DESIGN NAME:
Eyes

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Flower Stand

INSPIRATION:
This design comes from the inspiration of human eyes that are seeking for wonderful things in the Mother Nature. The eyes stand for the vision. The oval golden sphere represents the icon of eye and vision. The eyes eagerly reach out and intend to accommodate many kinds of plants.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The oval golden sphere is designed with different hole sizes to accommodate stems of flowers or plants. The three sets of legs are perfect for any kind of surface configuration. Leg length is adjustable.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This installation is intended to be displayed statically.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started from scratch since 2016 in Taipei. The golden ball was made around April 2017. The duration was about 2 months with intensive works.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The golden oval sphere was created by parametric 3D design software with two layers of concentric surfaces under an order of random openings. The sphere was 3D-printed in Nylon.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The size is 23.5cm(W) x 30cm(H) x 12cm(D). The out-most surface is covered by gold foil.

TAGS:
flower stand, eyes, Mother Nature, parametric design, rapid-prototyping

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researches were made to the composition of openings or penetrated hole to accommodate flower stems in a dazzling order.

CHALLENGE:
A parametric program was applied to create an order that is functional and also eye-catching. The vocabulary of openings or holes looks like random but actually is very flexible for different kinds of flower shapes. The two pairs of legs can be extended or retracted a little for different level conditions of surface. The entire sphere is covered by gold foil as a symbol of vision. But it is difficult to cover inside through such small and complicated openings. A golden paint was applied inside instead. The application of gold foil requires special skill.
