Appreciation towards Waterfrom Design for providing the following description:


In the winter time, the four seasons gently fall into the soil. They squeeze, sleep, submit, turn into carbon black mud, and wait to get through the severe coldness. The carbon color of the cultivated land symbolizes recuperation. The kind of blackness is the purity and quietness that returns to the essence, until it wakes up in the spring, regenerates, nourishes the new buds, and develops into another season’s life cycle.

以炭养泥 以黑蕴气
Nurturing mud with charcoal, and accumulating energy with black


In the early spring, there is a formula in the mud. The ashes nurture nutrients and life levels from the barren black, awakening the prosperity of crops. We try to use different substances to describe the rich touch of carbon black, simulating the subtle spring atmosphere in the fields, just like the relationship between the scalp and hair metabolism and nourishment, over and over again.

We use different woods to dye black and build the stairs and facade of the stepped passage that leads to the experience space on the second floor. Stepping up the stairs, we can see the hues of black with different luster, expressing different levels of quietness and gradual evolution, while opening the prelude to experience the essence of nature.

We use fine metal meshes full of twists and feels to build the main visual wall of the brand with levels of forward and withdrawal surfaces. Imagining the tissues and pores of the scalp from the inside to the outside, they stand still as pure symbols in the space. It marks knowledge clues, and explains the laws of the alternating rise and fall of life and breathing, as well as the key role that plants play here.

以终为始 循环无界
Start with the end, and the cycle has no boundaries


In the natural prototype, whether it is the winding ridges that connect the farmland, the curvature of the hair, the edges of the veins or the ups and downs of the mountains are not orderly, but they are admiring. Rough freehand lines without manual sorting are the core concepts that we want to reproduce in the shape of space. Therefore, the standard cabinet door frame retreats behind the carbon black facade and the multi-layered black gauze circles are used to draw the shield of organic lines. Replacing the flat artificial medium with burnt black carbonized wood shows the simple cycle after removing the exterior prosperous affectation. The end is also the beginning.

The black with different touches creates a ritual experience line. In this process, users collect clues by themselves and piece the elements together. Through space, we can comprehend the interlocking origin of the nature, as well as the value refined from it through time. Step into a primitive cycle and use your five sense intuition to access memories. Imagine the rain, the glimmer of the cold spring, the life of the new buds of the treetops. Mixed with the wet black mud, they turn into the breath in the wind…
