近日,中国独立家具设计品牌梵几,分别在北京、上海、成都、深圳、杭州5个城市陆续举办了品牌创立以来最大型,也是最具创新风格的发布会。现场公布了梵几2019年最新创意广告片-梵游记。另外,梵几的高端线-山脊线家具也首次揭开了面纱。

Recently, FNJI, an independent furniture design brand in China, held the largest and most innovative product launch conference since its establishment respectively in the five cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Shenzhen and Hangzhou. The conference issued FNJI’s latest creative commercial film in 2019, Journey to FNJI. In addition, FNJI’s high-end line, Crest Line furniture, was also unveiled for the first time.

梵几创立于2010年,做实用,坚固,耐用且美的日常家具是梵几自始自终追求的品牌理念。“梵”是净空与安静的意思,“几”是家具,意为净空安静的家具,同时梵几的 谐音是“凡几”——平凡的家具。做些实实在在为生活所用,并自然融合在生活当中的家具,这就是梵几的哲学。

FNJI has been committed to the brand concept of producing practical, sturdy, durable and beautiful everyday furniture since its inception in 2010. “FN”(梵)means purity and tranquility and “JI”(几)refers to furniture, the combination of which means pure and tranquil furniture. Meanwhile, as FN (梵) is a homophone of FAN (凡) that means “ordinary” in Chinese, FANJI also denotes “ordinary furniture,” thus revealing FNJI’s philosophy of making furniture that is actually used in life and naturally integrated into life.

自品牌诞生以来,梵几一直都在潜心探寻如何将传统手工艺赋予新的设计语言,思考传承的多元可能。并以家具设计为起点,创造多一种生活方式的可能,希望藉此慢慢影响至生活更多层面的审美情趣。什么是扎根中国的美?是梵几一直以来的思考与探索。

Since the birth of the brand, FNJI has been concentrating on how to endow traditional craftsmanship with new design language. Reflecting on the multiple ways of inheritance, the brand takes furniture design as a starting point to create the possibility of a new lifestyle and hopes to slowly influence the aesthetic taste in more aspects of life. What is the beauty that takes root in China? It is a question that FNJI has always been thinking about and exploring.

不同于克制的日本、北欧,中国文化中有写意洒脱,有眼观天地的气度,底蕴深厚。梵几期望通过更深层次且含蓄的方式,表达中国特有的畅达与自由,将四面八方的灵感写意般挥洒。在日常家具基础上,此次梵几推出更具东方空灵艺术性与沉穆仪式感的高端产品线——山脊线。

Different from the restraint in cultures of Japan and Northern Europe, there is a free and easy soul in Chinese culture that is supported by profound foundation and fully embraces the world. FNJI expects to express China’s unique fluency and freedom through deeper and more subtle ways and to freely bring the inspiration from all directions into full play. Based on the production of daily furniture, this time FNJI launches a high-end product line, Crest Line, that radiates more ethereal and solemn mood.

以螳螂椅为首款产品,山脊线历时3年,从设计、结构到工艺,不断反复推敲,积聚梵几近十年来对中国设计的理解。同时,原梵几本线更名为大地线,同期发布多件大地线新品。这将是梵几自创立以来,家具更新规模最大、设计革新最具突破性的一次新品发布。

After 3 years of repeated deliberation on design, structure and craft, Crest Line takes in FNJI’s understanding about Chinese design in the last 10 years and launches mantis chair as its flagship product. Meanwhile, the previous FNJI Main Line was renamed Earth Line, with a series of Earth Line products launched concurrently. This product launch conference has presented the greatest and most creative update of furniture in terms of scale and design since FNJI’s inception.

山脊线的灵感来于自然界、儿时记忆与中国传统文化,以绘影而非写实的设计语言缓缓吐露东方美。设计集合梵几最高工艺与独具灵气的感知设计,采用更大曲线、更大尺度、更复杂的自然材质组合。相较于大地线的直线表达,山脊线多通过线条变化的起承转合展现家具中类似雕塑感的美。

Crest Line obtains inspiration from nature, childhood memory and traditional Chinese culture, gently emitting oriental beauty through a picturesque but not realistic design language. The design combines FNJI’s highest level of craft with unique lively perception and adopts a larger proportion of natural materials that have more curves and greater complexity. Compared with Earth Line’s straight-line expression, Crest Line tends to showcase a sculpture-like beauty in furniture through changing lines.

在材质选择上,梵几一直坚持以实木为主体,山脊线家具在此基础上融合皮、羊毛布料、石材等多种自然材质,巧妙拿捏材质间的变化节奏,带来多元搭配的可能。在众多质感里,梵几更加偏爱粗犷而非光亮的质地,更不用说自然界中的质感本身多为粗犷。如布满孔洞的洞石,孔洞源于地质变化,积蓄来自自然的力量,这也契合梵几“生长于野,安于室”的本质,回归自然与练达。

In terms of choice of materials, FNJI always uses solid wood as main body and Crest Line adds several natural materials such as leather, wool cloth, and stone to create multiple combinations by ingeniously grasping the variation rhythm of materials. FNJI favors rough instead of shinning texture, which is also the major texture of nature. Travertine, a porous rock that derives from geologic variation and accumulates the power of nature, is a good example. This is in line with FNJI’s essential concept of “born in wilderness and settle in house,” a return to nature and simplicity.

材质运用之外,梵几对木色也有着极致追求。为了呈现一种更为生动的黑,设计团队历时两年时间试验,通过化学反应让木头的纹理打开,自身产生颜色变化,再使用透明感木蜡油加以调和,两层颜色、数遍打磨、加长工艺周期打造出两款全新木色——新骏马黑与考拉灰。对梵几来说,黑有50种甚至更多,色偏、质地、光亮度、透明程度都赋予了颜色相异性格,而梵几对家具呈现的精准把握恰恰体现在这微妙的分毫之间。

Apart from the adoption of materials, FNJI has very consistent pursuit of wood color. To present a more lively black, the design team created two brand new wood colors after 2 years of experiments, new steed black and koala black. They used chemical reactions to open up the wood’s texture and naturally changed its color. Modified with transparent wood wax, repeated polish, extended processing period, the wood finally presents the ideal new colors. For FNJI, black has more than 50 variations, all of which have unique characteristics, a result from color deviation, texture, luminance, and transparency. FNJI’s precise perception of furniture is perfectly embodied in these tiny differences.

设计方面,山脊线延续了梵几一贯对自然与传统生活的感知,将东方哲思凝萃于设计灵韵中。山沙发采用悬空的对称式设计,底大上小,四平八稳,氤氲一股中国道家的仙风道骨之气。团扇屏风以实木木框与带有孔隙的藤面结合,中间留有缝隙,如中国水墨画的虚实汇通,也如宇宙间的星球一般。而鸟笼系列柜从传统的市井生活中寻到灵感,与古代木条文玩柜异曲同工,传承在潜移默化中发生。

In regard to design, Crest Line continues FNJI’s persistent perception of nature and traditional life and integrates eastern philosophy into design. Mountain sofa adopts levitated symmetrical design. Its bigger bottom, smaller top, smooth surface and stable structure embody the immortal spirit of Chinese Taoism. Round fan screen is made of solid wood frame and porous rattan surface, just like the convergence of the void and the solid in Chinese ink painting, also like the planets in the universe. The birdcage cabinet series are inspired by traditional street life and is similar with the ancient wooden cabinet for collectables, displaying how inheritance takes place in an unconscious way.

山脊线的设计中拥有大量线条的扭转变化,在处理弧线时,梵几摒弃相较省料的西方热弯工艺,而采用中国传统方式,从一整块实木大料中剖出完整弧线,最大程度保留了木头纹理,有横有纵有疏有密,呈现极具自然感的美。而BELLY沙发的扶手设计,在曲线内收的同时,打造了一个近似三角形的木头自身扭转,手肘可直接落于旋转中的平坦带上,体感舒适。这种三维的线条变化仅能通过木工匠人亲手打磨实现,每只带有细微变化,是由手创造的灵动的美,氤氲自然气息。

The design of Crest Line features lots of twists and turns of lines. In dealing with curves, FNJI rejects western heat blending technique that relatively saves materials and chooses traditional Chinese way of cutting out an intact curve from a large solid wood to preserve the wood’s veins to the greatest extent. As a result, horizontal, vertical, sparse and dense veins in the wood exhibit extreme natural beauty. The armrests of BELLY sofa have inward curves and sub-triangular torsion design. One can put elbows in the smooth area in the torsions to keep a comfortable posture. This three-dimensional line change can only be achieved by wood craftsman’s hands. Therefore, each sofa is a little different from one the other while all of them reflect a natural atmosphere and the vivid beauty created by hands.

值得一提的是,山脊线家具系列设计了多款带灯光家具,打破常规对家具与灯的认知界限,实用家具同样可作氛围灯,为空间增添散光源。而因家具的设计巧思,光有不同呈现,隔着金属丝网便显朦胧,隔着木条有灯火阑珊之美,而高高低低的灯光布局则错落有致,几件灯光家具便可营造数个具有氛围的夜晚。

It is worth mentioning that Crest Line furniture series have designed several pieces of furniture with lights to break the conventional conception boundaries between furniture and lamps. A piece of practical furniture can serve as an additional light source to create atmosphere. Due to delicate design of furniture and well-arranged high and low layout of lamps, light has different presentations and generates a hazy and harmonious beauty through wire mesh or battens. Therefore, a few pieces of furniture with lights can easily add atmosphere to numerous nights.

 

大地线|Earth Line

大地线,原梵几本线,做日常生活中坚固、耐用且美的家具,注重生活实用性,成本与空间的高效利用为优先设计考量因素,简单、质朴,葆有中国的设计语言,是融入日常生活的家具设计。此次大地线更推出藤编系列,实木结合藤编材质,轻巧的同时视觉更显丰富。

Earth Line, the previous FNJI Main Line, is devoted to making solid, durable and beautiful furniture used in daily life. Paying attention to practicality, Earth Line takes the efficient use of cost and space as priority design consideration.
