinsey Quarterly View the full article

    Decoster Concept

    DECOSTERCONCEPT is a new design project seeking to articulate the encounter between tradition and contemporary times – expressed through the medium of clothing. The evolution of the project from its inception has manifested a strong focus on the research and detailing of simple volumes, as well as the exploration of different uses of materials. This revisits the rule of industrialization without compromise, to redefine the landscape of what is commonly accepted as old or new. Seeking to advance the experimentation of unique materials, textiles are sourced from various mills around the world to Shanghai where the creation of its distinctive yet cohesive garments occurs. Fabrics such as wool, hemp, and linen are augmented with leather and fine cotton to craft organic pieces that are embedded with an intangible energy. DECOSTERCONCEPT develops a particular juxtaposition in its clothing via blending the aspects of rawness and durability with elements of softness and elegance. It is through this intention that the garments possess an immediate yet subtle intrinsic value to the wearer. Designed by DECOSTER CONCEPT View the full article

That why Taiwan design style was called “fusion”. “Victoria in Supermarket” seems like a traditional furniture of Victoria style.

These low-price and barbarous drink contrast sharply with the high class Victoria style. At the same time, it shows how Europe culture influence Taiwanese culture deeply.
