黄 铜是由铜和锌所组成的合金。随着铜锌合金的冶炼技术的成熟，在中国明嘉靖年间，中国人开始有意识的使用这种具有 美丽金黄色泽、耐磨耐用的材料铸造钱币，并广泛的应用于生活和建筑。明亮精美的黄铜制品经过长时间使用表面会逐渐 氧化，随之出现带有浓厚韵味的古朴色调，使人留恋。
这一次，出于对黄铜这种古典而含蓄的的材质的喜爱和兴趣，THENCREATIVE把它移植在U盘设计上，精巧的、带有明亮色泽的黄铜U盘，厚重而大 气，随着长时间使用，材料的颜色与质感发生改变，将焕发出独一无二的光彩，黄铜也渐渐显露 出它的独特魅力。这次也是我们初次尝试黄铜材质的U盘，设计是一个与使用者互动的过程，大家在使用和体验的同时，黄铜自身的变化也会记载许多故事。

With their innovative concept for designing a smart kitchen, four students of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s School of Design (PolyU Design) have recently won the Best Design Team Award at the Collaborative Innovation Design Workshop held during the fourth International Art & Design Academic Month organized by Tsinghua University.
The PolyU Design team competed against six other teams, which came from Academy of Arts and Design of Tsinghua University, School of Design of National Yunlin University of Science and Technology of Taiwan, Department of Industrial Product Design of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, and other three universities in China.
The workshop brief was to design an integrated concept for family kitchen which caters for Chinese lifestyle. The PolyU Design team designed “A Smart Kitchen On-demand”, which is set up to cater for the needs of modern Chinese cooking and dining behaviors. It is designed to enhance the value of the kitchen in a family, providing a platform to communicate, share and show caring. The design provides a solution making kitchen no longer a fixed space at home but part of the living room.
The workshop and the fourth International Art & Design Academic Month was held from 10 to 14 December 2012 in Guangzhou, China.
Hong Kong design gallery, ilivetomorrow, presents Fragment(s), a series of porcelain vases designed exclusively by Julie Progin and Jesse McLin of Latitude 22N for the LIMITEDunLIMITED Editions collection. Located in the Jiangxi province and known as the porcelain city of China, Jingdezhen has a history of over 2000 years in porcelain making. Artist and designers Jesse Mc Lin and Julie Progin have been working there for over four years during which they have established a production studio and developed several porcelain collections for their own brand, for private clients and for special commissions. Julie and Jesse’s investigation of Jingdezhen also lead them around the city where the landscape is undeniably shaped by the ceramic industry with mountains of remains composed mainly of broken molds and porcelain pieces. these residues bring to light the entropy of the processes in ceramic production and revealed themselves to Jesse and Julie as a poetic decay, offering a kind of ‘real-time’ archeology of the city that inspired FRAGMENT(S). at ilivetomorrow G/F 43 Tung Street Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

While much of the attention paid to China’s emerging young designers tends to lean towards the apparel market, the country’s up-and-coming fine jewelry makers too are showing a keen eye for design. Among the handful of rising stars on the “designed-in-China” high-end jewelry scene is Central Saint Martins-educated, award-winning designer He Fang (何方). Working in 18K gold, Swarovski crystals, silver and white gold, He creates designs both whimsical and classic, with designs inspired by everything from snowflakes to stars.
Affordably priced in the 1,100-2,200 yuan (US$177-353) range, He’s pieces — including some exclusives — are available at one of our favorite multi-brand retailers, Dong Liang Studio.

The question of water dispensers has always been how to differentiate? Realizing the importance of changes in the modern home and consumer preferences, a strategy of minimalism and functionality was opted for. The sleek curved body creates an angled and minimalistic user interface for convenient control and view that earned itself a coveted iF Product Design Award for 2013. Connected to 3M filtration systems, the dispenser provides the user with ambient, cold and hot filtrated water at the touch of a button. The device also has installed a clock, an energy saving function and even a child safety lock.
