Taiwan Pavilion @ 100% Design London:


“Qiyun—Eastern Essence—The Slow Living Movement of the New East”

Theme Concept:
Qiyun is an aesthetic principle unique to the East. It is composed of two Chinese characters: Qi is commonly know throughout the world as the life-force or vitality coursing through all things—Yun conveys a sense of internal harmony, similar to the rhyme or meter of poetry. Qiyun can be can be understood as the essence of a creation, perceptible only by a kind of sixth sense. “Qiyun—Eastern Essence” has been chosen as the theme for Taiwan’s Cultural and Creative Industries Pavilion as a gesture of moving away from the concept of past themes, such as “Eastern Trends” or “Chinese Trends,” which merely emphasized the elements of products’ exterior design. The concept behind “Qiyun—Eastern Essence” conveys a quality beyond appearance, taking traditional Eastern values such as “core humanitarianism,” “respecting Heaven and loving the Earth,” and “the harmonious cosmos,” concepts both primeval and with contemporary significance, having a unique spirit both humanistic and naturalistic at heart, and melding them with the products of modern life. This combination creates a kind of fresh lifestyle, characterized by the “slow living” movement of the “New East.”

Marc Newson: Transport Exhibition NYC

Image:Ford 021c Concept
Marc Newson’s Transport exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City. The show presents the full range of commissioned vehicles and mobility projects designed by Newson. The types of projects represented is nearly as wide as the scale. At one end is the EADS Astrium Space Plane prototype designed to take tourists into space and at the other is the Zvezdochka trainer for Nike meant to be used by Russian cosmonauts on extended stay at the International Space Station.

The exhibition is also the premier of Newson’s latest project, a speedboat designed for the iconic Italian boat-maker Riva. The limited edition boat (only 22 will be produced) is called the Aquariva and is a mix of Newson’s streamlined style with some of the character of the original Aquariva from the 1960’s.

Also part of the show is the 021c concept car Newson designed for Ford back in 1999. We’ve mentioned before that this vehicle is still striking today and still looks fantastic in person.
