“椅moji”是一系列用户可以自定义的凳子,产品名称源自使用手机聊天时常用的表情包emoji。表情包是次世代的新文字,在移动设备的对话中不时抛出的表情包承载了各种各样的含义和无法言明的情绪。我们希望这系列的家具,经由使用者的设计,也拥有某种自我表达。

Chair-moji is a set of stools/chairs designed for family, especially for children and their parents. The name of chair-moji comes from emoji, which is the new universal language for the young generation in digital world. These very simple graphic icons could convey very complicated and ambiguous meanings, shape the way we communicate with others. We want to bring this digital language back to the real world.

▼“椅moji”系列,Chair-moji collection

椅moji目前有两个系列:表情系列和动物系列。

Chair-moji has two lines of products: the expression line and the animal line.

 

 

表情系列
Expression Line

 

表情系列以凳面的不同表情的为特点,这也是“椅moji”名字的由来。二次元的表情包通过数控加工展现在实体家具上,让生活中的平常家具也生动起来。通过几种基本元素(眼睛、眉毛、嘴)的组合,可以获得丰富多样的表情,表达不同的心情。在形式之外,这些表情也跟功能和结构发生联系:嘴有时可以作为拿凳子的把手,眼睛有时候是固定凳面的木圆榫,而豁牙则是展现结构的榫卯节点。

The expression line is a small stool without backrest. Emoji icon is carved into the stool top by CNC machine and it gives the stool a lively look. By combining several basic elements(i.e. eyes, eyebrows, mouth, tooth), the stool could have hundreds of different expressions, just like the numerous emoji icons. Those expressions are sometimes functional and reflect its own structure. The mouth can be used as a hand holder to pick up the stool easily. The eyes are the round pin joints connecting the seat top and the legs. The front tooth is made of a tenon joint.

 

 

动物系列
Animal Line

 

动物系列将椅子的靠背设计为小动物的头像。我们希望通过这种“拟人”化的方式,在孩子的日常使用之物中加入情感连接。与孩子们朝夕相处的不光是家具,在某种程度上,也是朋友。

The animal line is a chair with an animal shaped backrest. By designing a chair that looks like an animal, we wish to establish an emotional connection between the owner and his furniture. The animal chair is not merely a piece of furniture, it may be more of a friend to a child.

动物系列的设计不断延伸,将有多种小动物造型,提供给用户自定义。小动物的头像造型可以作为座椅靠背使用,也可以像小木马一样反骑、侧坐。一个简单的小家具可以发挥小朋友的想象力,提供多种场景的使用功能。

Apart from forward sitting position, a child can also sit backward on the animal chair like riding a horse. Its abstract form and simply design is to encourage children to unleash the power of imagination and to create different user scenarios by themselves.

“椅moji”所有的凳子和椅子都提供若干种高度选择,从幼童使用的小椅子到成人使用的吧椅,让椅moji成为一套家长和儿童可以共同使用的多功能家具。

The chair-moji series has a wide ranges of heights, from a first chair for a toddler to a bar stool for an adult.

椅moji还有一款配套的微信同名小程序(在微信中搜索“椅moji”小程序),用户可以在移动端自由定制凳子和椅子的各种元素,发挥自己的创造力,搭配出理想的椅子。这种app应用和实体家具结合的服务,也再一次强化了椅moji的主题:在这个虚拟和现实结合的互联网时代,家具在基本的功能之外,还应该具有更多的数字表情和互动娱乐的功能。

We also designed a plug-in for WeChat App under the same name Chair-moji. By using this plug-in on mobile phones, customers can mix and match different elements to create their very own stools or chairs. Chair-moji provides functional furniture together with an unique customization experience.
