燕椅的設計啟發 Inspiration of Hirundo Chair

一張即將被丟掉的老椅子,讓我們更想為臺灣保留自己的文化記憶

第一次認真凝視老孔雀椅,是在外婆家。那是一批即將被丟掉的椅子。媽媽說,那是外婆的嫁妝,爾後也變成外婆家的餐椅。根據長輩的記憶,這是一種40年代左右出現的老椅子,設計者已不可考。人們通稱它為「孔雀椅」或「福州椅」,當時家家戶戶都有幾把,很多人持續使用至今。這是台灣人惜物愛物的性格,也是一種保存記憶的方式。

 

當年,大家還坐在方正厚重的明式椅上時,出現了這樣一把台、日、洋混血風格的椅子 (如左第一張照片),用料大幅減少、圓椅面、弧形椅腳,帶有中式風味的簡約穩重,拿起來卻很輕便,可以到處放置使用。在40年代,的確成為一種獨特新穎的潮流。

 

「原來,在台灣的過去有這麼好的東西,其實都默默地被一群惜物愛物的人們保存下來,我們想要慢慢地把它找出來。」

於是乎,經過12個月的細細琢磨造型,根據現代的技法重新設計結構,為了各種生活情境的想像去調整細節,一把傳承了孔雀椅靈魂的新椅子就這樣誕生了。我們以燕子為其命名,一方面希望表現它重生後輕盈俐落的樣貌,一方面希望它能帶著燕子象徵的幸福好運,飛進每一位台灣人的家中。​

An old chair that was going to be discarded drove us to keep our culture and memories for Taiwan.


It was in my grandmother's house that I met the old peacock chairs that they were going to be thrown away. 'They were my mother's dowries and  were served as our dinning chairs' my mother said. According to their memories, this type of chairs can be seen in many people's house back in 40's. The designer or the first craftsman who made it was untraceable. It has a name called 'the peacock chair' or 'Fuzhou chair.' There are still few models that was kept well until now. It shows that how the folk cherish their goods and memories.

At the time, when most people are sitting on the square and heavy Min style chairs, a chair with fusion characters with Taiwanese, Japanese and European appeared in the the market. With less material, rounded seat, curve lined legs, it is steady and simple, and light enough to take anywhere. The peacock chair became one of the most seen furniture at that time.

"Knowing the old chair led our journey to reveal and cultivate our story in Taiwan."

After 12 months design and constantly refinements, a new chair that inherits the old peacock chair released. It is named Hirundo as it represents blessing and happiness with an image of lightness and modern style.
