Designers are similar to artists in some ways. For example, bounden duty is to depict an ideal state for others. So, if you want the client to believe in your design, is it necessary for you to have at least a certain level of context in order to have a certain right to speak? This is the logic of Valley setting.You can feel this in our new work, SG design office.
It’s exciting to think about creating a truly minimalist, blank office space of your own, but it’s equally difficult for many people. As we all know, there are at least a few sketches of the blank art of ink and wash painting, and our office, after turning from a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional space, is almost endless white except for space corners and lights, minimalist hysteria.

Our space expression can be summarized as “design space with architectural language” and “light and shade, line-to-line dialogue”. The entrance and corridor are the best evidence. A single white wall alone can give people a sharp sense of shock. We have repeatedly portrayed the changing wall relationship in the aisle. Let “nature’s cheapest and most precious light” shuttle freely, and the light source ambushed in it, “see the light without the source,” the air is changeable. In our view, there is no better praise than this.

At each quiet and beautiful turning point in the corridor, we decorated trees, dry mountains and rivers, and fog glass scenes, which quietly appeared among them, like life rising from the ground, and ignited life here…The intention behind this is to let the whole space break all the frameworks and definitions, freely and freely. Great to natural beauty of silence, small to delicate changes in light and shade, are full of breathtaking beauty.

In terms of functional layout, we advocate “open” and “changeable” rather than redundant design, but do design full of practical and embrace change. You can see our multimedia hall, seemingly a restrained subtraction and a functional distinction — “the most uncomfortable chair” for one side of the concise, long conference table, and “the most comfortable chair” for the other side of the sinking chat area. The whole environment is white and peaceful. But in fact, behind this white wall, or the trophy wall, is a television, is a wall of storage, and even a huge bookcase, rich and powerful shock. Moreover, if you enter the entertainment scene, the cool white light will disappear, instead, is filled with emotional colored lights, landing glass to adjust to the atomization state, turn on the TV, sound the music, no contradiction. In addition, there are leisure, visitor lighting and other scenarios, which are designed according to the needs of psychology and scenarios, intelligent optical control system and variable layout.

Similarly, “using cold technology and objects to hedge transformation, expression of temperature,” is another feature of SG. For example, in the founder’s office, the seemingly rugged bricks and stones are behind stories of conversations with friends when inspiration is gathered, and the cool paper lanterns are used to express the deeper traditional rhyme in a modern way… This is in the experience of change and self-polishing, we projected the emotional delicacy and mental evidence, very precious and irreproducible. But “not all designs can be called minimalism,” all hidden, all minimalism comes at a price. This price is seen behind the whole staff of SG ten years to sharpen a sword of design effort, and to achieve the ideal height of Nirvana rebirth of self-challenge and determination.
