DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Pile array

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Product Display

INSPIRATION:
The integration of pile array art and martial arts into sculptures is inspired by the capture and expression of the dynamic images of the traditional Chinese quincuncial piles. Quincuncial piles are most suitable for more than two persons to practice. The picture that people encircle together is like plum flower now stretching, now shrinking, which is indefinite while interesting. Except five types fixed, there is no certain type. Namely, the act is natural, changing, but without chaos.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
On the eve of the Guangzhou Design Week in 2017, the designer received the sincere invitation from the quartz stone manufacturer LUMINA to let him design their booth. The client proposed the requirements "seeking new forms, breaking old rules" at the beginning of the discussion, which gives designers more freedom as well as stands for greater difficulty and more challenges. Having seen the stones in the factory, the designer came up with an idea that he could make a sculpture with them. Actually, the designer has worked on sculpture, ceramic and decorative arts before. The designer maintains that it is so exciting that he could have the opportunity to do sculptures after more than twenty years.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The general impression of the booth includes 4 columns, a zenith, and an aisle. What designers thought at the beginning of the designing was how to break these frameworks, and integrated the product into the entire space structure. The product is space, and space is the product. Namely, to expand the infinite possibilities of stone means turning it into a giant sculpture art.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project duration: from November 6th to 26th , about 20 days Location: Guangzhou & Foshan in Guangdong Province, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The main body of the sculpture is made of steel frame. Each column is 50cm * 50cm wide and the length is ranging from 500cm-900cm. All surfaces of the steel frame are sealed with flame-retardant plywood except for the place where the joint is required. After completion, the weight of each column reaches more than 500kg. And with 3-5 of these cylinders in a group, comes a state of mutual dependence whose maximum vertical height attained 700cm. When comes to the second assembly, every cylinder adjusted the angle, then welded at the connection of the columns, blocked the flame plywood, finally affixed to the stone polished so that it does not reveal a trace of the internal structure.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The bottom of each column is welded with steel board, fixed by around a piece of about 0.4 to 0.5 square meters in size, up to 1.2cm thick. The bolts were then used to secure the steel plate to the ground. These bottom steel structures were all hidden under a 1300 cm * 1000 cm * 10 cm high covered black panel flame retardant cleats.The size of the Pile array is 1300cm*1000cm*700cm.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The theme of this sculpture has been added some thoughts of the designers over the years, integrating the arts and martial arts into the sculpture. The main part is a combination of the elements of the quincuncial piles.The quincuncial piles are usually straight but when someone is playing Kung Fu on it then it is actually changing. So designers employ this element in the process of designing the sculpture.

CHALLENGE:
Few people take stone or steel structures to do the booth. It is a big challenge for the host has only provided three days to array the booth. Due to the huge sculpture size, stones with a thickness of 12mm are specially made to reduce the overall weight, and the conventional thickness is 20mm. When the bracket assembly, the contact point and the force point must be meticulously calculated. And unless three plunging synchronously work together can the structure be assembled! Then each column weighs 500kg that needs 20 individuals to move. Eleven columns are finally been finished in due time with the joint efforts of all the onsite staff.
