soft pond是nendo为施华洛世奇家居工作室设计的水晶托盘系列。

设计采用了吊灯和连衣裙中常用的平切水晶材料,随着厚度的增加,托盘的颜色也会变得愈加饱和。这一现象在大型的水体中也会见到,比如越深的湖泊颜色也越深。因此,借助水晶的厚度变化,能够为产品赋予丰富的色调和深度。

A range of small crystal trays for “Atelier Swarovski Home”, a home collection launched by an Austrian crystal brand Swarovski, founded in 1895. 

A unique quality of flat-cut crystals, used for chandeliers and dresses, is that the thicker the material is, the more saturated its color gets. The same phenomenon appears in large bodies of water – the deeper the lake is, the darker its color. Therefore, a mix of crystal thicknesses was used in the objects to gain a range of shades and convey a feeling of depth.

水晶的厚度由上至下逐渐增加,从顶部的4mm开始,增至5mm,6mm,最后到底部的7mm。锥形的体态使其在外沿变薄,产生与相同深度的水体类似的效果。最终的效果宛如一个个小池塘被放置在桌上。该系列共有4种不同的尺寸,但材料的厚度变化保持了一致,为的是在同时使用多个托盘时能够获得和谐统一的效果。

The crystals were made by gradually increasing the thickness from top down, starting with 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, then 7mm. They were also tapered so they will become thinner towards the outer periphery, to create a gradient effect within the same depth of water. The result is a small vessel that resembles a small pond scooped up and placed on the table. The trays come in four different sizes, all with change of cutting at the same thickness, aimed to make the depth of water appear the same when using several vessels at the same time.

倾斜的托盘表面是通过酸洗技术而制成的,逐渐扩大酸池可以有效地达到预期的比例控制。这种以液体为基础的制造工艺与池塘的设计概念在生产中自然地形成了呼应。

The incline on the upper surface was created using a technique of acid pickling, controlling the desired proportion by gradually enlarging the pool of acid. The appearance of this liquid-based manufacturing process supplements the overall concept by evoking the image of small ponds also during production.
