Terrazzo Times Table by Hsuan Ting Huang - Shih Chien University

Home > Winners > #58778


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Terrazzo Times

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration of “Terrazzo Times” comes from the observation of old house renovations, which architects retain the original structure as the new interior’s materials or support, different from the general modular ways. To present the characteristic of terrazzo floor, which contains both rough and gentle cement and inlaid copper strips like the texture of gorgeous velvets, it depends superiorly on hand-polishing.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
To reinforce this image, I re-created the building materials into new materials to seal the past time. I chose the techniques of terrazzo to complete as the furniture surface, and the traditional copper strip inlaid on the floor as the support structure. I collected the materials of old houses, and used the techniques of poured terrazzo to form a new matrix except a sharp objects.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
To present the characteristic of terrazzo floor, which contains both rough and gentle cement and inlaid copper strips like the texture of gorgeous velvet, it depends superior on hand-polishing. The use of old materials can create the warm and delicate effect of the surface. Some of them even contain the hidden flowing texture.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2015 in Taipei and finished in March 2015 in Taipei, and was exhibited in YODEX in May 2015.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
“Imagine the value beyond the mass-production: build our lives through creativity, not only for the economic purpose.” Through the memories of old house renovations, I took the materials from old buildings such as bricks, tiles, ceramic, gravel as the new stuffs of the furniture. Moreover, I tried to seal the traces of time elapsed.

CHALLENGE:
Every piece of furniture are required with welding, cementing to complete, taking a full month of time. In addition, while dealing with the details, it is necessary to b e precisely accurate. All those makes the series of furniture a set of precise and perfect art pieces. Special treatment technique gives the characteristics of the cement much tougher. The story of the object itself is the green copper embroider suffusing which shows very amazing color. Through the passing of time, it becomes even more unique and conveys a spiritual temperature.

PROFILE:
Shih Chien University, formerly known as Shih Chien College of Home Economics, was founded in 1958 by Mr. Tung-Min Shieh.
