DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Buzao - Qie

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Pendant light

INSPIRATION:
The 'Buzao' series is a project we want to present to the people who are passionate toward life and would like to accept something new. 'Buzao' means 'I don't know' in mandarin but literally means 'to not overwork'. We believe that there is no actual creation but only changes - so called 'creating' is actually changing something familiar into an unfamiliar way that we had not experienced before.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A simple and clear integrated design of pendant light made from volcanic rock. One version of the Qie pendant light uses a metallic end, makes the contradiction of colors and textures between volcanic rock and metallic surface is fascinating. Insulating stone material makes it safe from occurrence of electric shock and the rock itself is so durable that you might not have to get a new one anymore.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The natural texture on volcanic rock is a great decoration when accompanied with polished metal surface. The eye-catching contradiction is kind of interesting from our perspectives.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design is initially released in 2012, but the version of volcanic rock is developed in 2017. Not yet exhibited.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The beginning of the idea of this product was a trip we went to Teng Chong, a town near to a volcano. The entire town applied only one kind of stylishly porous stone to make bricks, floor tiles and so on. We felt in love with the rock and later realized that most volcanic rocks that is not too large in size were regarded as 'wastes', which made us wanted to reuse it as a cool material we could apply on our products. As we wanted to reduce waste, we tried reusing the leftover material to make small items including ‘Qie’. Qie does not need any decoration as its unique texture of volcanic rock surface has provided enough decoration. Simple geometric shapes guarantees a certain degree of compressive resistance and thus decreases the rate of spoiled products.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Diameter: 96mm Height: 162mm Volcanic rock, Copper

Bentu, Buzao, Material, Design, Volcanic rock, Travertine noce, Lighting, Pendant light, Reuse

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Volcanic rock or so called travertine noce are extensively applied in interior design. It is commonly seen that there are tons of leftover material and off-cut produced during processing which reflects overcapacity of volcanic rock and resource waste. As we wanted to reduce wastes, we tried reusing the leftover material to make small items or just directly put it into use.

CHALLENGE:
The volcanic rock as a material is quite brittle and it was a challenge to carve on the volcanic rock to make an empty space for electronic components to install later.
