顾名思义,马扎灯的设计源自中国传统坐具“马扎”带来的结构启发。它恰到好处地和设计师想要创造一款可无限延伸的灯具的想法相契合。此次杭州的工作室展览是对马扎灯系统在形态上的突破和延展,以此来体现马扎灯系统无穷的变换属性。

▼马扎灯系统展览概观,overview of the Mazha Lighting System exhibition

Mazha Lighting System was inspired by the structure of the traditional Chinese ‘Mazha’ seat‘ coupled with the designer’s wish to create a modular extension of a lighting installation. Mario Tsai studio solo exhibition in Hangzhou is a breakthrough and extension of the shape of the Mazha Lighting System, in order to reflect the infinite transformation properties.

▼马扎灯具设计概念,design concept of Mazha Lighting System

可以无限延伸的组合形态基于突破常规的电路及结构设计。电线被巧妙地隐藏进灯具的悬吊丝线中,基于系统以12V的安全电压供电,整个灯具系统的裸露的金属零件也被设计成了电路的一部分,由此构成了一个内在复杂但外观简洁的模块化结构系统。

The combination form that can be extended indefinitely is based on breaking the conventional circuit and structure design. The wires are subtly hidden into the hanging thread of the lighting system. Based on the system’s 12V safe voltage supply, the exposed metal parts of the lighting system are also designed as part of the circuit, thus forming a modular structure system that is inherently complex but simple in appearance.

另一方面,在此次设计是设计师可持续的设计理念的进一步探索实践。细看产品的各个零部件会发现,设计师并没有丝毫隐藏结构的意图,每一个零部件都是极精细而独立的存在。这样做的好处在于,当产品某个部件出了问题而需要更换的时候,它只需替换症结点,而不必替换掉整个产品。

On the other hand, this design is a further exploration of the designer’s sustainable design concept. A closer look at the various components of the product reveals that the designer does not have the intent to hide the structure, and each component is extremely fine and independent. The advantage of this is that when a component of a product is broken and needs to be replaced, it only needs to replace the node without having to replace the entire lighting system.

得益于X形的结构设计,马扎灯1.0可以在三维方向上延伸。阵列的组合方式可以让有限的体量呈现出无限的视觉张力, 所以马扎灯1.0非常适合在大体量的空间环境里应用。

Benefit from the X-shaped structural design, Mazha 1.0 can be extended in three dimensions. A limited number of tubes can achieve an unlimited amount of visual tension through array combinations, so Mazha 1.0 is ideal for use in large space environments.

不同于马扎灯1.0突出的体量感,马扎灯2.0意在创造一种轻盈的视觉感受。柔软的丝线与硬质的灯管的关系,好似韧带与骨骼,相互连接、支撑,构成一张或伶俐或巨大的光网。这样的平面延伸结构,让马扎灯2.0不仅可以作为吊灯使 用,同时可以用作贴近墙面的灯光装置,也可以用作空间的软分隔结构。

Unlike the sense of volume of Mazha1.0, Mazha 2.0 is intended to create a light visual experience. The relationship between the soft wires and the hard tubes are like ligaments and bones, connected to each other and support with each other to forming a piece of small or huge optical network. Such a plane extension structure allows Mazha 2.0 to be used not only as a ceiling light, but also as a light fixture close to the wall, or as a soft partition structure for the space.
