DESCRIPTION

MUTUAL

顾名思义,我们理解的“蒲公英书席”,意在“传递”美好的意志,呼唤“读书”的同时,也在鼓励碎片信息化世代下的人们可以通过“读书”与自己相处,倾听内心,静静思考;在“喧闹”却“孤独”的社会中可以通过“交换书”链接出不期而遇的美好关系。

“Dandelion Books Seat,” as the name suggests, means to “express” the goodwill that the moment calling for “reading” also encourages those in the generation of fragmentary information to get along with themselves through “reading,” which inspires them to listen to their inner voices and think calmly. Living in a “clamorous” but “lonely” society, people, nevertheless, can develop the unexpected wonderful relationships by “exchanging books.”



在已落地台湾各个公园及街头的数十余个书席中,不乏美好的设计形态、环境友好的材质工艺、令人会心一笑的创意。我们试图寻找新的视角,呈现一座不一样的书席。“凿户牅以为室,当其无,有室之用“----老子。一个空间,空的部分比天地壁更值得琢磨。因此,比起它的形态、颜色、材质,我们更加关注“人“,在这个空间“容器”中会产生什么样体验,离开后会留存怎样的记忆。

Dozens of books seats, which are located in various parks and streets in Taiwan, show the gorgeous design styles, the environmentally-friendly materials and craftsmanship, and the intriguing creativities. We have been trying to find a new perspective to present a different books seat. “The door and windows are cut out (from the wall) to form an apartment; but it is on the empty space (within), that its use depends,” quoted from Laozi. An empty part, in a space, deserves more attentions than either a ceiling, wall or floor. In addition to focusing on its forms, colors and materials, we should care more about “people,” their experiences in this space “container,” and their memories after leaving this space.

  • MUTUAL-adj.相互的;共同的;共有的;彼此的

  • MUTUAL, the adjective word meaning bilateral, common, shared or reciprocal.



MUTUAL鼓励人与空间,空间与物,物与人,人与人产生直接的互动。它最大的魅力,也是目前已建成的书席没有出现过的特点,是必需借由两人以上的互动、合作,才能拿取书籍。

MUTUAL encourages the direct interactions engaged between people, people and space, space and object, and object and people. Its greatest charisma, which has never been seen in any existing books seat, is that the only access to books is the interaction and cooperation by at least two people, which are the wonderful bonding we want to attain from MUTUAL.


这是我们想要通过MUTUAL实现的奇妙羁绊。一高一矮,一正一侧,两个木盒穿插在一起形成MUTUAL的主体结构;利用物理学最基础的定滑轮装置,绳子一端连接书箱的外壳,一端由一人拉起,一人取、放书籍,在两个木盒内完成“寻宝”的合作,也是书箱的唯一开启方式。

The adjoined two wood boxes, either of which is tall or short and is on the front or on the side, symbolize the main structure of MUTUAL. The fixed pulleys, which are normally applied in physics, are implemented on two wood boxes, one of which is connected to one side of a rope. When a person pulls up the rope on the other side, the other person can therefore access to the books. This cooperation to operate the box resembles the activity of “treasure hunting,” and it is the only way to open the book boxes as well.

在设计的最初构想阶段,我们很快确定了“互动”书席的概念,希望把FUN、趣味带入其中,用最简单、低碳的方式完成本次“蒲公英”式的美好传递。通过人与人之间的分享、互助、彼此共有的MUTUAL体验,产生美好、有趣的记忆。

In the initial stage developing the design ideas, we promptly determined the “interaction” as the concept of books seat consisting of the funny and intriguing elements. We, consequently, accomplished the wonderful expression of “dandelion” with the simplest and low-carbon method that creates the wonderful and intriguing memories of the MUTUAL experiences by people sharing and helping reciprocally.
