Get the inspiration from Solid Geometry. In this theory, combine certain simple styling geometries could change them into a totally different and complete solid object by human beings unique imagination. The main idea of Ji Mu is abstract from Euclidean geometry and dominoes. Use simple wooden parts to assemble, to create and to innovate.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With different combinations of wooden parts and some simple wood joints, Ji Mu could change into diverse forms and develop into different usages. With certain numbers of those simple but magical parts, chair, small tea table, bench and even wine rack would be easily assembled and put into use
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Wooden parts and sticks become strong joints the they assemble together. Theoretically speaking, Ji Mu has various forms of existence. Users can find their own ways to assemble and build their own Ji Mu.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2016 in Zhengzhou and finished in October 2016.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
CNC lathe technique. Wood cutting process.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The L unit: Width 400mm x Depth 400mm x Height 35mm
The stick 1: Width 30mm x Depth 30mm x Height 315mm
The stick 2: Width 30mm x Depth 30mm x Height 630mm
Furniture, Chair, bench, wine rack
The unemployment situation is serious in today's China. More and more young people are now longing to buy products that could have multiple functions.
Designers should find out certain ways that how Ji Mu could be assembled. Meanwhile, the design itself should be multi-function and modular design.
